    Re: Santorum Signs 3-Year Old Daughter Up For NRA Membership

    What Santorum did is nothing more than a political statement. Does the child understand politics and what the 2nd Amendment is all about? Of course not. She is only 3 years old. Who is to say what her beliefs are going to be when she is 18? For anybody who has raised kids, you understand that, once they reach a certain age, they pretty much have their own mind, and sometimes it is quite different than what you intend. Take me for instance. When I was younger, my dad told me that I was going to grow up to be one hell of a bass player. Actually, what he told me was "If I hear that damn thing one more time, I'm going to send your ass straight to hell". He was joking of course, but he wanted me to do other things than play music. Rarely is a kid a chip off the old block. And, once Santorum's daughter is grown, if she joins a group that wants gun control, I am going to laugh my ass off.

    No accounting for good taste. Or bad. I think he is funny as hell.

    So the man is indoctrinating his own child? The state mustn't let that happen, oh my!!

    And if she doesn't what will you do then?

    Enrolling a baby in the gun club? I'm willing to bet it would have been a huge story either way.

    The fact that she's disabled and won't live to see adulthood isn't going to be a factor in most peoples' opinion, in my estimation-- from my perspective, the only thing that changes is that the gesture no longer has any value outside of political posturing. She's simply not going to live long enough to benefit from her NRA membership, which I would otherwise consider a fine gift for a child growing up in an armed household.

    For a 3 year old, you'd think that a membership in the "I used the potty all by myself club" would be more useful.

    I guess that doesn't have the political cachet in the Republican party though.

    Though, I would be surprised if anybody remembered by then.
