“He likes hunting with a handgun,” Mr. Olcott said of his brother-in-law [Vice-Presidential nominee Paul Ryan]. “He’ll carry his .357 in the stand — in a holster — and wait for a deer comes in range for a handgun, which is more like bow range, 30 yards or closer,” said Mr. Olcott. “He’s shot a lot of deer with his handgun. He really likes that.”” Olcott said Ryan gave his 10-year-old daughter Liza a Remington 700 .243 youth rifle with a scope last year for Christmas.
— The thing I hate with elections is how you wind up finding out more about complete assholes you’d never want to meet in the entirety of your life, under any circumstance, than you do about people around you all day. How much do I need to know about a guy who shoots at deer with a handgun, like an animal kingdom Dirty Harry? I know so many things about this jagoff now; I used to know all kinds of dumb stuff about Sarah Palin— why??? Why did I know any of that crap? “Hey, are there any politicians out there who are unpleasant people, and also have shit for brains? I know— I’ll spend decades repeatedly confirming that the answer is yes! Over and over and over again. That’s a good way to spend my time,” Ernst Stavro Blofeld whispered, while stroking a white cat on his lap, from his volcano headquarters. I’m just doing life all wrong, from a Blofeldian perspective.
