Last weekend the NRA held their annual convention in Houston, Texas and the Daily Show predictably had a lot of fun with it. My favorite part of the first video is the introductory video of Rick Perry firing a gun and then looking off in the distance at nothing for no reason with a look of clueless conviction about something unsaid.
The second part is even funnier. You get to hear Glenn Beck — Glenn fucking Beck — loudly proclaiming that “we will fight their tactics of fear.” Seriously? You spend your entire life stirring up fear of dark conspiracies that never come true, for fuck’s sake. But the highlight of this video for me is Ted Cruz flatly contradicting himself, feigning outrage over the Democrats filibustering a bill, then moments later declaring his pride in filibustering a bill.
