The Messiah and his followers have produced a lot of sound and fury of late, but it has signified almost nothing - the "stimulus" has had no effect (except to put us more in debt to the Chinese), nationalized health care is tanking, cap-n-tax may not have the votes, and the Europeans aren't loving the US like he hoped.
Yes, Obama just got a "wise Latina" on the Supreme Court (speaking of "racism"...), but let's be honest - the Faithful want more. If things continue as they have for Team Hopenchange, do not be surprised if they soon roll out an old, red-meat standby: "common-sense gun control".
Yes, "gun control" is a net loser for Democrats, but other things Obama thought would be net gainers - such as nationalizing health care, kissing Iran's butt - haven't been. So going after guns wouldn't rile up the conservatives much more than they are now, would fire up the Lefty base, and would distract from Obama's current troubles by giving his cheerleaders in the press something else to focus on.
I hope I'm wrong. But in case I'm not, order your AR or AK now. Avoid the rush.
UPDATE 29JULY09: Looks like they are first going to play the race card.
