Following the Barack Obama gaffe over "bitter" Pennsylvanians and their "clinging" to guns, Hillary Clinton just had to prove that she was as "gun toting" as the next gal.
She recounted her childhood when "Pa" Rodham took her out to shoot: "You know, my dad took me out behind the cottage that my grandfather built on a little lake called Lake Winola outside of Scranton and taught me how to shoot when I was a little girl..." There is no indication by Hillary as to what they were shooting back there but, I am assuming that "Pa" made it through the session, "all-rightee"!
One can only guess what a "packin" Hillary could have turned into if she hadn't made it to Yale Law School. Recently, her hubby, Bill, suggested that Hillary actually tried to "enlist" in the Army after graduation. Bill, then, went on to say that she was rejected because her eyesight was really bad. (Not a good thing when you want to shoot at things) Of course, Bill's story, in light of Hillary's Lake Winola experience, now makes a lot of sense. Once you've tasted the "gun" you can't get it out of your blood. Right, Hill? And, God knows, no one has more guns than our military! Really big ones, too! Maybe, that is why she wants to be the Commander-in-Chief. An unfulfilled desire for guns!
I find all too laughable that Hillary now claims she's pro-guns. As a U.S. Senator she's backed every gun control effort in Congress (Click to view Hillary Clinton's record on Gun rights). But, you know that a politician will do anything for the vote. I'll bet she'd publicly "shoot" Bill Clinton if she thought it would buy her some more votes in Pennsylvania. Bill should be careful though! With all that practice as a little girl, she just might shoot him if he keeps bringing up that embarrassing Bosnia airport story one more time "agin"!
