    NRA announced today it will not endorse Senate Majority Leader Harry Re

    After careful consideration, the NRA-PVF announced today that it will not be endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for re-election in the 2010 U.S. Senate race in Nevada.

    I'm not a fan of Sharron Angle, but I'm less a fan of Reid. I hate "lesser of two evils" elections.

    I'm more excited to vote for Sharron Angle than anyone else I've voted for thus far. Has there ever been an election that wasn't a "lesser of two evils" election? If anyone else won the Republican Primary I'd see it as even more of a race between the lesser of two evils. I think she actually might be a small-government Republican, and her views on guns are fantastic. I don't think any of the other Republicans that ran in the primary could be classified as small-government Republicans. Some of the other Republicans claimed to support Republican ideals but only were willing to say so in vague terms and were too afraid to alienate themselves by actually voicing any opinion that can be criticized that you can't even tell where they stand. I don't like voting for candidates that you can't even distinguish one from another except for whatever typically misleading and trivial scandals they accuse each other of.

    There are some things about her I don't like, such as her support of the religious right, but I think she is a much lesser evil than Reid, and the best candidate from the possibilities to oppose Reid.

    I actually wish a lot of the statements made by Reid about Angle's position were more true. She's watered down some of her ideas, or at least has become less explicit about them, and is not making as strong of a claim to reduce the size of the Federal government as I'd like her to. I'd like to see as many federal agencies and programs as possible be exterminated.

    But, there is always a lesser. Good for the NRA. Time for that pos to go.

    Well, I went ahead and found the actual announcement. I am surprised they even went this far. Good for them, I guess, maybe, on the other hand.

    Reid may have voted the right way on 2A, but the wrong way on everything else. Don't let the door hit him in the ass on his way out after packing his office next Jan.

    That Reid press release is political spin in action. It quotes specific statements without introducing ANY context for them.

    That's because if they (the Reid campaign) told you the whole story, in context, then you would know that they are lying to you. Would we expect anything less?
