AR-15-lovin' Gayle Trotter, brought to you by Richard Mellon Scaife (Remember him?)

To DUers who still retain a vivid memory or two of the 1990s and the never-ending investigations of the Clinton administration, the name Richard Mellon Scaife may ring a bell. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, read on:

So what does this have to do with today? Why, today the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on gun violence, and the Scaife-financed Independent Women's Forum sent a representative, Gayle Trotter, to advocate for guns, particularly the AR-15, used by Adam Lanza to kill 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Sample quote:

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2013/01/lets-not-make-gun-laws-based-imaginary-crimes/61598/

"The peace of mind a woman has with three, four, five violent intruders in her home -- with her children screaming in the background -- the peace of mind that comes with a scary-looking gun gives her more courage when she's fighting hardened, violent criminals," the Independent Women's Forum's Gayle Trotter testified about the AR-15's contribution to women's rights.

3. Of course! Now, that makes sense.

Scaife only uses his inherited money for evil. You ought to check out the propaganda newspaper rags that he owns in Pennsylvania. The people are brainwashed everyday by his hateful, bigoted, libertarian screeds.

8. Female teabaggers are not women

Real women don't kowtow to right-wing coup plotters.

6. Wasn't Scaife the main source of funding for Chris Ruddy, Am Spectator and Newsmax?

Vince Foster, Whitewater, Ron Brown "Investigations" - you name the Clinton witch hunt and Scaife was there with his tool Chris Ruddy.

7. Independent Women's Forum? That's a misnomer if there ever was one

They should be renamed the "Stepford Fembots Forum." Those so-called women have not a single independent thought of their own.
