The perfect person to be the NRA’s new president? It’s hard to think of anyone better suited for the role than this guy: “Retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, a central figure of the Iran-contra affair in the 1980s, has been named president of the National Rifle Association.”

Just a quick reminder of who and what we’re dealing with here: a) North was a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal during the Reagan Administration, for which he was “indicted on 16 felony counts [and]…initially convicted of three: accepting an illegal gratuity, aiding and abetting in the obstruction of a congressional inquiry, and ordering the destruction of documents through his secretary, Fawn Hall”; b) North ran as a Republican (of course) for U.S. Senate from Virginia in 1994, losing to Sen. Chuck Robb (D) – see below for Robb rip into North for being a “document-shredding, constitution-trashing, Commander-in-Chief bashing, Ayatollah-loving, arms-dealing, criminal-protecting, resume-enhancing, Noriega-coddling, Swiss-banking, law-breaking, letter-faking, self-serving, snake oil salesman who can’t tell the difference between the truth and a lie.” All of which makes North perfect as the next president of the arms-dealing, money-laundering NRA, a group which certainly has no concept of the truth and which lies basically 24/7. In short, it’s a match made in heaven…or more to the point, hell.
