Well, if John Hinkley had been better trained, Sarah Brady's husband
wouldn't have been shot and she might be sitting in front of the TV
eating Doritos. And, gosh, come to think of it, all sorts of other
things would be different, I guess. Put together an ad campaign based
on this and let's see who we can persuade to rally around!
Or maybe we could just eliminate all crime victims and their families
from the debate. Why let people speak who are obviously not neutral?
As for Schumer, you not only got his name wrong but (as one of his
constituents) I think you also misstate his place on the political
spectrum. Saying that either of our Senators is fringy and unpopular is
wishful thinking. I don't see either of their seats as vulnerable, nor
do I think either of them is any "fringier" than a good many right-wing
Of course, in a land where the media follow the loudest empty wagons,
saying something often enough eventually makes it real.
