That's right. You heard it. I said flip-flops. Where be Fox News now?



Quote:
WASHINGTON - Republican Rudy Giuliani sought to reassure the National Rifle Association of his support for a constitutional right to bear arms as rivals Fred Thompson, John McCain and Mike Huckabee contended the former New York mayor is no friend of gun owners.

In a direct appeal Friday to the powerful lobbying group, Thompson, McCain and Huckabee stressed their backing for gun rights and record of siding with the NRA. Giuliani, who once referred to the NRA as "extremists," tried to explain his shifting views on the issue.



The NRA's support is prized as the group blankets its 4 million members with ads, mailings and phone calls. Before the 2008 election, it hopes to increase its numbers.



"I'd like us to respect each other; I think we have very, very legitimate and mostly similar views," Giuliani told NRA members, who clapped politely a dozen times during his 20-minute speech.

Meh. I hope the NRA tells him to go to hell. Little weasel.

The NRA has 4 million members?

That is so scary that I'm going outside to kiss the ground and thank God that I live in Australia.

a walk to canossa isn't so bad since he's not the only one except for Ron Paul. Ron Paul is a solid libertarian, carved out of oak, I seen him wrassle a grizzly bear on PCP once, spared it's life because while he was stuffing it's head up it's own ass he noticed the crying baby bears nearby. He lives in a log cabin made out of the wooden stocks of chinese assault rifles.

So will she be known as President Hilary or will people just stick with the familiar President Clinton?

I can't wait till Hillary gets into the national election and reveals that she's actually an avid hunter.
