I will occasionally watch Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO as a way to test my patience and capacity for serenity. Usually I’m infuriated by 20 minutes in to the show, and I have to turn the channel lest I put a bullet in my TV. However, this weekend I made it through the whole show, thanks in no small part to the little package of awesome that is Megan McCain. But I digress – at the end of the show, Bill Maher pulled put the sad panda routine, when he went on a 5 minute rant about the Democrats are too right wing and how they don’t support gun control. I had to laugh, because it sounded just like Josh Sugarmann and Paul Helmke whining about the same thing.
Bill, I’ll tell why Democrats don’t support gun control: they want to get reelected. I know you think that us gun owners are a bunch of mouth breathing rednecks, but the facts are that gun control continues to be a losing political battle for your side. I would apologize, but that’s a sign of weakness.
