Tim Scott

  • Tim Scott, today's reminder that I could have my own television show in snap if I just turned 'black republican.'

    Contests, Guns / Firearms, Holidays and Seasons, Non-Sequiturs

    Non-Sequiturs: 12.17.12

    We’re getting the first black Senator from the Confederacy since Reconstruction, and it’s going to be Tim Scott. That’s kind of like having Clarence Thomas replace Thurgood Marshall. [The Caucus / New York Times]

    * A Newtown gun group has a beef with Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. A beef whose stupidity shouldn’t need to be highlighted by tragic deaths. [Washington Briefs]

    * I’m not sure how mandatory gun insurance helps anything. [Breaking Views]

    * Since God stubbornly refuses to use his omnipresent powers to stop bullets, I’d rather use a sensible legal framework to protect my child, not faith in things unseen. [Slate]

    * One thing that would keep us all safer would be to just keep guns out of the hands of white males. (I’m kidding, of course. I’m a liberal and I don’t believe in racial profiling.) [Salon]

    * The deadline for the Above the Law Holiday Card contest is tonight. Send us your holiday cheer NOW, or you’ll be so freaking sorry. [Above the Law]

    * We’ve got a real, pro-gavel court. [Onion]
