Nobody Drives Corvettes for Racing, They're Too Slow

Snowflakes in Hell has video of Ed Rendell talking like a loon . . . . which he has already taken apart pretty well. I'm not going to redo the work Sebastian has done; I just find myself tickled at Rendell. Is he talking out his . . . . uh . . . sleeve, about things he doesn't understand? Or is he lying? It's hard to decide. What I do know is that Ed Rendell says nobody uses AR-15's to hunt because they're inaccurate, and nobody uses AK-47 clones for home defense because, and I quote, "they jam a lot, and they're the last thing you want. You should have a revolver or something like that."

That's right, kids. That guy on the gun forum who keeps telling everybody to get a revolver, because revolvers don't jam? That could very well be Ed Rendell. And remember not to rely on that AK clone, because everyone knows the AK design is a jam-a-matic, especially if it gets a little dirty, right?

That got me thinking about what other things are really not well-suited to their uses:
  • Don't drive Corvettes on road courses, because Corvettes are slow.
  • Don't use a pickup to haul gravel, because pickups don't carry loads very well.
  • Don't use Ed Rendell to govern your state, because Ed Rendell is ignorant and proud of it.

Um...if either one of those contentions were true, shouldn't we be encouraging the use of ARs and AKs by criminals rather than discouraging it?

If we make them give up their inaccurate jam-o-matics, they may actually start using effective weapons right?

Cognitive dissonance anyone?

705 horsepower? Nobody needs 705 horsepower, that's exactly what I'm on about. That's enough horsepower, if you distributed it rationally and fairly to the downtrodden, to power 14 perfectly serviceable Ladas. Possession of more than 100 horsepower is theft.

That thing's practically a "horsepower hose."
