OK, so I voted for a Democrat in the elections last month – it was Joe Manchin for Senator from West Virginia. He was good on guns and Cap & Trade – it took me several minutes to decide what to do when I voted for him, but I did it, mostly because he introduced the Federal CCW bill in the Senate. But, it only took me a month to regret it. According to the Washington Post, he cracked this weekend on guns with the most vacuous line from the anti-gun fascists;
“I dont know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle,” Manchin told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” ”I don’t know anyone that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. I mean, these are things that need to be talked about.”
I don’t need 30 rounds to go hunting. In fact I don’t hunt anymore, but I own more guns that I’ve ever owned. But I just ordered some more high-capacity magazines this weekend, because I want to – no other reason. So Manchin was the first Democrat who I’ve voted for since Jimmy Carter, and it looks like he’s the last one, too.
