This is why America can't have nice things. Like, say, children who are alive.
[Radio host Alan Colmes]: So [teachers] shouldn’t have machine guns?

[South Carolina Senate candidate Lee Bright]: I would think a teacher protecting a school grounds should be able to carry whatever she can carry legally.

COLMES: So should machine guns be legal to carry?

BRIGHT: The Second Amendment is pretty clear. It says the right to carry arms should not be infringed. [...]

COLMES: So you should be able to have any gun you want?

BRIGHT: Well, I don’t see how the government can regulate it.

South Carolina state Sen. Lee Bright, a RepublicanOfCourse, is mounting a primary challenge to insufficiently conservative Sen. Lindsey Graham. He wants high schoolers to learn how to use guns in school, and doesn't think the damn gubbermint has a right to tell you whether or not you can bring your own personal grenade launcher or futuristic death robot to school if you feel like that sort of thing. You know, Freedom.

We are a very odd country. Perhaps this new obsession with guns is our way of reliving the Cold War, back when the only possible defense was an existentially punishing offense; a certain segment of society now applies the same rhetoric, and the same logic, to their battles against crime, their battles against the gubbermint, even their battles against the local library system or theater or elementary school.

When it comes to the Second Amendment, a wide swath of America really does consider it to be a suicide pact.

We have been setting for elected officials a hell of a bar with Jim "you lie!" DeMint and Mark "but she's my soul mate" Sanford. Theres no way Graham can keep up. He keeps on having painful bouts of logic and pragmatism that show him capable of effective leadership and an inability to maintain the necessary rabid and unthinking dogmatism required in today's conservative political arena.

Oh dear. You may be right about that, especially when considered in light of what else I just came across.

It pretty much is gobbledygook. Jim DeMint was the super classy guy who shouted "you lie" at Obama while Obama was giving a speech in congress. Sanford was our governor who disappeared for a few days "hiking" and then come to find out he'd run to Argentina(!)to carry on an affair with his brand new soul mate while the wife and kids were up here but he still tried to lie and say he was in this country and hiking the blue ridge trail. It eventually came out that he'd left the country multiple times without telling anyone and he really didn't understand why everyone was so pissed. Yeah. Yeah.
The best I could say about that was at least Sanford wasn't born and raised here so south Carolina doesn't have to take full responsibility for how he turned out.
