Anna Paulina Luna: No guns, no glory

How many liars can one political party endure? X+1 seems to be the Republican answer: Introducing Anna Paulina Luna:

Twelve years before she was elected as the first Mexican American woman to represent Florida in Congress, Anna Paulina Luna was serving at Whiteman Air Force Base in Warrensburg, Mo., where friends said she described herself as alternately Middle Eastern, Jewish or Eastern European. Known then by her given last name of Mayerhofer, Luna sported designer clothing and expressed support for then-President Barack Obama.

By the time she ran for Congress as a Republican, she had changed her last name to Luna in what she said was an homage to her mother’s family. A staunch advocate for gun rights, she cited on the campaign trail a harrowing childhood that left her “battle hardened.” She said she and her mother had little extended family as she grew up in “low-income” neighborhoods in Southern California with a father in and out of incarceration. She said she experienced a traumatizing “home invasion” when she was serving in the Air Force in Missouri.

Luna’s sharp turn to the right, her account of an isolated and impoverished childhood, and her embrace of her Hispanic heritage have come as a surprise to some friends and family who knew her before her ascent to the U.S. House this year. A cousin who grew up with Luna said she was regularly included in family gatherings. Her roommate in Missouri had no recollection of the “home invasion” Luna detailed, describing instead a break-in at their shared apartment when they were not home, an incident confirmed by police records.

I can hardly wait until we find out about her career as a drag king somewhere in South America.

    I take exception to the photo. Only an amateur would pose like that. A real gunster (speaking as a former marine) would have both hands on a single weapon, because that is how you shoot them. But I give her props for her totally self-absorbed mania…

    • The lens you’re using here is distorting the message. As a Marine (pardon the amateur assessment, but once a Marine, always a Marine, correct?), you presume that the message should be “competence”. You earned it, you deserve it.

      Indeed however, with Republicans, the message is NEVER competence, and is always “look at me!”.

      Odds are it’s Ed Wood gold plated, i.e.: applied out of a rattle can.
      It could be Vulgar-plate#, too, but I’ve never been convinced that they couldn’t be the same thing.

      hat tip B4 – blessed be his memory.

    Typical Rethug model. Female, tight clothing, carrying a gun, in this case, gold plated. I can imagine quite a few Rethugs had a bulge of sorts in their tighty whiteys over this. They don’t care if a sentence from her is 2 lies strung together with a smile. Just what we need no more of in Congress, the Senate, or anywhere else.

    Oh, goody. Maybe she’ll have funny money deals too. Then the lunasantos will be indicted—and the House margin will narrow still more.
