More news from the Dead Elephant party.
Saxby Chambliss to retire. This is both good and bad news. Good because he's another RINO "deal maker" and bad because he can do a lot of damage now that he has no pressure on him to seek re-election -- especially when it comes to a sellout on firearms rights.
Newt Gingrich to Piers Morgan: Lovely gun ‘propaganda’ Yeah, well I remember distinctly a conversation with Gingrich's chief of staff right after they won power in '94, promising us a repeal of the first AWB -- which we never got. Heck, they didn't even try in a serious fashion because Bob Dole didn't want them to.
I remember Gingrich's behavior quite well, he engineered both the passage (on the Republican side) and the blockade of any repeal for the whole time he was speaker.
Then, for the last four years of the ban all we heard (in the whiniest voice you can imagine) was, "well it's going to expire real soon, so we'll just let that happen".
