Oliver North has made a career, post military, of irking liberals. Now, as if he couldn’t get more loathsome to leftists, he accepts the position of the next NRA president. Hooray for Ollie and good on the NRA!

Oliver North picked to be next NRA president
Retired Marine Lt. Col. and Fox News Contributor Oliver North has been named the next president of the National Rifle Association. He is expected to step down from Fox and take the new post within a matter of weeks.
In an announcement on Monday, NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre said, “Oliver North is, hands down, the absolute best choice to lead our NRA Board, to fully engage with our members, and to unflinchingly stand and fight for the great freedoms he has defended his entire life.”
La Pierre called North a “gifted communicator and skilled leader,” adding that “This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became president of our association.”
Responding via a news release, Lt. Col. North said, “I am honored to have been selected by the NRA Board to soon serve as this great organization’s President. I appreciate the board initiating a process that affords me a few weeks to set my affairs in order, and I am eager to hit the ground running as the new NRA President.”
