A truly emblematic new leader

I imagine, if we tried, we could easily have a half-dozen people sit around a table and when the question posed is, “If you could create the perfect stereotype for the new President of the NRA, what would he (because it’s gonna be a guy) be like?

And after about 30 seconds we would probably come up with this:

1.  He would be from the South.

2.  He would be certain that Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton tried to get the U.N. to take his guns away.

3.  He would refer to the Civil War as “The War of Northern Agression”.

4.  He’d call Obama a “Euro-peen” Socialist (to which I’d respond, “if only!”)

5.  He would look like Yosemite Sam.

Well, four out of five isn’t bad.

And, sorry Elmer Fudd.

Fatster's Roundup



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
