As frequently happens, Charlie Pierce gets it spot on. His topic today: Wayne LaPierre's speech at CPAC. Wayne, who has pretty obviously gone completely around the bend, sez:
We trust what we know in our hearts to be right.We trust our freedom. In this uncertain world, surrounded by lies and corruption everywhere you look, there is no greater freedom than the right to survive and protect our families with all the rifles, shotguns and handguns we want. We know, in the world that surrounds us, there are terrorists and there are home invaders, drug cartels, carjackers, knockout gamers and rapers, and haters and campus killers, and airport killers, shopping mall killers, and killers who scheme to destroy our country with massive storms of violence against our power grids, or vicious waves of chemicals or disease that could collapse our society that sustains us all."
Pierce nails it when he mildly observes that the world LaPierre lives in as "a Cormac McCarthy novel, except without the laughs." The poor rabbit, it's a wonder he can crawl out from under the bed each morning to face the day. I'd like to see a Wayne LaPierre commercial for adult diapers: "It's an ugly world out there, with pants-filling menaces around every corner. That's why everywhere I go I'm armed to the teeth- and that's why I wear Depends." Serioulsy, where does this guy live? I want to be sure to avoid the places where he shops, because it sounds like the Whole Foods he goes to is like a Peckinpah movie.

Funny thing about these loud gun toters, the ones I know are boastful and yet frightened of ordinary life. I'd hate to live in their mind set
