Speaking of Brady Campaign's Paul Helmke and Dennis Henigan, we wouldn't want them losing their grip and falling off the far left edge of the planet. An electronic search reveals that the two of them have submitted over 200 essays to the leftist www.HuffingtonPost.com website since January of 2006.
"It is time for progressives to stand up to the radical right," Henigan proclaims in a recent item. "It is time for progressives to stand up to the right's misappropriation of our Constitution and to claim for themselves the label of 'constitutionalists.' After all, proponents of a stronger federal government were the winners of the Founding-era debate. The radical right of the modern era can trace its lineage only to the losers."
Henigan may be confused about American history, since no one of his political orientation traces his lineage back to anyone associated with the founding of this country. But when it comes to losers, Henigan ought to know better than most. In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), the Supreme Court put his two theories about the Second Amendment--that it protected a right of a state to have a militia, or that it protected a right of a person to be armed in a state militia--in the "recycling bin" and clicked on "empty."
