Clinton/Kaine

Hillary has chosen Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate.

While he is a bit of a disappointment to some “progressives”, he shouyld be warmly received by the antigunners.

From the NY Times:

“… Mr. Kaine, a gun owner himself, is a consistent supporter of gun control measures and has backed broad background checks and restrictions on the sale of combat-style weapons and high-capacity magazines. The 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech inspired Mr. Kaine, then the governor, to close loopholes in Virginia law that allowed some people to buy guns despite failing background checks. In the Senate, he supported the Manchin-Toomey bill, which would have expanded background checks to cover gun shows and weapons sold over the internet. He also backed banning gun sales to terrorism suspects on the government’s “no-fly” list …”

And here is a longer story from CNN, “Clinton’s new VP pick could be point man on guns.

Here’s Kaine at 0:45 during last months phony filibuster in Congress:

  1. Kaine’s appeal to anti-gunners is microscopic. In the indentity politics world of the left, he has a very serious identity crisis. Kaine and Clinton are like white on rice. How will that play with their minority base? Like shit.

  2. Hillary’s political philosophy of “drink vodka, play politics” is about to meet the freight train of reality. Ugly, from her perspective, but poetic justice to the rest of us.
