Brady Campaign's quest for relevance
After flip-flopping on health care, Michigan congressman Bart Stupak has decided not to run for re-election. Whereupon Brady Campaign gives him rather belated praise for having, ten years ago, cosponsored its failed proposal for background checks on private sales. And has to admit he didn't cosponsor their proposal since, but they hope he would have done so had he not stepped down.
Egad. Not so long ago, Brady was pushing background checks, "assault gun" bans, checks for private sales, and whatnot. Today they're hassling Starbucks (without result) and seeking publicity for praising a political has-been for something he did ten years ago. Which failed.
Does anyone sell relevance on Ebay?
