Whenever Wayne LaPierre of the NRA opens his mouth to comment on gun legislation, he is one step closer to self-destruction and he will take the NRA with him.

The TEA Party 3, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, have threatened to filibuster any gun legislation in the US Senate. Together with Michele Bachmann in the House, they will destroy the TEA Party. The question in my mind is will they take the GOP with them? To survive the destruction of the TEA Party, the GOP will require a stronger leader than Reince Priebus.

  1. The only problem is that the public has such a short attention span and is losing interest. I wonder if they will even care about the filibuster. Sorry. Being pessimistic this morning.

  2. Since the GOP is an expression of the fear and distrust that are an unpleasant, but ineradicable part of human nature, I expect it will continue in some form no matter what tactical misbehavior is taken before the press. If it goes down as it is, it will re-emerge under another name. The New Whig Party?

    On the other hand, the NRA couldn’t fall off the face of the Earth a day too soon for me. Blather on, Wayne!
