"Theres no such thing as bad publicity"

As an Iowan I worry about the amount of coverage this women is getting.  She's even got Palin endorsing her now.  That probably wouldnt have happened if the media hadnt picked up on the pig castration comment and gave it so much exposure.

Exposing her derp isnt having the effect the left thought it would have.  Poe's law could get this woman elected as a US senator.

Imagine if Obama had done a commercial where he shot The Communist Manifesto.

The GOP would go full commie in a week.

Sharron Angle, Christine O Donnell, Richard Mourdock, Todd Akin.

We will note your concern and take our chances.

Only if she can outspend Braley by a ratio of at least 5:1, or if nobody comes out to vote. She probably would have been better off challenging Steve King's safe red House seat instead of trying to win an entire purple state. Hell, they couldn't even fill the banquet room when Palin was here.

I'm pretty sure she deployed as commander of a transportation company when Iraq started.

This is like one of those sexy lady-cops from an 80s crime drama.  I'm looking forward to the episode where she goes undercover as a stripper like Dee Dee McCall or Stacy from TJ Hooker were doing about 8 times a season.


This week on TJ Hooker:

Ok, so in today's GOP news we have FOX wanting meteorologists to ask about Benghazi, pig castrating gun nut lady running for office on promises to shoot laws, and RAND PAUL lying about Obamacare.

Here's what I can't figure out: all of those people will see a bump in popularity as a result of this behavior.

This is the state of the modern Republican Party.

The amount of bullets fired at 14-pt print-outs of "Obamacare" for the the latest campaign ads would've been able to let a rebel force overthrow a govt of a small country. It's nuts. They are trying to prove how conservative they are. Out-derping one another. I'm waiting for someone to shoot a mortar round at the damn thing in this game of one-ups-manship.
 
2014-05-06 01:03:17 PM  
I'm curious what specifically she expects to do about the ACA that hasn't already been attempted 41 times.

/besides shoot at it

She was noted to remark before the video shoot, "Does it kick?"

So am I.  If am shooting using my left eye, the gun is in the left hand and vice versa.
The way she's doing, she's going to put somebody's eye out, but not the one she thought she was aiming at.

/jeez, i thought wingers would at least be able to shoot?!

Lowering the expectations of the American public again.  Absolutely no substance in there anywhere.  Also, exploiting her reserve rank for political purposes?  Disgraceful.

Um yeah, when I served I was told it was a no-no to use your military status for personal gain. As in, you could be demoted or face other UCMJ actions for it. Chances are she retired from the Guard though.
 
2014-05-06 01:40:58 PM  
Meh - it's a Republican primary candidate.  I already expect them to be batshiat insane.
 
2014-05-06 01:46:26 PM  
So, her bona fides for elected office are castrating hogs and shooting cockeyed.

Well, that convinces me

Those nicely bent elbows say, "I really want this gun's recoil to smash me right in my stupid face."

Seriously, gun nuts... LEARN TO USE THE THINGS YOU WORSHIP.
 
2014-05-06 02:25:12 PM  
So from this ad I take away;


she is a farm girl
she is a mom
she is a Lt. Colonel who carries more in her purse than lipstick (that's not sexist or anything)
she plans to stop 'Obama care'

None of these things qualify someone to govern, and only one of them is an actual goal.

This is how I was raised, too.  I got into a heated discussion about this with a retired infantryman, now attorney.  He was of the opinion that this was a freedom of speech issue and no speech is as free as political speech.  Beyond the "personal gain" issue, my problem is the implicit approval by the U.S. military for a specific candidate.  On that path lies some very ugly stuff, and the military has been right to avoid endorsing candidates.  The military works for the President, and is funded by Congress.  If the military starts picking winners in the democratic process, we're no better than a South American "junta of the month" club.

Cross eye dominance isn't uncommon, but not very unusual.  Any good firearms instructor will test eye dominance while working with a student.  I'm cross eye dominant myself, so I work better with students that have the same issue.  She should keep both eyes open though, she's closing both eyes during the recoil stroke, her support hand positioning is terrible and she has a pretty wicked anticipation jerk going on.  She could use some lessons.

Elbow locked techniques started to lose popularity years ago mostly due to the rise in soft body armor which makes it real had to lock your elbows.  It's still popular in competitive shooting circles though.  It's really a personal comfort thing.  If you hit yourself in the face with the recoil of a 9mm handgun you have bigger issues than your elbows.

Nope, she's still a battalion commander. That's why her (blindingly obvious) party affiliation doesn't appear in the commercials.

Speaking only for myself - it seems like she's crossed the line more than a few times (especially making derogatory references to the ACA using her commander-in-chief's name). But I'm not the Public Affairs Officer or Adjutant General.

You know, at the rate that republicans are trying outdo each other on how violently and aggressively they will do stuff to Obamacare, I'm waiting for someone to go next-level crazy with one of these ads.

I want a candidate to lrun an ad where he or she literally pisses and/or shiats on Obamacare.  If it's a piss ad, I also expect you to be waving a small flag and humming a patriotic song of your choice.  If it's a poop ad, I expect you to show yourself wiping with either Mao's little red book, or a copy of Dreams from My Father.

My brother is right-handed and left-eye dominant. It was much easier for him to learn to shoot left-handed, than to awkwardly contort his head at a bizarre angle, like Dirty Harriet over here.

Sgt Otter: My brother is right-handed and left-eye dominant. It was much easier for him to learn to shoot left-handed...,


If you catch them at the very start and train them to shoot left handed the whole time, absolutely.  Unfortunately most people learn to shoot from a buddy, on their own or from some other source that doesn't do an eye dominance test right off the bat.  Those people it's generally easier to teach adaptive techniques than to teach to shoot all over again.

Sgt Otter: ...than to awkwardly contort his head at a bizarre angle, like Dirty Harriet over here.

That's by far not the only thing she's doing wrong.  I mean seriously, get the web of your hand up under the beaver tail lady.  Maybe you'll get the muzzle flip under control better if you do.

You would think that a savvy political campaign would have brought in a shooting coach so she wouldn't look like an idiot.
