I don't think Hillary's form was so bad. You don't want to knock back an entire shot of an unfamiliar drink the first time. Heck; I've been known to take a sip from a tequila shot that showed up in front of me, and pass the rest of it along to a deserving person. (Jeez; if you're going to buy me a drink, at least ask what I want.)

'Course, I'm not much of a shots person, though I do dimly remember a night of Kamakazis when I was in my mid-20s. Chicks need to be careful; the appropriate level is usually 1-2 drinks fewer than what the guys are doing.

Hill sure looked better doing this than Kerry did applying for that hunting permit during the 2004 campaign, IIRC.

If you're going to hang around Purdue and drink Boilermakers, you better be prepared to drop that shot in your beer. I would have been impressed if she tied that shot glass in a knot with her tongue, you know. I think I saw a woman do that once, but maybe it was the fine Tennessee sippin' whiskey I was drinking.

I'm suprised she went with the Canadian whisky, Crown Royal, after she took a stand on foreign trade. Couldn't her handlers ask for the Jack? Or Wild Turkey in deference to her rifle skills during her duck hunting days?

Shotgun, D. ;)

Those there are, in fact, eccentrics who hunt turkeys with rifles. (And, of course, plenty of people hunt deer with shotguns, though they aren't using conventional shells.) Never heard of anyone using it on ducks or geese, though.

I hate to admit it, but I still loooovve Canadian Club, and I tend to go for that (or sometimes Dewar's) when the budget won't permit a single-malt.

Hillary specifically said 'rifle' in her story a few months back! I wrote a comment to your posting on the subject saying why that is never wise.

And I own the modern version of Annie Oakley's rifle...the Marlin Golden 39-A.

It's so funny, because when non-hunters think of longarms, they often say "rifle," even when they know better on some level.

Somehow I thought she'd gotten that part right--at least, in one version of her "duck-hunting" fable.

Of course, there are hunters who take game--even up to the size of small deer--with handguns. Naturally, these are specially designed handguns, just as modern blackpowder hunting is nothing like the muzzle-loaders of yesteryear.

I never confuse the two. My Remington 12-gauge is my retirement plan.

(CBS)From CBS News' Fernando Suarez:

WAUSAU, WIS. -- At a campaign stop this afternoon, Hillary Clinton’s focus was on the economy and health care but some in the crowd had other things on their minds. Clinton was asked to discuss gun control which prompted Clinton to talk about her days holding a rifle in the cold, shallow waters in backwoods Arkansas.

I reviewed the tape and Hillary never said "rifle". The MSM however, is another story. I stand corrected. I will never trust the MSM again!

Like that's the first time I heard that!

Look, I'm sorry I ordered you a tequila instead of something else. It was late, we were all pissed, and I am a tequila girl.


Posted by: RightGirl at April 15, 2008 05:51 PM

Oh, I'll always drink tequila for you, Baby. Just not for a stupid guy.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
