This past weekend, the National Rifle Association held its annual convention in Houston, Texas. Around 70,000, pro-gun supporters turned out to see speakers like Bobby Jindal, Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin spread second amendment gospel.

But there was also tons of shopping. Gun owners always be shopping! A large part of the convention was taken up with gun shops shilling their wares to an uber-devoted customer base. And because this is America, land of opportunity, gun companies have begun pandering to a heretofore largely ignored population — female gun owners and supporters. In NRA terms, this means producing a bunch of pleasantly pink guns, accessories and clothing to show support for guns. The conference took place just one day after a man shot off an AR-15 rifle inside the Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport, in a thwarted suicide attempt (he was later killed by security). Glenn Beck told an audience at the NRA Convention that the man’s death was a set up by the progressive left. And it also took place on the 43rd anniversary of the Kent State Massacre, in which four unarmed students were killed and dozens maimed by the Ohio National Guard. Keep reading »

CPAC Is Wack: 9 Things That Made Us Go “Huh”?

Sarah Palin Big Gulp

This weekend was the Conservative Political Action Conference, an uber-conservative political event where all kinds of crazy shit goes down each year. It was sad because some of these people are absolutely batcrackers crazers. Like, my dad is a Fox News-loving, Bush-voting Republican and he is embarrassed by these people. But at the same time it was delightful because all weekend my Twitter was blowing up with “Oh my God, Sarah Palin said what?!” incredulity. And I do love a good Twitter kerfluffle.

So here are some highlights — and feel free to add others in the comments. Keep reading »

  • Sarah Palin has somehow  gotten another book deal, this time pandering to the tiny amount of people who do not understand that one of America’s founding principles is freedom of religion. A Happy Holiday IS A Merry Christmas, which is out this November, will be a defense of “our faith” and rant about the “politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas.” Is she still a thing?  [U.S. News & World Reports]

10 Untimely Pop Culture Halloween Costumes

I only recently discovered the amazing phenomenon that is “Friday Night Lights,” and more specifically, the glorious perfection that is Connie Briton as Tami Taylor. I told Amelia I wanted to be Tami Taylor for Halloween and hopefully win some kind of costume party prize for Least Timely Pop Culture Reference, but then Amelia threatened to dress up as Amelie and steal my crown. Bitch. Anyway, just in case you’re looking for a costume idea that’s neither current (like these internet obsessions) or cheekily retro, but instead falls awkwardly into the pop culture gulch of the past few years, well, click through for some delightfully outdated ideas…

“I’m certainly not doing it for the money, no! … Our family’s mantra is to live life vibrantly.”

– This is Sarah Palin‘s response to questions about her family’s embrace of television, which, if you are keeping count, started with “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” moved on to “Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp,” and will soon include Todd Palin in a new game show called “Stars Earn Stripes.” It’s all about living life vibrantly, everyone!
