Your friendly Lady Yokels were discussing how our own Frederick Republican party is a harbinger of the national party. If we are right, then there is hope to be had. We already elected and disposed of our own Donald Trump. We may have to wait four years for the real one to go, but surely this will occur! If this trend of the national reflecting the local continues, then the national GOP party is about to eat one another alive.
Do you remember a few weeks back when our nice local senator wanted to raise some money by raffling off an AR 15 rifle? You know the same kind of rifle used by that monster in Sandy Hook to end a bunch of little kid’s lives. You may ask why would an elected representative do such a thing? Well, because he’s a great defender of the 2nd Amendment that was bestowed upon us straight from the creator above! It’s true, according to Sen. Michael Hough, God himself is responsible for the 2nd amendment.
You may expect that his fellow Republicans would be all hunky dory with this. Especially since many of them are also great defenders of the Lord’s amendment. However, you would be very wrong indeed! In today’s Frederick Extra report we learn that Sheriff Jenkins believes that the good senator did not obtain the proper permits. And oh traitorous gods of yore, what did Hough do to piss Jenkins off ?! Unfortunately, Jenkins hands are tied until someone actually files a complaint. Wink, wink..any takers?
In the Extra Buzzz, we also learn that someone else is “concerned” about this raffle. “Someone” who has previously been very close to the senator, but now has some concerns! Where is the loyalty with these people?
Thank you local Republicans, for giving us a chuckle on this day that we thought we couldn’t crack a smile.
