The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz

The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz reports that Democrats are pessimistic about holding on to Mary Landrieu’s Senate seat in tomorrow’s runoff election. One delightful nugget: Landrieu received a $1,000 contribution from Handgun Control–and donated it to a hunting organization to “clear up any ‘confusion’ about her backing of the Second Amendment.” Another supposedly Democratic issue has bitten the dust. Remember when Tom Daschle and other leading Democrats were having vigils in Washington where they would solemnly intone the names of “victims of gun violence”? Many of whom, by the way, were criminals shot in self-defense by armed citizens. Now, Democrats in all but the safest (and most urban) districts are fleeing from the gun issue.
