Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC 2) appears on the Dylan Ratigan show to discuss the Health Care meeting President Barack Obama is hosting with Republican leaders. Joe says the meeting is a good first step in bi partisanship and hopes this is the beginning of a new transparency with the Obama administration and Democrats on Capitol Hill. Joe is a supporter of HR 3400, which among other things, would allow people to have a greater choice in health insurance providers by allowing insurance to be sold across state lines (much like home and auto insurance currently is)

Saturday Night Live produce some gems like the Sarah Palin impersonations by Tina Fey. In the this skit SNL pulls out another classic with their version of the Rep. Joe Wilson "you lie!" outburst. In the fictional skit the Republican caucus all decides together to yell "you lie!" after the President makes his statement regarding illegal immigrants. When Rep. Wilson leaves to use the restroom the group changes their mind and decides not to yell anymore only Wilson is gone. The funnier part may be the after speech caucus when Republican leaders bemoan the fact that Rep. Wilson is from South Carolina and helped to defend the confederate flag. //// It started with US Rep. Joe Wilsons You lie! outburst during President Barack Obamas address to Congress last week, continued Saturday with tennis player Serena Williams telling a judge, If I could, I would take this @#$% ball and shove it down your @#$% throat, and wrapped Sunday night with hip-hop artist Kanye West seizing the microphone from VMA winner Taylor Swift and telling the crowd that Beyonces video was better. Joe Wilson could have responded to President Obamas speech by trying to fix what he thought was broken and, failing that, defeat it. Serena Williams could have taken a step back from the baseline, continue the match and file a protest over what she considered a bad call. Kanye West could have kept his big mouth shut, recognizing he isnt the final authority over whats best. We live in an increasingly crowded and ...

Out-of-control Republican House member shouted "You lie" during President Obama's health care speech to Congress on Wednesday, and members of both parties condemned the heckling. South Carolina Democratic Party chair says Wilson "embarrassed" state. The outburst came when Obama denied that proposed health care legislation would provide free health coverage for illegal immigrants. Immediately, Wilson shouted, "You lie!" . The outburst caused Obama to stop and look toward the heckler. "That's not true," the president responded. Behind him, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared shocked and turned toward the outburst as Vice President Joe Biden looked down and shook his head. Loud boos echoed through the chamber immediately after the outburst. While it was the most attention-getting, Wilson's shout wasn't the only demonstration of displeasure made by Republicans during the speech. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, wore a sign around his neck that said, "WHAT BILL?" And when Obama asked Republicans to share their health reform ideas with him, a small group raised up a stack of papers above their heads. After the speech, Republican Sen. John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate defeated by Obama last year, called Wilson's outburst "totally disrespectful" and said he should apologize. Appearing on CNN's "Larry King Live," he said there was "no place for it in that setting or any other and he should apologize immediately." Other Republicans also criticized Wilson, along with ...

Roughly 24 hours after shouting at President Obama during an address to Congress, Rep. Joe Wilson appears on Sean Hannity's TV show to argue that it is possible for illegal immigrants to receive benefits under Obama's health reform proposal. "I apologize for speaking out," Wilson said, "but what he said was not accurate." Wilson adds that he agrees with Hannity about the double standard in the media, and the "feigned outrage" over Wilson's outburst, when compared to former President Bush being booed in 2005 at a joint session of Congress, there was not much of an uproar.
