It’s always a good time when politicians break out guns. And so we here at the Blue Ridge Caucus particularly enjoy this ad from West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, who’s running for the U.S. Senate.
Besides the gun, we find what Manchin’s saying to be pretty interesting. Taking aim at cap-and-trade? Repealing Obamacare? Just what party is this guy, anyway?
As you’ve probably guessed, Manchin is a Democrat, which may give some indication just how unpopular President Obama is in West Virginia … and perhaps, by extension, Virginia’s 9th District, which sits up against our western neighbor.
And, just for kicks, another gun-toting politician in a political ad — this time a failed candidate for Alabama ag commissioner.
