Apologies are for liberals.

“I rebuke thee, Joe Wilson” © U.S. House of Representatives:

The 240-179 roll call Tuesday by which the House passed a resolution of disapproval against Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., for Wilson’s ”You lie!” shout during President Barack Obama’s health care address to a joint session of Congress.

A ”yes” vote is a vote to pass the resolution.

Voting yes were 233 Democrats and 7 Republicans.

Voting no were 12 Democrats and 167 Republicans.

Voting present were 5 Democrats.

How important is this resolution? Not very, obviously. It’s largely a symbolic gesture of disapproval. I’m still happy that some kind of official disapproval was voiced, though. His apology to the president was a joke made all too apparent when he turned around and solicited for donations. A Half-ass apology followed by the exploitation of the very thing you’re purported to be sorry about strikes me as insincere.

What Rep. Wilson did was absolutely wrong. He didn’t just grossly breach the rules of decorum and disrespect the president in the middle of his speech. He lied! He stood up falsely accused the president of lying. Usually, you’d assume someone who does something as dramatic as that is motivated by truth. But because it’s evident he disrespected the president over a completely baseless point, it makes you wonder what his motivations really were, doesn’t it? *Shrug*

Who knows. Hopefully we stick to the facts from here on out. Yeah, I won’t hold my breath, either.

Rep. Wilson was asked by his colleagues to sit in a corner at an undisclosed location.
