The NRA will negatively score lawmakers who vote to confirm Elena Kagan, even though she never said anything bad about guns. But! According to RedState's Erick Erickson, who brought out the bootleg Drudge siren and everything, the NRA is "leaning toward endorsing Harry Reid."
Why would the NRA do this? Because Harry recently bought them a fancy gun park in Nevada.
The right-wing Internet nuts are all enraged at the NRA these days, for things like occasionally supporting Democrats and for successfully lobbying for their right to continue electioneering. Erickson points out that the real gun lobby -- the fringey Gun Owners of America -- hates Reid and is working tirelessly to fire him, or at him.
Of course, Harry's opponent, Sharron Angle, loves guns so much that she has mentioned something called "Second Amendment solutions" to the various problems plaguing America (like Harry Reid, say).
But Reid, whom the NRA has endorsed before, is one of the most influential and powerful men in Washington. If there's a chance he holds on to his seat, it would be pretty stupid of them not to endorse him.
