Oh, please. Like I even need to finish the punch line.
But some of you have been under rocks for a while (vide Governor
Messinger’s Flint Smith’s Dayton’s re-election). So for your benefit:
“Their lips are moving, and/or their fingers are typing something”.
To wit: Moms Want Action sent out a post-election thank-you to their supporters (and quite a few Real Americans who get their updates as well):
Many thanks to those of you who made hundreds of phone calls in support of Sen Al Franken. His re-election means that both of our US senators are lawmakers who support gun-sense legislation. Gun violence prevention was not a major campaign theme for any federal candidate, [And why do you suppose that is? – Ed.] although a few did mention it. Notably, US. Rep. Betty McCollum’s campaign materials called it out, and state attorney general candidate Andy Dawkins of the Green Party did, too (McCollum won re-election; Dawkins failed to unseat Lori Swanson)
Side note: Betty McCollum runs in a district that would elect a wheelbarrow full of manure to Congress, if the DFL endorsed it.
And what Moms Want Action failed to tell you is that while Lori Swanson may be an interventionist, activist who’s continued her predecessor and mentor Mike Hatch’s policies on nattering away at private business, she is one of the better state AGs in the country on gun rights. So the Moms would be more honest to say that the pro-gun candidate utterly destroyed the only AG candidate who explicitly mentioned support for gun control and the Bloomberg Oompa-Loompas.
But here’s the big one. I’m bolding it for emphasis:
All of Everytown’s endorsed candidates in Minnesota won re-election. Yay!
Oh, did they?
Follow the link to Everytown’s extraordinarily badly-designed site. Look for “Filter by State”, and select “Minnesota”.
Do you see Will Morgan? “Moms Want Action”/”Everytown” offered him endorsement; the then-incumbent was arrogant enough to figure he didn’t need the votes of pro-2nd-Amendment Real Americans to win in District 56B.
And Roz Peterson absolutely brutalized him with an eight point upset win.
So what is it we say, again?
“If a gun-grabber group says it, it’s probably a lie”.
Pass the word.
