TheOnesday® Number 21

Tam makes the required observation:
Wayne LaPierre goes and says we need to worry about crazy people with guns, fund better school security, and enforce existing laws & prosecute the people who break them, and the Anti-Gun crowd mocks him as a disconnected pro-gun zealot tool of the firearms industry.

Barack Obama commissions a study group headed by the vice president, and then holds a press conference stating that we need to worry about crazy people with guns, fund better school security, and enforce existing laws & prosecute the people who break them, and the Anti-Gun crowd acclaims him as a charismatic visionary taking a bold and sweeping step forward.
The answer is, of course, simple.  While he wasn't born in a humble cabin on Mount Baekdu, he still is a Nobel Laureate. Probably up for another prize, this time in something real like Physics or nano-molecular Community Organizing or something.

Wayne LaPierre, on the other hand, is just some Angry White Man™  Srlsy, what more is there to say?
ANOINT, v.t. To grease a king or other great functionary already sufficiently slippery.

As sovereigns are anointed by the priesthood,
So pigs to lead the populace are greased good.

Remember Alinsky's rules. Mockery is a sharp tool.  As is holding your opponent to his own standards.
