Joe Wilson sure wasn't the first!
Thought I'd inject a little politics into 6-Word Saturday. Many of y'all have heard, I suppose, about South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson, & how he heckled the President during the health care speech this week.
BO was talking about health care & illegal immigrants, and the good congressman stood up & shouted, "You lie!"
Just wanted to say that The Honorable Mr. Wilson is not the first of our national legislators to disrespect the President during an address to a joint session of Congress. I'm a DC-ite, & I know from whence I speak.
The last to play the rude card in the House Chamber, however inadvertently, during a Presidential speech was our own Johnny Mac, who fell asleep during George the Second's last State of the Union Address in 2007.
OK, he's old. I get that. I often take a power nap myself. But consider the time & the place. Johnny's sweet running mate has had a few "gotcha" moments herself of late, too, but don't get me started on Sarah P. "pardoning" the turkey.
