Joe Wilson's War

Well, apparently even though it's acceptable to bring guns to meetings where Congressfolk and / or the President are speaking, it's still socially unacceptable to shout "liar" at the President during a speech in the Capital building. As SC representative Joe Wilson found out last night, and again today. His website is still down, But I'm sure once it's back up and running he'll enjoy hearing from you about the appropriateness of his actions.

I do feel for the people of SC. I mean, sure, ok, some of them elected this guy, and all of them elected the governor, but the state really is taking a one/two punch from their politicians these days. Then again, after all those years of Strom Thurmond in the Senate, they should be used to the lowest possible denominator of representations.

If someone's going to shout "liar," shouldn't it be for an actual lie and for something a bit more substantial? I think back on all the terrible lies of the Bush administration and wonder why the entire audience wasn't shouting "liar."

Proof again of the old saying: South Carolina is too small to be a nation; too big to be an asylum.
