Joe Wilson 'You Lie' Assault Rifle Thing: Way Late Or Right On Time?
A South Carolina gun and accessories company has been selling avery special, one-of-a-kind semi-automatic rifle component inscribed with "YOU LIE," to honor the state's favorite son Joe Wilson and his good Southern gentlemanly manners. Yes, for just $99.95, you too can carry those immortal words of pure American bald-eagle-blood spirit on your assault rifle (a kind of gun designed to be very good at killing people, for you librul weenies out there). Which raises the question: Isn't it a bit late to come out with a Joe Wilson gun thing? His outburst was a whole two years ago. Though perhaps, considering very recent events, this is actually the perfect time for member-of-Congress-themed gun parts.
The product “is neither endorsed nor affiliated with Joe Wilson or his campaign,” according to a line of text at the bottom of the page. A picture of Wilson holding a rifle and standing in the company's gun shop appears on the same page.
The perfect accessory for all your black-president-hunting needs.
Unfortunately, the product page for this component is no longer available. Did the gun company see what happened in Arizona and take it down? We don't know. But this "YOU LIE" thing was a limited-edition component, with a production run of 999; considering how murder guns are suddenly more popular than ever the past few days, they probably just plain sold out.
Sounds like a socialist resource shortage to us. Hurry up and give us more member-of-Congress-themed assault-weapon parts, capitalism! We need them... for... stuff. [Free Times]
