Given enough study, I think I managed to make out what that headline was trying to say.

This is a private issue between bedfellows.

The Association for Filthy Hovels has given Stockman a Four (out of four) Putrid Toilet Bowl rating.  So there's that.

I don't know how it is possible to be a bigger tool bag than John Cornyn, but this motherf*cker is making a concerted effort

Is Cornyn the one who recently said he has no idea why anyone would want or need "open carry"? And the NRA endorsed him?

Another data point for the "National Republican Association" trend line.

So he didn't claim the NRA was endorsing him in this election, he listed all of his past and present endorsements together on one list. Dishonest yes, stupid no. He tricks a bunch of people into thinking he was endorsed if it works and claims it's a mistake if he gets caught.

Also that headline was terrible.

Lying sacks of shiat? In my Republican Party? It's unbehoozible.

Well, of course. People in Texas will hear "Stockman endorsed by the NRA!" and won't hear the later corrections (if there are any). It'll be difficult for Cornyn to say "He's not really endorsed by the NRA, I am!" without sounding petulant. Zero downside from Stockman's perspective, and an interesting inversion of Rovian politics.

He's currently calling Cornyn a liberal who voted to prevent the repeal of Obamacare and is Harry Reid's most reliable friend when he needs Republicans to break ranks and vote for radically liberal policies (despite Cornyn ranked the second most conservative Senator by the National Journal's ranking system.) I doubt he's very concerned about reality making a departure from his rhetoric. And a reminder to just who Stockman is...

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/12/the-republican-p ri mary-to-end-all-republican-primaries/282183/

This is actually Stockman's second tour in Congress. His first stint came in 1994, when he was swept in with the Newt Gingrich wave-though once in Congress, he deemed Gingrich insufficiently conservative. The Stockman of the '90s styled himself an ally of the then-flourishing militia movement, winning in an upset by accusing a veteran Democratic congressman of supporting the federal raid on the Branch Davidian cult compound in Waco. Stockman later argued that the Waco raid was a government setup designed to create public sympathy for an assault-weapons ban. "These men, women and children were burned to death because they owned guns that the government did not wish them to have," he wrote, in an essay coincidentally published in Guns & Ammo magazine immediately after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. In 1996, he was defeated by a Democrat.

Stockman's past is littered with curiosities, as Tim Murphy has recounted in Mother Jones. His wayward youth found him charged with a felony for stashing Valium in his underwear; homeless, he spent several months living in a public park. In the 1990s, Stockman found Jesus and began running for Congress. He finally won on his third try, boosted by support from a direct-mail firm seeking revenge (Stockman's opponent had tried to regulate the industry) and a supposedly independent "newspaper," published from Stockman's home address, that called out government officials as "sodomites" and "mean lesbians." In his current term, Stockman has been dogged by campaign-finance violations and accusations he failed to disclose numerous business ties as required. He was one of 10 House Republicans who refused to vote for John Boehner for speaker, citing "bedrock conservative principle."

There's enough NRA to go around.

You literally cannot be stupid enough to never face a stupider primary challenger in the GOP.

Yeah, it's a tough job to make Cornyn appear to be normal, but put him next to Stockman.

English, motherfarker, do you speak it?

What? It should be very easy to either turn that into a punchline, or issue an epic smackdown.

How 'bout this: "I do not know what reality my opponent was living in when he made his claims about the NRA's endorsement- they did not endorse him in this race. My opponent is either confused or a liar, but either way, he is supremely unfit to serve in the United States Senate."

Support gun control bills. The NRA supported "common sense gun control" once, which turned into the gun ban and it burned them severely, so now they fight it rather than nitpicking over what is "Common sense" since what is common sense to one person is retardedly restrictive to someone else.

/Still supports universal background checks provided you make the process itself free, make it mandatory to be done by law enforcement and FFL holders with no impedence, or open up the NICS system for the private citizen to use without any excessive hurdles
//Supports mandatory safety training. In fact, the constitution differentiates between the army/navy and the Militia, and the Militia is defined as all citizens between 18 and 50, so it's perfectly in line to demand the abolishment of the Nat'l Guard and instead require all citizens to maintain a level of functional training as part of the Citizens Militia
///Supports a comprehensive process for reporting on and determining who is mentally ill to prevent them from getting guns.
//Just lost NRA endorsements.

I believe this is the guy pulling down a six-figure salary to do...something, by a corporation that seems to consist of a post office box.

This is coming from the guy who, IIRC, once boasted that a poll showed that 50% of Texans are against Cornyn's re-election, when the poll showed that Cornyn led him 50% to 20%.

How can you be a republican and NOT be endorsed by the NRA?
 
2013-12-20 03:34:19 PM
I almost want Stockman to win, just to see who primaries him from the right in 2020.
 
2013-12-20 06:14:58 PM
Who you gonna believe, Stockman or those gun nuts over at the NRA?

This is akin to deciding which is the worse demon, Moloch or Azazel.
