Joe Wilson, king of no shame

Really, Joe Wilson? Really? It wasn't enough to make a fool of yourself by screaming at President Obama like a toddler throwing a temper tantrum, but now you want to exploit your own stupidity by making money off your disrespectful "You lie!" outburst?

Can you sink any lower? I don't think so. I can't decide if this move means you're desperate for attention, funds or both. I can decide that you're an idiot, since the "you lie" allegation isn't even true; nothing is going to change in how illegal immigrants do or don't receive health care. They won't be covered by insurance -- just the same as now. So not only did you earn yourself the title of "most disrespectful Congressman of the last 100 years," you also were wrong.

Just listen to the words in his ad: "Government-run health care." Of course you have to stoop to such a Karl Rove-esque tactic of calling something by a name that 1. isn't accurate, at all, and 2. scares people. It's the only thing you and your Republican colleagues have left at this point: lies and fear-mongering. There is no other explanation for the terminology you and those like you use when discussing health care reform. Death panels, killing grandma, fat camps, government takeover, rationing ... I refuse to believe you are all THAT stupid to believe any of those things, which leaves me to believe you are not only THAT desperate, but that you, in fact, do not want all Americans to have health insurance, despite your repetitive claims that you do. If you, GOP members of Congress, mean it when you say everyone should be covered, you would work toward a solution instead of backing into a corner and shouting as loud as you can that "socialism" is coming, and you would certainly stop giving Sarah Palin's imaginary death panels any credence whatsoever. (Blue Dog Dems, you need to get your butts in gear, too. You were elected as democrats, start acting like it.)

Grow up, all of you.

As for the 17,000+ people who have donated money to Joe Wilson because of his outburst, I hope you stop to think for one second how you would've reacted to this situation were a Republican president the one who was heckled. Would you think the person who heckled worthy of anyone's donations? Would that person be worth $700,000 in donations?

No? Then why are you donating to Joe Wilson?

Anyone who wants to donate to Joe Wilson's opponent, Rob Miller, can do so here.

By the way, Joe Wilson wants you to know he is NOT going to apologize again!

This is all about the underlying, hideous factor of the racism that is so deeply ingrained in the American character. The attempt to portray this president (Of all people!) as a socialistic, left wing extremist doesn’t even pass the giggle test for people who have bothered to pay attention to their times and their history. Let’s face it - Franklin D. Roosevelt, he ain’t! They can’t obstruct his agenda with a manufactured scandal regarding his personal life, as they did with Bill Clinton. eleven years ago. Their only hope is for enough of the American people to become really frightened by the Big, Bad Negro Commie. An ironic description when one takes into consideration how boringly moderate Obama really is.

Think about this: In the last presidential campaign only one of the nominees of the two major political parties was born in the United States - Barack Obama - John McCain was born in Panama. Do you find it as revealing as I do that it was the black guy had his citizenship called into question? How much more proof do we need of the overt racism that is inherent in that party - or in our own country for that matter? Honestly, this isn’t rocket science, folks!

But wait! It gets better! Now Glenn Beck is slated to become the Martin Loony King of the Far Right thanks to his stupid “March on Washington” yesterday.

Isn’t life interesting?

Thanks for the comment Tom, we agree about the GOP et al. trying to make people afraid of Obama. My belief is that when people say "I want my country back," what they mean is "I want my country back from this black man."
