NRA Rallies Around a Coke Dealer ... Will Repubs Follow its Lead?
Well, it took them long enough, but the National Rifle Association (NRA) has trotted out their ultimate weapon:
... the NRA said it would consider senators' votes on Sotomayor when evaluating candidates in future.
In other words, a vote for Sonia Sotomayor is a vote against the Second Amendment, the NRA, and possibly apple pie.
In a letter to the Senate leadership, NRA officials said they were "disturbed" by Sotomayor, in part because of her vote:
... to uphold the drug-distribution conviction of an illegal alien found with 1.2 kilos of cocaine base and a pistol.
Hey, it's no tattered flag, but why shouldn't Senate Republicans rally around an undocumented immigrant who was packing heat while peddling 1200 grams of blow? It will be a nice change of pace from defending their latest C Street colleague.
