Rachel Maddow at NRA Convention

by Accidental Bear

My Rachel is good on her word and attends NRA convention with Meghan McCain, as promised. I wish I were able to get a play by play of the dialogue that was going through Rachel’s head while walking the floor of convention filled with gun loving republicans (inbreeds).

Maddow, McCain, and Guns
By Advocate.com Editors

Back in January, Rachel Maddow accepted an invitation from Meghan McCain to attend the next National Rifle Association convention. It kicked off Friday, and the two political commentators are there.

Maddow posted a couple of pictures on her website with McCain on the floor of the convention. Coverage of Maddow’s time at the convention will be featured on Monday’s Rachel Maddow Show.

Maddow is no stranger to guns — she’s said that her first date with partner Susan Mikula was at a shooting range.

Born this Way Movement (√ I like)

I love when it’s reinforced, that indeed, I do have a heart. I just got goose bumps watching this 11 yr young man sing his heart out in the safety of an accepting audience. When Gaga came out with her “Born this Way” song, naysayers were out with there picket signs and bitter words before the record was out for an hour (myself included). I am realizing now, the movement that is happening behind the song. Whether you like Gaga or not doesn’t matter. It is one thing to be told as a queer youth that it is OK to be gay/bi/trans, but giving a creative platform, a stage, gives those words power. Gaga is out there being proactive and creating change. What are you doing? So, turn down your quick-to-judge-toxic-people-reader-meter and embrace the Born this Way movement. √ i like
