The Manchester Republican Party is planning a August 5th party fundraiser at the Pelham, New Hampshire firing range.
Party faithful will get to blast away with Uzis, M-16 rifles and other automatic weapons.
Jerry Thibodeau, the committee chairman, told the Union Leader newspaper, "The thought just struck me one day: a machine gun shoot. What the heck?"
A machine gun shoot?
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
Calling all Independents! Come back into the Republican fold and fire a automatic weapon in Pelham!
Just please try and disregard the Democratic operatives armed with telephoto lenses whose '08 general election direct mail campaigns you will make. Also, please disregard the bad earned media and their "liberal bias".
Noted: GreenMountainPolitics1 has been bow hunting. And we like it. This isn't a anti-Second Amendment post.
What we are saying is that the Manchester GOP is politically tone deaf. Damaging the candidacies of Mayor Guinta and, to a lesser extent, Senator Sununu.
Noted: There is a reason that all(!) the GOP Presidential candidates turned down the Manchester Republican's invitation to come out and shoot guns.
We expect that Guinta and Sununu are probably on the phone with Jerry Thibodeau right now. Sorting it all out.
