We all know that the NRA leadership are really demons placed on this earth to make humanity hurt as much as possible – at least that would be our “knowledge” if we listened exclusively to the mainstream media.
So, with that perception from those in the media, the WaPo seemed a bit shocked that Wayne LaPierre has agreed to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and donate money to further research for the disease. He’s on a trip right now, so as soon as he returns, he’s going to do it.
I just have to say that I really hope the NRA staff gets very, very creative with this and actually shows NRA staff having fun and wiling to make the world a better place.*
*Not that I really think that dumping ice water on your head makes the world a better place. Given the energy it takes to make as much ice that has been wasted, some environmentalist is probably crying in the corner every time a new video is posted. However, the fact remains that many people are on board with feel-good showing off that “care” instead of actually contributing directly to causes they really care about.
