Wayne LaPierre: The New 'Baghdad Bob'?

Who would be surprised if Wayne LaPierre, the NRA chief, maybe sans the trademark beret,  simply re-worked slightly some of the classic quotes by Saddam's former Minister of information in Iraq as the U.S. troops moved in and threatened to take his weapons?

"No, I am not scared, and neither should you be."
"You can go and visit those places. Nothing there, nothing at all. Everything is okay."
"The American press is all about lies! All they tell is lies, lies and more lies!"
"We are in control, the White House is not in control of anything, they don't even control themselves!"
"Be assured: Our schools will be safe, protected."
"The battle is very fierce and God will make us victorious."
"They mock me for how I speak. I speak better English than they do."
"I have detailed information about the situation...which completely proves that what the media allege are illusions . . . They lie every day."
"They think that by scaring civilians and trying to distort the feelings of the people they will win."
"I can assure you that those villains will recognize in the future how they are pretending things which have never taken place."
"These cowards have no morals. They have no shame about lying."
"I would like to clarify a simple fact here: How can you lay siege to a whole country? Who is really under siege now?"
"The United Nations...it is all their fault."
"We blocked them inside the city. The rear is blocked."
"The president, he needs to be hit on the head."
"I blame Al-Jazeera."
