Representing the angry folks

"And keep your healthcare reform off my lawn!"With a single shout, U.S. Representative Joe Wilson (R-South Carolina) has become the face of what happens when a political party gets too comfortable shouting at passing cars.

Wilson could not contain himself during President Barack Obama’s speech about healthcare reform on Wednesday.

He shouted, “You lie!” after Obama promised the proposed bill would not provide health care to illegal immigrants.

Wilson stated that he “let [his] emotions get the better of [him]” because he disagrees with the President. However, several colleagues have attested that the phrase “illegal immigrant” is his rage trigger, no matter the context.

“Joe once shouted ‘Hot salami tuna roll!’ at me after I joked that E.T. was an illegal alien,” said Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.). “I thought he just really loved that little brown guy.”

One thought on “Representing the angry folks”

  1. Joe Wilson from South Carolina, is just another good old boy where in the morning these married men preach to you that there should be prayer in our schools and in the evening they are on their cell phones setting up a date with their other women on the side, hypocrisy has been bred in. I am not surprised that he felt compel to yell like he was at some Friday night game. He is a hater not a debater like most of his side of the isle.
