NRA Rallies Around Coke Dealer – Will Republicans Follow?

Well, it took them long enough, but the National Rifle Association (NRA) has trotted out their ultimate weapon:

… the NRA said it would consider senators’ votes on Sotomayor when evaluating candidates in future.

In other words, a vote for Sonia Sotomayor is a vote against the Second Amendment, the NRA, and possibly apple pie.

In a letter to the Senate leadership, NRA officials said they were “disturbed” by Sotomayor, in part because of her vote:

… to uphold the drug-distribution conviction of an illegal alien found with 1.2 kilos of cocaine base and a pistol.

Hey, it’s no tattered flag, but why shouldn’t Senate Republicans rally around an undocumented immigrant who was packing heat while peddling 1200 grams of blow? It will be a nice change of pace from defending their latest C Street colleague.
