Rep. Blackburn on skeet shooting: I’m ‘not bad for a girl’

We’re now learning more about Blackburn’s skeet-shooting skills. The congresswoman (or congressman, as she prefers to be called) tells ITK in an email her skill level’s “not bad for a girl.”

But Blackburn may be being modest. We hear for about five years the lawmaker held a women’s skeet shoot-off at a Maryland shooting range along with then-congresswoman and now Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) and former Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.).

Blackburn also might not wait for an invite to Camp David from the commander-in-chief. When asked if she’d go ahead and invite Obama to skeet shoot with her, she said “absolutely.”
