NRA endorses McCain; not vice-versa

So, it’s official:

The National Rifle Association is endorsing Republican presidential nominee John McCain despite differences with the Arizona senator on gun-show rules and campaign finance restrictions.

John McCain on CNN eight years ago:

“The NRA is entitled to their advocacy. I don’t think they help the Republican Party at all, but I don’t think they should in any way play a major role in the Republican Party’s policy making.”
— John McCain, May 12, 2000
