I found this particularly amusing:
Senator Hillary Clinton’s mailing attacking Senator Barack Obama’s record on guns appears to include a striking visual gaffe: The image of the gun pictured on the face of the mailing is reversed, making it a non-existent left-handed model of the Mauser 66 rifle.
To make matters worse, a prominent gun dealer said, it’s an expensive German gun with customized features that make it clearly European.
“The gun in the photo does not exist,” said Val Forgett III, the president of Navy Arms in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Forgett’s company was Mauser’s agent in the United States when the gun was released, and who sold Mauser guns here again in the 1990s. “The bolt is facing to the left side of the receiver, making it a left-handed bolt action rifle, indicating whoever constructed and approved the mailer did not recognize the image has been reversed.”
Forgett said the error would be obvious to sportsmen.
“I find it laughable on its face,” he said. “It’s like a picture of Babe Ruth hitting right-handed.”***
“It’s a $2,200 German import – it’s hardly typical of what the average workingman in Indiana uses,” he said.
In defense of the Clinton campaign, they probably had just knocked back some boilermakers at the bowling alley after a long day in the mill or at the mine, and this is the kind of mistake you can make after a few beers and shots of whiskey and a tough day of hard labor.
The best thing about this is going to be reading the pro-Hillary websites explain this away and that the point remains about Hillary’s long tradition of pro-gun support. Hell, only an ELITIST would even notice something like this anyway, AMIRITE? Not to mention, we all know what Hillary thinks of experts, so why would she care what gun experts think, anyway? She is ready on day one, and she is a fighter, and that is all that really matters! Facts are for pansies!
I am now going to offer some unsolicited advice to the smartest woman in America and her joke of a campaign- stop trying to out-Republican the Republicans. They are better at it than you are, as they are actually Republicans.
*** Update ***
One other question- why did the smartest woman in America decide to throw away four decades of Democratic street-cred to run as a Republican-lite in the year that a Republican President is polling just above the crazification factor?
