    The consitution says the House can makes its own rules, they made a rule, so now you have to follow it, it's quite simple.

    Actually it can make the rules whatever it damn well pleases. It's right there in the Constitution.

    I'm curious...if you think THIS violates the First Amendment, what kind of rules could the House possibly establish that would NOT violate the First Amendment? Last I checked, there wasn't a governing body anywhere in the world that didn't have some kind of basic decorum rules. How else would you ever get anything done?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Just offering my analysis not judgment. Liberal congress never crossed the lines that were crossed last night. However, I do appreciate that you are painting Joe Wilson's story as a sob story. Poor ol' hoot'n an a holler'n Joe Wilson. Just couldn't contain that all of that incivility.

    So, the 1st Amendment can be ruled un-constitutional?

    Oh good lord. You really have absolutely no idea how our government operates. Prohibition wasn't ruled unconstitutional, that's why Congress had to PASS AN AMENDMENT repealing it. I hope you are not considering a career in law.

    Um Rep Wilson has every right to be a dick during a speech while the house has every right to censure him for being a dick. I didn't seeing booing listed as a do not do in the house decorum rules

    You're greatly mistaken, sir.

    Again, how many times have Democrat Congress members called GWB a liar in public? How many times were false accusations of crimes made by Democrat Congress members against GWB? How many Congess members falsely accused GWB of orchestrating 9/11?
