Aside from European men's fashion, I can't think of a bigger waste of money.
What a load of steaming bullcrap.

The NRA's stance is that if you are A-rated or better, they will not support an opponent, regardless of party. If both candidates are A-rated, they will support the incumbent. You can vote the "wrong way" on a few things and still be A-rated, as long as its not an enormous vote like a gun ban.

A lot of Republicans were outraged at the NRA for refusing to help defeat Harry Reid since he was A-rated, and that election was so close, that just a little effort from the NRA may have scared enough people to elect Angle. That policy is going to pay off now, because Reid and several other A-rated Dems in the senate who have seen their non-partisan loyalty rewarded, are going to put a stop to this nonsense.
