A moment of meditation with the incomparable Sarah Palin:
Do you know why those clownish little Kumbaya-humming fairytale-inhaling liberals want to be tough all of a sudden and control your guns? It’s 'cuz guys like Al Franken and Harry Reid, they are not satisfied with just taking your money and your job, your truck and your property and your rights, your healthcare--they didn’t want to just stop at that.
Thus spoke the hyperborean harpy at this weekend's NRA convention, adding, because no lunacy is ever too low, that "if I were in charge, [detainees] would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists." But wait, did I say the incomparable Sarah Palin? Hardly.
Rick Santorum was there, too, revealing that "he buys his wife bullets rather than flowers on special occasions." Ted Cruz, via video, said Democrats are laying "constant siege" to the Second Amendment. Marco Rubio pulled out the old If we outlaw guns only outlaws will have 'em routine, and Bobby Jindal, the poor thing, "called people in favor of gun control 'liberal extremists' who also 'want to take away our religious liberty' and health insurance options."
Meanwhile, CBS's Bob Schieffer said on his Sunday show that he's been informed that Mitt Romney is ready to reenter Bedlam, should Jeb Bush display some minimal sanity and run for the hills. The latter contingency seems improbable, but it makes no difference; a Bush is as good as a Romney and a Romney's good as a Bush in the GOP's psych ward of primary afflictions. Spend enough time there and you become as necessarily goofy as all the others.
Nurse Wretched set the pace back in 2008. Now, it's tradition.
