The 2013 NRA Convention Served Up A Heaping Helping Of Nuttery For Jon Stewart To Play With Last Night

In case you hadn’t heard, the NRA held its annual gun nut convention in Houston over the weekend, and it predictably featured a laundry list of insane dolts — Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rick Perry and Ted Cruz among them — who stepped up to a podium and said of bunch of unhinged, nonsensical, contradictory things into a microphone. Naturally, Jon Stewart and the Daily Show writing staff were laying in wait, like a pack of hungry cheetahs waiting for a bloated, limping antelope to walk by, ready to pounce, and pounce they did last night.

What kind of crazy were the speakers at the convention serving up, you ask? Well, Glenn Beck, for instance, stated that the only thing standing “between your mom and sister getting raped and them walking home unmolested is a gun.” And that pretty much sums everything up right there.

“At the heart of the NRA’s message is, ‘Don’t let liberals say it’s a dangerous world and scare you into gun control, let us say it’s a dangerous world and scare you into gun-a-palooza,” Stewart said last night, accurately summing up the general theme of the convention.
