The man who held a bring-your-guns campaign shooting event six months before Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head is now the Republican nominee to replace her.
Republican Jesse Kelly, a construction manager and Tea Party favorite, won the Republican nomination primary last night to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ). Kelly will face former Giffords district manager Ron Barber in the June 12th special election. Kelly, in his unsuccessful 2010 bid for the same seat, infamously hosted an M16 automatic weapons shooting campaign event to help supporters “get on target” to “help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office.”
I can only imagine the celebratory hoots and hollers heard in the offices of the NRA today. The rest of us can only watch in shame and amazement.
How do you satirize the already-satirical?
