Rep. Joe Wilson claims he feels so strongly that illegal immigrants should not benefit from health care reform that he shouted “You lie!” at the president during a joint session of Congress.
Now, let’s ignore whether Wilson’s outburst was rude or disrespectful. Let’s also ignore whether providing health care for illegal aliens is a good idea (since emergency rooms won’t turn anyone away, we’re already paying for health care for illegals anyway).
My question is, does that make Wilson a flip-flopper, or merely a liar?
Maureen Dowd has an interesting read about Joe Wilson and South Carolina politics in general, that might explain the real reasons for Wilson’s outburst.
Or for a fun rant, read this.
