The NRA Convention.

The American Thinker says this:

"McCain got in a line on a protester, Thompson got in a line on Bill Clinton, and Rudy tried to make peace with his previous anti gun positions."

But he says the best speaker of the night by far was "Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube, and you can read more about him here. told of his massive injuries while fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. Trying to relay his story here seems futile. I can't match in print the emotion of the man nor the way I felt about him even were I a better writer."

C-SPAN has posted video of the speech. Go to 7:45 on the Real Player version for Sgt. Stube's speech.

How exactly was the NRA and Sgt. 1st Class Stube related?

"He talked about his recovery, the year he spent in the hospital, only recently getting out. He said that what sustained him was his faith in God, his incredible wife, the amazing military medical professionals who rebuilt him, and something that surprised me, the wonderful assistance of the NRA and corporate partners that took a personal involvement in his recovery."

I can't imagine why we haven't heard about this in the MSM. (rolls eyes)

In case you haven't seen the video of Rudy answering a cell phone call from his wife in the middle of his speech to the NRA, HotAir has it. All I have to say is that it was completely idiotic.
