The Nitwit's Fandango
South Carolina's GOP pols are completely off their rockers lately.
First there's the embarrassment of a soon to be former governor Mark Sanford who can't seem to keep his dick in his pants or tell the truth but thinks that neither of those things ought to disqualify him from the governor's mansion.
Tonight something different happened when a hitherto unknown GOP Representative from the Palmetto State, Joe Wilson, shouted at the president "you lie!" during his speech tonight. I guess he thought he was at a town hall meeting, Klan shindig, or something like that, kinda forgot where he was and who he's supposed to be representing.
What was stunning, too, was, the rapidity with which Wilson got in the cafeteria line for an extra large helping of crow, served up just the way he likes it.
Of course, we fully expect that, in a line stolen from Hamas recently, the usual suspects will declare victory on the airwaves tomorrow.
Be that as it may, it's worth noting that this sort of stuff renders the effectivity of these two nitwits at something less than zero, and I'm quite sure that a lot of people in South Carolina are asking themselves how in hell they got elected and why they're still getting paid.
They're an embarrassment.
Of course our Steve King is no slouch himself for opining that if Barack Obama got elected the terrorists would be dancing in the streets, or the Senile Senator hisself for indulging in a little town hall theater lately, stealing his lines of course from Sarah Palin.
On that note, I wonder why anyone thinks he's capable of or willing to negotiate anything at this point.
I guess the Dems have been out of power so long that they forgot what it's like to use that damned majority.
The message from every Democrat to the GOP and its adherents should be "Push, pull, or get the hell out of the way." My next stop is over at the party website where I am going to offer my services in any capacity for any candidate who runs against Grassley.
Here's the rendition of the staged episode from the Times:
"Mr. Wilson seemed rattled in the wake of his comment, and quickly left the chamber at the end of the speech.
His office later issued an apology, saying: “This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the president’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”Mr. Wilson also phoned the White House and reached Mr. Emanuel, who accepted an apology on behalf of the president."
