Illinois gun "enthusiasts" sent out an anti-Bloomberg, anti-Robin Kelly postcard...and managed to misspell both Debbie Halvorson's name and-- wait for it-- "February".

Here's an idea:

Imagine what would happen if gun zealots could spell! Thay kood beekum a reel thret:

The above images were sent to me in an email, and they come to us via @dkoselections. I edited them to highlight the errors and also added the arrows.

Yes, according to Very Dedicated to the Constitution Guy, we are to "suport" the right to "own bare arms"... according to the "Secont Ament." I'm relieved to hear that, since I own two bare arms, and even a bare the-rest-of-me.

Actually, the Second Amendment mentions a little something about a "well-regulated militia," presumably in uniform. A bare-armed militia would get plenty of laughs, but not much protection from the elements. And don't get me started on the chafing.

As a special added bonus I'm adding a few other choice examples of the genius behind right wing messaging:

GOP Alabama Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin: "When a physician removes a child from a woman, that is the largest organ in a body."

There goes that whole GOP personhood meme... unless, of course, Alabama state Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin thinks an organ should have the right to vote, own a gun, and carry misspelled signs calling President Obama a gay Marxist commie Kenyan. I can see the protests now: Organs' rights! Organs' rights! Or as Texans would scrawl, ograns':

When asked why she would vote to limit the ability for women in Alabama to get abortions, McClurkin gave an answer that's left more than a few people confused:

"When a physician removes a child from a woman, that is the largest organ in a body," McClurkin said in an interview Thursday. "That's a big thing. That's a big surgery. You don't have any other organs in your body that are bigger than that."

One, it's not a child, it's a fetus.

And two, as BuzzFeed notes, not only is McClurkin physiologically confused (and sadly-yet-comically ignorant), she also failed to realize that the average human liver is larger than the average 20-week-old fetus. And that human skin is an organ, our largest organ, another organ that's larger than a fetus... which is not an organ.

Merriam-Webster:

2 a : a differentiated structure (as a heart, kidney, leaf, or stem) consisting of cells and tissues and performing some specific function in an organism

b : bodily parts performing a function or cooperating in an activity <the eyes and related structures that make up the visual organs>

If a fetus were an organ (I just had a momentary mental image of Barbara Walters asking a celebrity, "If you were an organ, what kind of organ would you be?"), there should be no objection by pro-forced-birthers to removal, unless of course, they are also opposed to life-saving medical procedures.

Which many who are anti-abortion under any circumstances are.

It's becoming clearer than ever that when the Republicans expressed a desire to reinvent themselves, they meant morphing into something even stupider than Bobby Jindal imagined.
