An Internet friend relayed this experience to me:
A Moment Of GleeMy friend said that with the money that Mayor Bloomberg is throwing around, more calls are likely.
I got a phone call today from a true believer, paid for by Mayor Bloomberg. Supposedly from the “Gabby Giffords Campaign Against Gun Violence”, asking me to contact my congressman and senators to demand gun control.
I about hurt myself trying to keep cool and reel him in. Such opportunities are very rare. So many ways to mess with their heads.
Probably the best zinger was when I asked how Gabby Giffords *husband*, Mark Kelly was doing.
What do you mean?
Well, he confessed to committing a serious federal gun crime on the radio, and he is going to be arrested. Does he have a legal defense fund yet?
I told him about Kelly acting as a straw buyer for a “fully automatic”(sic) AR-15 “military assault rifle”, and how “any day now” federal Marshals were going to arrest him and that Gabby Giffords will probably have to go to a nursing home because Mark could be in jail for years.
The poor young man was so frazzled that he apologized and had to hang up.
