Yes, I read your post. And this one. And you havenít actually contested my central point: that GOA ratings are so subjective that John McCain and Nancy Pelosi get the same rating, based on the organizationís grudge against McCain.

Thereís no objective standard in which McCain and Pelosi can be considered interchangeable on voting on gun laws. Is there overlap? Sure, on a few issues. But just a few. But they are far more different than they are similar, and yet the most radical gun organization rates them identically.

Why do you think Iím angry about this? You seem really bent out of shape by my challenge to your assertion that GOA issues accurate ratings of politicians. I donít really care about McCainís political positions. Iím just saying itís silly for anyone but the most extreme fringes of the pro-gun side to listen to GOA on anything.
