If their paranoia wasn't so sickening, it would at least be entertaining

Well this weekend we found that the NRA has one more thing in common with Richard Nixon, an enemies list.

And like Tricky Dick it is rather top-heavy with Jewish groups and African-Americans. Among the hundreds of groups and individuals named are the AARP, American Academy of Pediatrics, the Anti-Defamation League, Black Mental Health Alliance, B`nai B`rith, the Central Conference of American Rabbis. And that just takes us into the Cs.

 Oh, and Tara Lipinski, Olympic Gold Medal winning figure skater; Barry Mannilow and of course, The Temptations.

Yeah, this is an organization whose leadership is taken seriously.

For a mere $35, the NRA already offers membership premiums like:

•Official NRA members-only Shooter’s cap
•Your choice of monthly NRA magazines
•Membership card and decal
•Insurance for you and your guns
•Invitations to “Friends of NRA” dinners, other special events and more…

If they could offer an honorary mention on their Enemies List, I just might spring for it. They could keep the other premiums, too.

True, a Wingnut without his Boogieman is a sad little Wingnut indeed.

But having a list of Boogiemen this long does seem a little... ehm... how do I say this? ... f@#$%^ nutso?

Perhaps even to the point where fellow Wingnuts may begin to point and laugh?

Nah, as if that would ever happen!
