No lie

Oh, this is good timing - and in such good taste, too:
A South Carolina gun and accessories company is selling semi-automatic rifle components inscribed with “You lie” – a tribute to the infamous words of 2nd District Republican Congressman Joe Wilson when he shouted at President Barack Obama during a congressional speech about national health care reform in the fall of 2009.

“Palmetto State Armory would like to honor our esteemed congressman Joe Wilson with the release of our new ‘You Lie’ AR-15 lower receiver,” reads a portion of the company’s website.

Nothing like combining semi-automatic weapons and politics, especially after the Giffords shooting - not to mention honoring that infamous discourtesy to a President of the United States from the floor of the House. Yeah, those Republicans are really a class act, aren't they?

I don't even know what kind of "component" this is supposed to be, but does it matter? They're only $99.95, and they've only got a thousand of them. Better get yours quick!
