House Rebukes Wilson for ‘You Lie’

Via the NY Times:

Representative Joe Wilson was formally rebuked by the House on Tuesday for his outburst during President Obama’s health care address. The vote came after a Congressional clash over civility that showcased the deep partisan divisions in the House.

In a mainly party line vote of 240 to 179, the House held that by shouting “You lie” during the president’s speech Mr. Wilson, a South Carolina Republican, committed a “breach of decorum and degraded the proceedings of the joint session, to the discredit of the House.”

The Hill reports, “Wilson addressed the chamber, but did not apologize for shouting at President Barack Obama during the joint session last week.”

Maybe it’s time to stop giving Wilson more headlines on this. He’s an idiot. Enough said.
