Joe Wilson, a freshman Representative from South Carolina broke the cardinal rule of Congress Wednesday: He spoke the truth.
Now, was it perhaps a little obnoxious of him? Probably. But when someone is breaking into your house with a machine gun, do you stand there and yell at your kid for not taking out the trash? I'm sick and tired of the Left assuming that they're the be-all end-all of the universe and that only crazy loons disagree with them. The idea that someone would dare to get in their face never crosses their minds. They're so arrogant, they can't imagine that someone might disagree. And those who do disagree are the lunatic fringe who carry Nazi signs everywhere they go and burn crosses on people's front lawns.
Remember when Bush gave his addresses, and the booing was heard 'round the world? For some reason it's a cardinal sin now for their endless applause to be interrupted by a little dissension in the ranks.
Joe Wilson apologized for his outburst to the President, and he thinks that's enough: "I’ve apologized one time. The apology was accepted by the president, the vice president. … I am not apologizing again,” he told FOX News Sunday. “I believe that is sufficient.”
It's said that while Galileo grudgingly renounced his findings that the earth moved around the sun when he was forced to, he muttered under his breath, "Nevertheless, it moves."
So if Joe is dragged to the brink and must apologize, here's what I want to hear from him:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I shouldn't have yelled 'You lie!' at the President during his address....Nevertheless, he lied."
God: Judeo-Christian principles and, yes, how they have applied to our system of government. Guts: Those intrinsic things that we feel down in our inner-most being; the things we know are right, and the courage to defend them. Sarah Palin: The name speaks for itself.

If you write me, please mention something about the blog or my name so I know you're not spam. Thanks!
Disclaimers seem to be fashionable these days, so here's mine:
If you think that anything on this blog is in any way connected to Governor Palin herself, you're nuts. These are all my own stupid opinions. Palin probably doesn't even know I exist, nor does she care.
There, that should do it.
Oh, and don't assume that my posts from a year ago reflect the exact same opinion I hold now. I don't have time to go back and update every time I change my mind for the one or two people who are going to click on that post in the future.
"Notice how they’ll accept anything except a (wo)man who stands alone. They recognize (her) at once . . . . There’s a special, insidious kind of hatred for her. They forgive criminals. They admire dictators....They’ve got to force their miserable little personalities on every single person they meet. The independent (wo)man kills them—because they don’t exist within her and that’s the only form of existence they know. Notice the malignant kind of resentment against any idea that propounds independence. Notice the malice toward an independent (wo)man." - The Fountainhead
