NRA Has Gone Bonkers

Last week I suggested that Wayne LaPierre should retire because his Scary Messages were getting shopworn.

That's changed. Wayne should retire because he's gone bonkers.

...internal Senate emails confirmed by NRA Board Members show that the National Rifle Association’s management team has explicitly and directly told the NRA’s board they are prohibited from testifying about second amendment issues during the Elena Kagan confirmation hearings.

That’s right: the foremost gun rights lobby in the nation is prohibiting its board from testifying in the Elena Kagan confirmation hearings about the second amendment.

And it's not only formal testimony; LaPierre has instructed his Board not to talk about the Kagan nomination as private individuals, either.

I don't have a copy of the NRA constitution and bylaws handy. But in any OTHER organization, the Chief Operating Officer (LaPierre) reports to the Board.

Evidently LaPierre thinks that the NRA Board reports to him.

(Sorta like "Bite Me" Biden thinks that taxpayers report to him and should kiss his ass for showing up and mooching food while pretending to be a regular guy.)

Sorry, Wayne. JPFO or GOA are the alternatives, and they are consistent.
