Honestly, we’re not kidding about this. Just last week, we were thinking that the great 20th century American songwriter Johnny Burke could have had today’s gun control supporters in mind when he wrote some of the lyrics for Swinging on a Star.
And this week, as if to prove the point, The Hollywood Reporter published an op-ed by Piers Morgan insisting that gun control opponents are “idiots,” repeating Everytown’s false claims about school shootings, and saying that he doesn’t regret being a “barroom bore” about gun control.
Morgan closes his predictably longwinded article by reminding folks that though he still can’t get a TV job, he’s now Editor-at-Large with the (UK) Daily Mail’s MailOnline, where he says he plans on “breaking down the biggest stories that matter to Americans and analyzing them in a way that will generate discussion and create debate.”
We can hardly wait.
