The Whole Shooting Match

 In anticipation of the primary today in the state of Louisiana, the Republican candidates descended on the state like locusts in hopes of showing the citizens that they are one of them so please vote for us.

Leave it to the crowd to act like idiots.

Part of it was that Rick Santorum participated in some sort of firearms competition.  Louisiana has a lot of rural country, so guns are part of life down there.  Still, what with Secret Service details and other security measures, I never really considered the importance of good marksmanship in a Presidential candidate.   But, as my stomach says, I digest.

What makes the situation repugnant was something captured by a live mic while this was going on.  Santorum was lining up his shot, and the mic caught someone in the crowd urge Santorum to hit his target by saying, "Pretend it's Obama!"  I'm sorry, I don't care if it was a joke, that was repugnant.  Remember, I hate Obama more than anybody you know, and even I wouldn't make that kind of statement.

Hope for the future?  Sounds great.  Where do I find it?
