And The Beat Goes On And On

The calling Mark Udall anything but a moderate drumbeat that is. Usually we would only count a remark if it came from a msm or a liberal blog. This one comes from a blog that appears to be a non partisan hunter's blog. Udall is trying to buy hunter's votes with legislation as a part of David Sirota's "land politics" strategy, making this a legitimate blog to count, we believe.

This blog is located in Virginia and is terriermandotcom. He said:

Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) has introduced the "Teddy Roosevelt Bring Back our Public Lands Act," which would limit the amount of money that states can charge non-residents who hunt big game exclusively on U.S. Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management land. Duncan Hunter seems unaware that this law is unconstitutional under the 10th Amendment but don't spend too many brain cells thinking about it, as this legislation is not going anywhere. There is not even a Senate version of this bill. Ben Nelson, chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (a bi-partisan group consisting of more than half the members of the Senate and House who support hunting and fishing), is dead-set against this bill, as are such diverse Members of Congress as reliably right-wing Rep. C.L. “Butch” Otter (R-ID) and reliably left-wing Rep. Mark Udall (D-CO). So why was this bill even introduced? Simple: Election-year pandering to hunters.

That makes the count:
Extremist 2
Reliably Left Wing 1
Liberal 6
Moderate 0
Conservative Not in this lifetime

Our last post on this subject was here.

Gun enthusiasts will laugh at the previous post on this blog. Actually, almost anyone who isn't a total hypocrite will laugh at it. The hypocrites will grit their teeth.
