Here is the Thing:
The Huffington Post (I remember when Arianna was the darling of the Conservative movement in the mid-'90s; Paul Weyrich would have her on his cable network all the time.) proclaims in the web version of Second Coming Type:
Rand Paul Backs Gun Campaign Featuring Image Of Rifle Pointing At Obama's Head...and here is the ad:
Here was my Facebook rantlet:
Really, now. This is such a ridiculous stretch; it is not worthy even of HuffPo. It's like they said "Ooooh, we need to be more like Coast to Coast AM!"
LOOK AT THE PICTURE! (The picture with the gun...)
The rifle is limned in light, separating it from the rest of the advert. Look at its size relative to Paul or O'bama. It is tiny. It is a G.I Joe gun, back when Joe was able to take Barbie to the Prom (I'm not sure if that is innuendo....) A Red Ryder would do far more damage...but WAIT! It must be behind Rand Paul or Our President, on the back wall, as it were.
This is the kicker: layout wise, the rifle naturally draws your eye...where? Look at it again.Yes. Unless your brain was featured on "Will It Blend", your eye is led straight toBarack Hussein Obama's phiz.It's a narcissist's dream!
The word "desperation" comes to mind. That or "See if THIS mud sticks...." Or "slow news day". This is journalism a 12-year-old would do. Given the tendency toward name-calling from the Left, I may have swerved into A Truth.Happy Mothers Day! We've all had one (except maybe Georgio Tsoukalos).
