I'd like to thank Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) for having the balls to show something other than knee-jerk deference to the President last night.

I'm being serious. Wilson was wrong -- Obama wasn't lying -- but the idea that one musn't ever be rude to the Commander-in-Chief is ridiculous.

If eight years of Bush taught us anything it's that Presidents have to earn respect, and not get it handed to them along with the front door key to the White House.

What's that you say? Obama has earned that respect, and Wilson was just being a childish tool and the perfect representative of the current state of the Republican Party?

Huh. Good point. Well... then I'd like to thank Rep. Wilson for being such a douche on national television, and for helping to rally all those who do show knee-jerk deference to the President to Obama's side.
