Let’s give the NRA some credit–it’s been in less of a hurry to dump Senator Larry Craig, an NRA board member, than the Republican Party was. Maybe it’s not as worried about its future as the Republican Party is. Maybe it’s a little more composed than the Republican Party, and can see a foot nudge and a hand wandering under a bathroom stall for what they are–such trivial behavior that not even the NRA would argue decent Americans need to bear arms to protect themselves against it. Maybe the NRA recoils from a bully with a badge manipulating a guy terrified of public exposure in a way the Republican Party doesn’t.

Anyway, here’s a backhanded tribute to the NRA from gay blogger Michael Petrelis. And here’s Larry Craig last year in much happier times.
