IN MAVERICK'S SIGHTS:

Protesters give McCain best line at NRA gathering (Christi Parsons, 9/20/07, The Swamp)

Anti-war protesters barged into a speech Sen. John McCain was giving at the Capital Hilton this morning, but the interruption ended up giving McCain the high moment of his address to the National Rifle Association.

McCain was right in the middle of talking about the war in Iraq and how he and fellow Republicans are fighting to keep Democrats in Congress from forcing a change in strategy.

Suddenly, a young woman in a t-shirt reading "Troops Home Now" waded into the middle of the gun rights group, shouting "Bring the troops home!" and forcing McCain to stop speaking while she addressed the television cameras.

After a few seconds of camera time, a woman got up from her table at the NRA breakfast, wrapped the protester in an embrace and pushed her out of the limelight. A second protester was also lead out first by NRA members and then by security guards.

As the protesters left the room, McCain leaned into the microphone for the most emphatic thing he said all morning.

"Well, my friends, we beat you yesterday," he said. "We'll beat you today . . . And we'll beat you tomorrow!"

The crowd rose in an enthusiastic standing ovation, setting aside for the moment any past differences they may be holding against McCain.


The Deranged Left is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Sure its ineffective and shrinks what support they may get for their policies, but it certainly fulfills the real purpose of making themselves feel all good and holy for speaking truth to power.

Contrast and compare to the recent farce at that Hanoi John Kerry speech.

It is as though the NRA folks had read on brothersjudd.com how these things should be handled.
