joe wilson did what he could to expand the 2009 south carolinian PR campaign (beyond mark sanford's "international man of mystery" tour) and i think we all were united in our disapproval of his manners around the house the other day. as a matter of fact, i think that shared sentiment of disapproval is the first thing i've read that demicans and republicrats have so quickly agreed upon since they tag-teamed on deregulating wall street just in time to catch the peak of the wave of newly-approved (uncomforming, unperforming, what's the difference?) mortgages over at fannie and freddie. but now, apparently dissatisfied with public humiliation and an unconditional apology, democrat political appetites will not be sated by anything less than an official congressional rebuke
. can they truly be as stupid as this proves they are?
don't get me wrong, i give both sides of the aisle full credit for being in favor of proper decorum in congress, especially during addresses by a sitting president. but i can imagine no tactic more assuredly guaranteed to turn up the righteously indignant sentiment that calling out "no clothes" to an emperor riding on the back of an ass shouldn't get the messenger shot than this one.
i expect, joe being the better-mannered man he has become in light of his rapid apology to his best friend, barack, he will not be delayed in penning his thank-you note to the opposition for so quickly returning him to the moral high ground.
i'm sure you're welcome, joe!
