I find it kind of disrespectful of the NRA Board to select him. There are many far more suited to the job. I get the feeling it's like the Masons or Shriners where you keep your nose to the grindstone and work your way to the top, many times by being a bootlicker. This position shouldn't be filled by that criteria. And yes, I was a Mason and Shriner for many years before dropping out because of the politics. Be nice to see who voted for this asshole.

I don't care that much for Ollie, but I don't have strong animus either, so this. Rather like Trump. I don't care much for Trump, but: "I can't spare this man. He fights."
