NRA: Any Lie Will Do, If It Serves A Political Purpose

Most sane people would assume that President Obama's daughters' school, Sidwell Friends School, does not have armed guards in its employ. Sidwell, affiliated with the Religious Society of Friends (i.e., Quakers), is about as committed a nonviolent institution as exists anywhere in the United States. And they actively deny that their school guards are packing... at all.

Yet the N.R.A. (forget about my publishing a link; find it yourself), in a TV ad, called the president an "elitist hypocrite" for sending his daughters to a school that has armed guards while opposing such guards at other schools.

So... what gives? what's really going on?

Simple, really... the N.R.A., in its ad, is a bunch of goddamned outright liars.

Yes, apparently it is that simple. Believe Quakers, or believe self-serving liars? I know who I believe.

And their Middle School just took its second First Place debate trophy in the DC Urban Debate League. I'm not sure it's wise for anyone to face down young people packin' words that big...
