So the National Rifle Association won’t endorse Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for re-election this fall (they apparently won’t endorse his Republican challenger, Sharron Angle, either). It is notable that Reid’s efforts to confirm Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, rather than his numerous anti-gun votes, are being cited as the reason. When I wrote about this and other controversies within the NRA for the September print issue, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America — a rival Second Amendment group — told me that even if Reid didn’t get the NRA endorsement, the damage had already been done.
“I don’t know if he needs a piece of paper saying, ‘We hereby officially endorse you,’” Pratt said. “They’ve already said more than enough that Reid could send out in targeted mailings to gun owners if he wanted to.” An example? Wayne LaPierre at the Clark County Shooting Park ribbon cutting: “I also want to thank you, Senator, for your support every day for the Second Amendment and for the rights of American gun owners.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
