Senator Craig and the NRA

Let’s give the NRA some credit--it’s been in less of a hurry to dump Senator Larry Craig, an NRA board member, than the Republican Party was. Maybe it’s not as worried about its future as the Republican Party is. Maybe it’s a little more composed than the Republican Party, and can see a foot nudge and a hand wandering under a bathroom stall for what they are--such trivial behavior that not even the NRA would argue decent Americans need to bear arms to protect themselves against it. Maybe the NRA recoils from a bully with a badge manipulating a guy terrified of public exposure in a way the Republican Party doesn’t.

Anyway, here’s a backhanded tribute to the NRA from gay blogger Michael Petrelis. And here’s Larry Craig last year in much happier times.
