This ad has not been the NRA’s most successful PR outing, it would seem. So how are they dealing with the backlash? As NBC News’ Mike O’Brien reported, an NRA spokesman has words for the critics, saying, “Whoever thinks the ad is about [President] Obama’s daughters are missing the point completely or they’re trying to change the subject.”
Topping the list of the people who think the ad is about the president’s daughters are the people who made the ad for the NRA. Topping the list of the people who are trying to change the subject is that NRA spokesman.
Oh well, so much for having the courage of one’s convictions.
