http://www.nydailynews.com/news/pol...after_sarah_palin_and_rush_limbaugh_supp.html This was an important Republican seat that had been held by Republicans for generations. The NRA backed the Republican. Then came the nutjobs, who drove her out of the race. Now it's held by a Democrat. Thanks, Sarah. Thanks, Rush. Thanks, Glenn. This is why we traditional pro-gun conservatives shake our heads when we see goofballs like Palin, Beck, and Limbaugh out front. Being goofy hurts our cause. Being hysterical hurts our cause. Distorting the facts hurts our cause. Engaging in hyperbole hurts our cause. Racist comments on this site hurt our cause. Wailing about a communist takeover of the US hurts our cause. Shreiking that Obama hates America hurts our cause. If your goal is just to scream with rage just to get it all out of your system, go for it. But if you think you are helping to protect my gun rights, you are wrong.
