Shoot 'em up nation

This story from the South Carolina Free Times leaves me speechless. A gun company engraves the words "You lie" on a semi-automatic rifle component, to honor Congressman Joe Wilson for insulting the president of the United States. Sarah Palin must be advising the company.

"Palmetto State Armory would like to honor our esteemed congressman Joe Wilson with the release of our new 'You Lie' AR-15 lower receiver," the weapon manufacturer's site writes in the product description. "Only 999 of these will be produced, get yours before they are gone!"

They'll be engraving bullets with Obama's name on them next. And when the press reports it, Palin will howl. Talk about shooting the messenger — she means it.

I'd like to hear from the Palin/Limbaugh/Wilson apologists on this one.

AND ABOUT THAT EXPRESSION "BLOOD LIBEL": Why did Palin choose to use an anti-semitic phrase in her recent attack?
