Gun Fight at the K Street Corral

A gun is introduced in the first act
Richard K. Armey, the group’s chairman and a former House majority leader, walked into the group’s Capitol Hill offices with his wife, Susan, and an aide holstering a handgun at his waist. The aim was to seize control of the group and expel Armey’s enemies: The gun-wielding assistant escorted FreedomWorks’ top two employees off the premises, while Armey suspended several others who broke down in sobs at the news.
The coup lasted all of six days. By Sept. 10, Armey was gone — with a promise of $8 million — and the five ousted employees were back. The force behind their return was Richard J. Stephenson, a reclusive Illinois millionaire who has exerted increasing control over one of Washington’s most influential conservative grass-roots organizations.
...
“This was two weeks after there had been a shooting at the Family Research Council,” said one junior staff member who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. “So when a man with a gun who didn’t identify himself to me or other people on staff, and a woman I’d never seen before said there was an announcement, my first gut was, ‘Is FreedomWorks in danger?’ It was bizarre.’ ”
Bottom line: After Dead-Dick Dick's armed takeover, the wingnut who owns the Cancer Treatment Centers of America promised Dick $400K a year for 20 years to return the reins of impotence to Matt Kibbe.

Maybe the unnamed aide can share a cell with David Gregory.

20 years, not ten.

Dick Armey should live so long.

I blame Megan McArdle.

What? The FreedomWorks employees weren't carryin'?

So, all those guns displayed the moment Obama was first elected were just for show?

Boy, am I disappointed.

Hey! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I had
to ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work?

I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to
start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of
ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
