And speaking of the perversion of “common sense” by anti-rights nuts, it is fairly common knowledge now that Joan Peterson is a board member of the Brady Campaign, among other anti-rights organizations, but we did not know the extent or limits of her influence.
Supporters of common sense restrictions on guns, from both political parties, won a number of U.S. Senate seats yesterday.
This shows again that support for common sense gun laws will not hurt candidates at the polls…
Senator Wyden has long supported common-sense gun measures…
…support candidates who stand up for common-sense gun laws.
Ok, stop your giggling at the Brady Bunch trying to claim victory out of this past election, disregard that “common sense” does not mean what the anti-rights nuts think it does, and try to ignore Paul Helmke’s blatant lies – instead, consider the bolded sections of the above quotes. See anything… familiar?
I am certainly not going to say that Joan Peterson / Japete wrote the above press release, nor am I going to say that she is wholly responsible for the broken-record repitition of “common sense”, but I think it is fair to say that she appears to be something of a trend-setter for the Brady Bunch… and this is a Very Good Thing (TM), as I said over at AmericanMercenary:
Honestly, every time Joan says one of her stupid-assed things, it gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside… Remember, this woman sits on the board of the Brady Campaign – she is, literally, one of their better minds, otherwise she would not be there. And she does not have a gorramed clue what she is talking about. Worse, she appears to have no way of learning a damned thing, much less processing or comprehending anything.
And she is one of the few, the proud, the guiding voices of the Brady Campaign. *giggle* We can only hope she is part of a growing trend at that fine and upstanding organization…
I have no idea how one ends up on the Brady Campaign board, and I honestly do not much care (though I have a sneaking suspicion that the job requirements amount to “volunteered”, “shows up”, and “breathes”); the fact remains that the organization is sufficiently comfortable with Joan Peterson representing it, actively and passively, that she is permitted to remain on that board. Think about that for a second. I am not sure about the rest of you, but if I ran an organization as dependent upon public opinion as the Brady Bunch is, I would have some very serious qualms allowing a potentially mentally deficient individual who cannot do elementary-level mathematics officially represent that group in public… but maybe that is just me.
On the flip side, were the Brady Bunch to drop her, Joan might have grounds for a lawsuit on the basis of discrimination against her syndrome…
(Oh, and would it be too much to ask for the Brady Bunch press release writer to decide whether or not he is going to incorrectly hyphenate “common sense”? Inconsistent dolts.)
