Dems Make Political Hay out of Giffords' Shooting Tragedy, introduce New Gun Control

Juxtapose these two recent news items and you have Republicans and Democrats in a nutshell.

Hours after the senseless shooting of Democrat Congresswoman Giffords, brand new Republican House Speaker of the House John Boenher postponed indefinitely the planned vote to repeal Obamacare, originally set for Wednesday, January 12th. A generous well-meaning gesture to reach across the aisle at a time of national tragedy by a noble, teary-eyed sap, I’m afraid.
As the hoary saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished.
Politico reports that liberal Democrat Carolyn McCarthy plans to promptly introduce new gun control legislation tomorrow (Monday) morning to capitalize on the Arizona massacre.

If Republicans inhibit McCarthy’s bill in any way whatsoever, you can bet your underwater mortgage the Make-Believe Media will scream vitriolic hyperbole all the while claiming that the laws we already have obviously weren’t enough to stop leftist pot-head Jared Loughner’s sick assassination plot. It won’t matter that at point blank range he could have dispatched the congresswoman more effectively with a good sharp kitchen knife.

2011 Rose Parade Govenor's Award Winning Float depicting Life in California Breaks Down, needs Tow

You can’t make this stuff up. The Rose Parade’s “Governor’s Award”-- for the float best depicting “life in California” -- could’ve been renamed the “Irony Award.” The winner, “Suenos de California” (Dreams of California) by the City of Sierra Madre, suffered an humiliating breakdown at the start of the parade and was unceremoniously towed the remainder of the course. What a perfect representation of once the Golden State’s current financial woes. California Dreamin’ it wasn’t.

And until 2012, when the state’s gerry-mandered electoral districts get a Pelosi-style facelift, there’s little hope for a solution that can tow California’s broken down economy out of its Democrat Ditch.
