I get this wacko physical junk mail. I’d like to say: “How I get on these mailing lists, I’ll never know,” but I actually have a pretty good idea about some of them. You see, I joined the NRA a about ten years ago (it’s a long story). I let my membership lapse, but that hasn’t made any difference, the flow of fringe stuff continues unabated.
The latest is an offer from a kind of “Conservative Book Club.” No names, I don’t want to give them any business. But with quotes like this:
‘I am often asked if I still think we should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity. The answer is: Now more than ever.’ — Ann Coulter
… you’ve got to admit, they sure know how to pick their content. Books available from them include any number of biographies of Ronald Reagan, treatments of the threat of illegal immigrants, the evils of the UN, trash-heaping the Clintons, vilifying liberals (always), venting about the media, and (go figure) a couple of Emeril cookbooks.
I’ll just have to wonder about the recipes in the Conservative Cookbook, and whether a country that cooks Canadian beef on grills made in China can afford to to think that it can convert anybody to anything.
