Cartman of ‘South Park’ Signs for 500 AK-47s, Like Just Like Blackwater Did…

Art imitating life? Not quite … Spencer Ackerman reports on the Washington Independent:

On Feb. 23, I broke a story about how the Senate Armed Services Committee determined that Blackwater employees in Afghanistan signed for hundreds of AK-47s and pistols using the name “Eric Cartman,” evidently a reference to the popular South Park character.

On March 17 — which Dave Weigel tells me is the season premiere — South Park will show Eric Cartman signing for the guns.
