After watching the NRA infomercial that Wayne LaPierre pitched during his psychotic breakdown, Lawrence was feeling his blood pressure rise as sharply as we were:

"Most of those 4 million people disagree with him about a lot of stuff.

"When is the last time this guy got every camera in Washington and live coverage from all cable news networks for something he had to say? He is the CEO of the AARP, which has 40 million members, 10 times the size of the NRA. And the AARP members have more to worry about in the budget negotiations going on in Washington this week than the NRA members have ever had to worry about.

"But if Barry Rand steps up to a microphone to say something about it, I guarantee you no network is going to go live with that.

"And if this guy, who was actually elected to represent 12 million members of the AFL-CIO steps up to a microphone today, no one will go live to him either."

What are they, chopped liver?
