Joy Reid – described at the link as a “contributor” to MSNBC – thinks that there’s “this sort of neo-Confederate thread that runs through this pro-gun movement and NRA movement”.
Huh. I wonder where all those confederates in Northern Colorado came from.
And I have to say I am abashed to learn that all those Pacos who died fighting in the Civil War on the side that came in second were done in by a bunch of bluecoats carrying, apparently, nothing but barrel staves and pocket knives.
Update: Rinardman, in the comments - "I think there's this sort of neo-idiocy thread that runs through this MSNBC movement."
