Probably the most serious miscalculation...is the guest list for the NRA speaker's podium. To let the half-wit half-term quitter Sarah Palin have a microphone is to alienate the very people Republicans need to work with on future legislation....
...The NRA advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America. That's treason, and it's worthy of the firing squad....
... To support the new NRA president's agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason. And many invite it gladly as if the African-American president we voted for is somehow infringing on their Constitutional rights.
Ah, yes: it is so foundationally important that criticism of the President be based only upon racist objection to half his ancestry. There obviously cannot be any objection based on policy, nor is there any argument save that of racism that the government is infringing in any slight degree any Constitutionally enumerated rights. After all, the president is elected, therefore anything the President does is constitutionally authorized. If you disagree, you can only be doing so because you are racist. Just ask the AP. Or James Rosen. Or True the Vote. Or Gibson Guitar. I expect they would all tell you right up front that their objections to The President Who Was Elected are based entirely upon their own racism.
