That's the truth

She does know better. And her insistence on running a sleaze campaign is unconscionable.

Flashbacks

This...

"The reason (George H. W. Bush's tactic) works so well now is that you have all these economically insecure white people who are scared to death." - William Jefferson Clinton, 1991

Or this...

"You know, he [Bush] wants to divide us over race. I'm from the South. I understand this. This quota deal they're gonna pull in the next election is the same old scam they've been pulling on us for decade after decade after decade. When their economic policies fail, when the country's coming apart rather than coming together, what do they do? They find the most economically insecure white men and scare the living daylights out of them. They know if they can keep us looking at each other across a racial divide, if I can look at Bobby Rush and think, Bobby wants my job, my promotion, then neither of us can look at George Bush and say, 'What happened to everybody's job? What happened to everybody's income? What ... have ... you ... done ... to ... our ... country?'" - William Jefferson Clinton, 1991

Or...

"If [Republicans] could cut funding for Medicare, Medicaid, education, and the environment, middle-class Americans would see fewer benefits from their tax dollars, feel more resentful paying taxes, and become even more receptive to their appeals for tax cuts and their strategy of waging campaigns on divisive social and cultural issues like abortion, gay rights, and guns." - William Jefferson Clinton, 2004

Pot. Kettle. Black.

You made my morning

Thank you for posting the video. I'm going to be walking around all morning thinking "....like she's Annie Oakley". Between the visual of Hillary Clinton in a duck blind and watching her try to choke down a beer on the news last night, I have all kinds of comedy to choose from.

To Be Fair

Obama may have spoken too soon.

Proof of Hillary Clinton's duck hunting experience has been uncovered.

Here's the video.

No. Please say it ain't so.

watching her try to choke down a beer on the news last night

Just one question. I do not mean to cast dispersions -- well, not in a mean way, anyway -- but are Kerry's folks running her campaign now?

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Kiww da Wabbit

They'd not only put her in a duck blind, they'd have hear wearing one of those Elmer Fudd hats too!

You know what I was always harping on

as to why I liked Edwards? ... the whole "toughness" and "backbone" thing? This video clip made me smile real big. I do like what I am seeing from this Senator from Illinois. Indeed I do.

Yup.

He's definitely my choice.

Yeah - as he gets into it, he smiles, he laughs at it, "It's just somebody politickin'".

No wonder we're seeing new Democrats come out of the walls and from behind the trees.

Woohoo!

It's not just Dems

A couple that my husband and I are friends with are probably the most conservative people we know. We generally keep our mouths shut about politics, just to keep the peace. Well, Saturday my oldest son (3 1/2) had on an Obama sticker. The wife looked at it and said, "you know, I'm really leaning towards voting for him.". My jaw honestly dropped.

They're coming out of...

the duck blinds too!

A weapon

is always loaded and you treat it as such, whether you KNOW it's empty or not, because sometimes you're wrong, even when you know you're right. This kind of "mistake" has happened to almost every gun owner I know. Seriously.

Unloading a semi-automatic weapon: Take the clip out. (the step this guy missed) Then, work the action to eject any round that may be in the chamber. Then, visually confirm there is no round in the chamber. Then, still treat the gun like it's loaded, always pointing it where there are no people. Always.

This is actually a good lesson. Scared the living crap out of those kids. With firearms, that is not a bad thing.

Cheney's Shooting Instructor?

This guy breaks multiple elementary gun safety rules such as the one about not pointing the muzzle at anyone. It appears the "helper" may have handed him a gun with a loaded magazine, but it is also the recipient's responsibility to verify it is cleared. He made it ready to fire(by releasing the slide) right in front of everyone. Then he pulled the trigger. Idiot.

Absolutely.

My dad had very strict rules about firearms. They were always loaded until proven otherwise and if you ever pointed them at someone, even if they were unloaded and had the action open, you were done hunting for the day. If you took a gun out of the cabinet, you checked to make sure it was empty. When you took it out of the truck later, you checked again. And, you never leaned a loaded gun anywhere.

This guy is a blockhead, but it is a good lesson.
