From my firearms expert…

An email this morning:

In videos all over TV we see new VPILF Palin firing what looks like either an M-16 or (newer model) M-4 in full auto mode and semi auto mode.

I do not know who taught her to use those weapons, but she is holding them wrong. A tight grip on the forestock is not good. For more accuracy, especially in short burst firing, which is most recommended, one should gently “cup” or cradle the barrel, not hold it tight. This leads to more inaccuracy.

So even the things she does know how to do, she doesn’t know how to do correctly?

Damn, I may have to change my position. She seems extremely qualified to be a Republican vice-president.

Not quite Cheney level perhaps, but certainly in the Quayle range.

  1. Hmmm. Good question. Let’s see, it is said that “mermaids would sometimes sing to sailors and enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to walk off the deck or cause shipwrecks.”

    Replace “sailors” with “old P.O.W.s” and I think we have to go with Ms. Palin.
