Bill Clinton on the Second Amendment

Via Instapundit via Snowflake via Huffingtion Post comes this Brady Bunch-inspired observation from the former Fornicator-in-Chief:

That's essentially what is different [about today's new political culture], and what creates this great moment of opportunity - not just to bring the economy back, but to pass comprehensive health care reform, to be a renewed force of peace around the world - to do a lot of things that make sense - and to have conversations with people, instead of screaming matches over things like what former Mayor Helmke works on so much, over what is the best way to keep the American people safe. Nobody wants to repeal the Second Amendment, and nobody wants to keep you out of the deer woods, but wouldn't it be nice if your children didn't have to worry about being mowed down by an assault weapon when they turn the corner?

Read the whole thing for its insights (intentional and otherwise) on what Bubba calls "a dueling communitarianism" between the Republicans and the Democrats.

An especially-virulent pox on Bill and the lot of them.

Sic semper tyrannis.

wild Willy looks forward to:

"a dueling communitarianism. That is, "my way of bringing us together is better than your way of bringing us together." One can be a little to the right of center, one can be a little to the left of center. But we will not go forward anymore, I don't think, with the kind of politics of division and destruction that drug us down for too long."

Ah yes, the left and the right join hands in the so-called center, in a dueling communism - oops, I mean communitarianism, where they compete for ways to run the collective hive.

A pox on both their houses, and to hell with both.

I'd rather see an economic collapse that wipes it all away so we can start the fuck over.

And note this from Helmke:

"over 80% of Americans do agree that we should require Brady criminal background checks for every gun purchase, and about two-thirds favor restricting access to military-style assault weapons."

He just won't stop. That is their mantra, and they won't ever stop.

And here is Helke praising Steele, of course:

"Surprisingly, this new political culture could see similar competition within the Republican Party, as well. Last Friday, the Republican National Committee chose Michael Steele as Chair of the RNC, and showed that guns weren't a wedge issue even in an intramural Republican election. At a candidate's debate at the National Press Club last month (which I attended), while the other candidates fell over themselves to describe their gun collections and shooting prowess, Steele stated distinctly and without qualification, that he owns no guns. This was on top of statements Steele made in 2006 about his stance on restricting access to assault weapons that inflamed the gun community. Meanwhile, Ken Blackwell, a member of the National Rifle Association Board of Directors, came in last place every ballot he appeared on. If the gun issue didn't act as a wedge issue to divide voters in an RNC election, no wonder it failed to divide voters nationwide last November."

The two-headed beast is upon us - with one head of an elephant, and the other of a donkey.

You really, really need a separate post on just how in love Helke is with Steele - and how they are interchangeable. It may as well be Helke who runs the GOP.
