“We’re children. You guys are the adults.”

gunsWe do try (not that hard, admittedly) to avoid politics here at Bureaublog, but when things go completely out of control, it’s hard to stay quiet. Today in the Times there was an astounding¬†double-page ad that listed every member of Congress taking money from the NRA and how much they took. Yes, some of the¬†worst, truly despicable monsters were getting millions. But most were not. Most got less than $40,000. A few got practically nothing. Somebody got $1000. Is money so hard to raise that you will sell your soul for $1000? That seems about right for most of the souls in Congress. Maybe even somewhat high. But for amounts like that, our elected officials choose to do the bidding of an unspeakably evil organization that stops even the smallest attempt at gun control sanity. This is disgusting. Truly disgusting. Not as disgusting, of course, as what you’ll find if you click on the photo (from the Times). You’ll go to an op-ed Times piece from October where you’ll see career totals of how much the “top ten” each got from the NRA. Prepare to be sick.
