Here’s my question: In his entire entourage of uncritical nuthuggers, was there not one single person willing to play Smithers to Yeager’s Mr. Burns? Nobody to say "Uh, sir, maybe going on camera all bug-eyed and threatening to kill people isn’t such a good idea when bug-eyed people have been running around killing people."
And no matter how much you don’t want him on your team, he is on your team anyway. He is getting so much attention at HuffPo and DailyKos because to them, he confirms every stereotype they have of gun owners the way Limbaugh listeners think that all Democrat voters are dreadlocked hippies in #OCCUPY_DRUM_CIRCLE. James Yeager has sent the entire gun rights movement downrange with a camera.

[Honestly right now we are our own worst enemies. As Tam rightfully points out the media is hunting for the craziest of the bunch to bring forward and put front and center as being representative of all of us. The way they need to run this fight is to make us look inhuman and they’ve been working at it for years.
Please, for the love of god, think before you speak and if you see that you need to play Smithers to a Mr. Burns, freaking do so! –B]
