Reasoned Discourse

Remember when Dennis Henigan forgot to quote a significant portion of the Second Amendment while defending the DC handgun ban?

Remember when the Brady Campaign then began erasing the video and transcripts of said Freudian slip?

Well now they're taking it even further by putting Winston Smith to work for their Ministry of Truth. Kurt Hoffman, 45Superman of Armed and Safe, has informed me that they're trying to have the video removed from any other place that has it posted under 'copyright infringement'.

They certainly don't like it when their real agenda gets exposed.

Update: Kurt posted an examiner column on this and noted that the Brady Campaign themselves have a history of improperly using materials by Howard Nemerov.

It's almost enough to cause one to question their credibility, isn't it?

Just about. If I didn't know they were just looking out for us I might think they had some sort of phobia or something.

I hope SOMEONE has it stored SOMEWHERE, even if it's not posted, just for reference, ya'know.

Oh, believe me, Woodman--I have it. I think you have my email address. Let me know if you want a copy.

Further suggestion to simply storing the video: transcribe it to text, and post it, in its entirety, as such. Make it very clear where it was recorded, who recorded it, who was featured in it, the date and time of the recording, and so forth... and then criticise the bejesus out of it, citing the transcript. Or commentate on the transcript, in the form of fisking or something similar. Or just parody it, and have both the original and the parody in the same weblog post.

And then let it go viral... :-D.

Hope you'll listen to my interview of Dennis Henigan here:

I think he has undoubtedly set a new Guinness World Indoor Record for saying the most idiotic, unConstitutional things on a one-hour radio show, mine. In fact, I think he has retired the title. Comments welcome.

Shaun Kranish, at, has a copy of the video file, loves legal fights, and can host his own video--so you can see it here. I'd suggest downloading it.
