Patterico's Pontifications


Colorado Seeks to Ban Popular Shotguns

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:26 am

Joe Biden would be appalled:

A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol.

A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign.

“They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd.

How can you fire it through your front door if it’s banned??

Gene “You’ll Regret This” Sperling on Meet the Press

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:18 am

David Gregory interviews Sperling, puts videotape in his face of Obama saying (in a debate) that he didn’t propose the sequester. Gregory says “that’s not accurate.” (Now they tell us!) Sperling is then asked whether the President was right or wrong.

Of course he says he was right.

Gregory’s gonna regret this.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and her legions of sock puppets

Socking, socking I tell you.

Rachel Maddow and Teh Gleeeeeeeeeens would be great friends.

I would be surprised if this wasn’t the case for many in the media, but it is especially funny when such a smug sanctimonious pompous holier-than-thou talking head gets exposed.


Dem Politico Cracks Joke About Trouser Snake … To a 17 Year Old Girl

Filed under: General — JD @ 8:14 am

[Guest post by JD]

Connecticut state Rep. Ernest Hewett (D) made an inappropriate remark to a 17 year old girl testifying about a program that helped her overcome her shyness and get over her fear of snakes, the New London Day reports.

Said the girl: “I am usually a very shy person, and now I am more outgoing. I was able to teach those children about certain things like snakes that we have and the turtles that we have… I want to do something toward that, working with children when I get older.”

According to an audiotape of the hearing, Hewett replied: “If you’re bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here.”

And then followed it up with this …

Connecticut state Rep. Ernest Hewett (D) refused to resign after making a lewd remark to a teenage girl at a legislative hearing and denied he has a problem with women, the Hartford Courant reports.

Said Hewett: “I purposely will not have female interns. My intern now is a male. I want to keep it like that. I’ve had female interns in the past that sit in my office all day. I thought it was totally weird and I didn’t want another. As a matter of fact, I went four, maybe six years without having an intern at all because of stuff like that. I have a male intern, the last two I’ve had were male.”

He added: “I don’t get to choose. That’s why I was so leery about staying away from interns. I don’t know what they’re going to give me. They may give me a female, but I don’t want a female intern. That may sound sexist but I really don’t. That way that keeps me good and that keeps everybody else good.”

War on women.

Can you imagine the outcry … Never mind.


UPDATE BY PATTERICO: Here’s the audio. I hate to say this, but . . . he may have been talking about an actual snake, in a very very clueless manner.

After all, she was talking about her participation at a science center, and she specifically mentioned that she shows snakes to children.

It’s still pretty odd, and I wouldn’t want this guy addressing my daughter, but . . . maybe it was innocently intended. Maybe.

Want To Get Arrested? Listen To Joe Biden

Filed under: General — JD @ 7:49 am

[guest post by JD]

Apparently Joe Biden learned everything he knows about firearms by watching bad movies.

First, he regaled us with tales of how an AR15 is harder to shoot than a shotgun, harder to aim, and then suggested that his wife go on the balcony and fire two blasts into the air should she feel threatened. Now we have him suggesting to fire blasts through your front door.

” We can argue whether that’s true or not …”. That quote from Biden particularly amused me. He asserted his position as fact, and only later acknowledged that there is obvious disagreement with his baseless assertions. We can argue about whether that’s true, because it is not.

The YouTube video at the link is hysterical, it is a compilation of a few videos I actually linked to here, previously. Good stuff.


UPDATE BY PATTERICO: Here’s the video:

Stupidity On Teh Twitter – Tourè and Brazile

Filed under: General — JD @ 7:35 am

[Guest post by JD]

Though there are undoubtedly other examples of leftist stupidity out there, these two have megaphones. I cannot figure out which one is actually worse.

Touré ✔ @Toure

What would be Wayne LaPierre’s advice for a woman facing an angry husband who’s pointing a gun at her? What stops a mad good guy with a gun?
2:56 PM – 02 Mar 13

Or …

Donna Brazile ✔ @donnabrazile

What’s on your menu? Just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer!
2:50 PM – 27 Feb 13

Tourè – good men don’t point loaded guns at their wife. Your vapid nonsense plays well on MSNBC, but outside that cesspool, not so much. People with one name, and have proven to be aggressively stupid, should not be trusted with any object sharper than a nerfball.

Brazile might be worse, because someone the MFM uses as a spokesperson for leftist causes, as well as predictably playing the race and gender cards indiscriminately, apparently she does not know that her health care provider has nothing to do with her health insurance premiums, nor why her beloved BarckyCare is jacking up premiums nationwide.
