We extend our sincere sympathies toward his family.
Having said that, fuck Rep. Steve Scalise.
The Congressman, who is so dim as to have once “accidentally” attended a Klan rally, receives an A+ rating from the NRA. He most certainly will be [could have been] counted on to help pass the latest Congressional piece of shit, the Hearing Protection Act of 2017, which –despite your first and obvious thought– is NOT about hearing aids, but rather will relax restrictions on firearm silencers.
That’s right, Scalise has consistently enabled legislation making it easier for whatever asshole shot (and possibly killed 1) him today to go out and purchase whatever weapon tickled his fancy. We would say that Eiron is chortling even now, but the sad truth is that America has long ago moved past irony regarding its lunatic love affair with guns.
Again, we feel for Scalise’s family but can not help but wonder if his wife is having a Clytemnestra moment.
“By the sword you did your work, and by the sword you die.”
Yep – fuck Steve Scalise.
