Okay. Here’s how a recent article in the Baltimore Sun reporting on a Republican fundraiser in Glen Burnie begins: “The 8-year-old Anne Arundel County boy who was suspended for biting a pastry into the shape of a gun received [a] standing ovation and a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association Wednesday night.”
Republicans, listen up! The pastry-gun incident was absolutely laughable. It was a political freebie. Any time you needed a laugh line in a speech about out-of-touch gun-control advocates, it would have been there for you. It also happened at a school! So it could also have been used whenever it was convenient to broadly disparage school faculty.
