Do They Listen To Themselves

Susie Madrak has a post about the rightwing attacks on Sheriff Dupnik that contains this marvelous illustration of the “conservatives” in the US:

…Arizona conservative activist Pamela Gorman, who won national attention over her campaign ad featuring her shooting four different fire arms to “drive the left nuts,” said that Dupnik was only elected to his position because of the county’s Democratic leanings…

In other words, the Sheriff was elected because the majority of the voters in Pima County are Democrats and voted for him, but this is wrong because? Isn’t that the way things are supposed to be, that the majority of voters elect people to office?

By now it should be obvious that “conservatives” in the US believe: “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” I doubt they know or care that their view comes from Chapter 2 of The Little Red Book of Mao Zedong.
