On the Sunday talk show circuit this morning, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre (on ABC’s "This Week”) strongly reiterated his disappointment with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., for his "assaults on the First Amendment" (with his campaign finance reform bill) and the Second Amendment (with his bill to impose stricter background checks at gun shows). On the same program, McCain recalled LaPierre had campaigned against him and for George W. Bush in last year’s South Carolina primaries, and described the NRA and just "another special-interest group.” That comment may have made the senator’s break with the NRA complete. Some Washington pundits are already quietly expressing the belief that McCain may, in fact, be planning to bolt the Republican Party. McCain has been a staunch NRA ally for decades, and he is well aware the group is considered one of the strongest grassroots groups in the Republican Party - and perhaps more so in his home state of Arizona. McCain is up for Senate re-election in 2004, the same year as the next presidential election. Analysts say the buzz may try to get on a Democrat ticket, and his break with the NRA is just one sign of his plans. Under the McCain-Feingold campaign finance bill, asserted LaPierre, huge conglomerates such as Viacom, AOL/Time Warner, GE/NBC and others could say "anything they want” and "bring on Rosie O’Donnell and Barbra Streisand” and preach their anti-gun message, but the NRA would have to shut up 60 days before the election. That is not the sort of thing that is in tune with the spirit of freedom "here in the United States of America,” he added, "but is something more familiar in countries far, far away.” Whereupon, "This Week” host Sam Donaldson thanked LaPierre for "appearing on this huge [Disney/ABC] conglomerate.”

Maybe it'll be McCain vs. Reverend Al in the '04 dem primary. Wouldn't that be something? Norm
