West Virginia Miners Thump NRA

Here's a story from Crooks and Liars that you won't be seeing much of in the MSM/SCLM: Coal miners in West Virginia took an unscheduled day off (a walkout) after the mine owner allowed a film crew from, of all things, the National Rifle Association, to come on site and try to get the miners to say something negative about Barack Obama.

Kudos to those coal miners for standing up to management and to the NRA. West Virginians are an independent and sometimes cantakerous lot, and they obviously resented the hell out of the "gotcha" attitude of this so-called "documentary" film crew.
