For those who stood up and supported Joe Wilson's outburst, your legs have just been taken out from under you by Joe Wilson himself. As for Wilson himself, although there is no excuse for such an outburst in the chambers of Congress, it takes a big man to do the right thing and apologize. Your apology is personally noted by me, and you have my appreciation and respect. Now lets all get back to business and forget about....... Hmmm, what did Wilson say? I forget. Yea, that's the ticket.“This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.”
NOTE: To err is human, but to be a real douchebag takes a Congressman. Joe Wilson just showed that he is human like the rest of us, so give him a break, folks. Today, he did good.
