This Doesn't Encourage Political Assasination Either

People are so sensitive nowadays! Remember how upset people got when Congressman Joe Wilson shouted "You Lie!" during Barack Obama's State Of The Union Address? It's free speech man! Lighten up! In that spirit, a company in South Carolina marketed an item engraved with with Joe Wilson's famous quote. What a splendid way to honor freedom of speech!

Yes, of course it was a rifle part. Specifically a lower receiver, whatever those are:

Wouldn't it be great to have one of those in your rifle when you're out shooting... a duck or something.

Sadly if you didn't get one, you're too late. For whatever dopey reason, the company has withdrawn the item since, I dunno, the last week apparently. Like I say, people are sensitive. Still there's nothing stopping you from scratching You Lie or Death Panel or say a comical picture of the President into the stalk of your rifle, to make... duck hunting more fun.

Similarly, there's nothing stopping me from starting a SURVEY SARAH PALIN movement, with a picture of Palin like this only with a surveyor's mark over it.

Nobody would have a problem with that, especially Palin! She's begging to be surveyed! That is, she would like publicity. Let's give it to her, America! Let her have it!
