Poor murder weapon has to wait to find a new home.

[Update: New development; see end of post] Oh, hi, America's sociopaths, looks like you're just going to have to wait for another chance to bid on George Zimmerman's turgid child-killing muscle. The auction site for the 9mm handgun Zimmerman used to shoot Trayvon Martin dead now displays only a dead link for that particular item:

It's unclear why the listing was removed from the auction site,, or whether the sale was cancelled by the site (very likely) or by George Zimmerman himself (are you kidding?). It's almost as if the gun dealer didn't want to be associated with the most beautiful, iconic artifact of the right to self defense (or prosecutorial incompetence) in American history, for some reason. We're sure someone is working on one beauty of a carefully worded statement at this very moment.

Also, not that anyone would be the least bit surprised to find George Zimmerman lying through his teeth, it turns out the Smithsonian Institution had absolutely no interest in acquiring the Kel-Tec 9mm, no sir, no way, no matter what Zimmerman said in his sales pitch. The Smithsonian clarified the matter in a hurry on Twitter:

Perhaps Zimmerman was thinking of a different institution, such as the Grifty Child-Shooter Media Whore Hall of Fame. We can see how he might be slightly confused about that.

If you still feel the need to spend too much money on an item that screams "I am a raging moron," you can still bid on the 2014 National Rifle Association Black Ops Jeep Wrangler, currently going at the low, low price of $52,225.

You'll have to find your own unarmed black teenager to make the purchase a truly historic artifact, however, and you should know going into it that the Smithsonian probably won't want it.

Update: Another online gun shop with no sense of shame or decency has now made the gun available for auction again. USA. USA.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
