Well, this is stupid-did CJ Lotz (the author) even watch that segment on The Rachel Maddow Show last night?? Maddow’s point wasn’t to say that the ad was true, it was that political pressure from this Super PAC was effective in getting Halvorson to distance herself from the NRA. Given that she has anArating (not easy) and previously previously vocalized her support for them, this is significant. And it’s significant not just because of her own pivot, but because it demonstrates that the NRA no longer hasachokehold on gun politics-but in fact, there are people making moves on the other side. But instead you let Halvorson obfuscate the issue, victimize herself, and make Maddow out to be the bully. Well played.
