What with RedState.com being disappointed with the 'R' in NRA not standing for Republican, and the usual George Will stuff against guns, and even Jonah Goldberg of National Review ratcheting up his Metrocon creds... (et tu Jonah? What will the Couch think?)
It's all leading up to how the NRA will be thrown under the bus when the GOP regains power in 2010 and 2012. President Pawlenty will probably nominate some hoplophobe to SCOTUS in 2013 to replace Kennedy and veto a buncha pro-gun-rights Bills for 'public safety rights' reasons. Just to punish the NRA for it's supposed thought crimes and for being a good single issue org and not being Republican. The squishes in the Republican party are even now building the foundation, brick by brick, for such perfidy.
THEY'RE ALL AGIN US!

Perhaps I, too, should re-examine before flying off the handles. But look, generally, respecting the 2nd Amendment is a conservative value. The Republican party is generally a conservative party. That is the only reason why the GOP and NRA often dovetail. When it comes to base power-seeking political sausage making where the purpose goes beyond principal then the 2 groups can and do diverge. All is well as long as the GOP doesn't fantasize that the NRA (and most other gun rights groups) is something more than it is.
That ticket wouldn't nominate a 2nd Amendment squish to the Supreme Court.
