Meet Obama-Heckler Joe Wilson: An Illustrated Guide [Wingnuts]


Chuck Boustany must be pissed! He gave the official GOP rebuttal of Obama's speech, but it's mad heckler, Rep. Joe Wilson, who's getting all the attention. Oh well. Let's learn more about Joe, a histrionic right-winger who loves racists!

 First of all, <em>he's</em> the liar. Everyone's saying, "Joe Wilson this" and "Joe Wilson that." Well, his name's not even Joe. It's Addison, and he hails from <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged SOUTH CAROLINA" title="Click here to read more posts tagged SOUTH CAROLINA" href="http://gawker.com/tag/south-carolina/">South Carolina</a>, the land of America's juiciest, <a href="http://gawker.com/5349880/did-south-carolina-of-course-school-board-chair-quit-over-erotica">most literary sex scandals</a>. And, if that's not convincing enough, he once, for some reason, insisted, "I am not a rabid partisan." His pants be on fire! <a href="http://www.americancacher.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=231"><em>Image via.</em></a>  Second, he's a coward. If Wilson were a true conservative hero, he would have the balls to stand his ground in the face of fierce opposition. But he doesn't. In fact, he's already issued an apology: <blockquote>For example, following the outrage over tonight's comments, Wilson rapidly issued an apology: 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.</blockquote> Note that this apology presupposes coverage of illegal immigrants, of which there is none. It's also worth mentioning that he offered an apology back in 2002, when he accused California Rep. Bob Filner of being "virulently anti-American" because Filner had the nerve to wonder whether America gave Saddam Hussein biological and chemical weapons. So, Wilson's a loud mouth who's easily intimidated into contrition. And, by the looks of his off-line official website, scared of backlash.  He keeps bad company. Wilson, who was elected to the House in 2001, has a life-long love of politics. He spent some of his teenager years working for this guy, Sen. <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged STROM THURMOND" title="Click here to read more posts tagged STROM THURMOND" href="http://gawker.com/tag/strom-thurmond/">Strom Thurmond</a>, a man so racist that he once led a 24 hour long filibuster to thwart the 1957 Civil Rights Act. He also was no fan of the gays, which, not surprisingly, is basically in line with Wilson's politics.
 While we're on the subject of racist friends, Wilson <a href="http://images.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/fecimg/?26020722782">donated his hard-earned money</a> to help <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged GEORGE ALLEN" title="Click here to read more posts tagged GEORGE ALLEN" href="http://gawker.com/tag/george-allen/">George Allen</a> get reelected back in 2006. That election, of course, was derailed by Allen's infamous "macaca" moment.  Boy, oh boy, Wilson's <a href="http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Joe_Wilson"><em>such</em> a drama queen</a>! In 2005, when <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged NANCY PELOSI" title="Click here to read more posts tagged NANCY PELOSI" href="http://gawker.com/tag/nancy-pelosi/">Nancy Pelosi</a> and <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged HENRY WAXMAN" title="Click here to read more posts tagged HENRY WAXMAN" href="http://gawker.com/tag/henry-waxman/">Henry Waxman</a> suggested an independent investigation into abuses at Guantanamo, Wilson accused them of "conducting guerrilla warfare on American troops," an act he called "incorrigible." That helps explain why Pelosi looked as if she was going to shoot lasers out of her eyes after Wilson's outburst.  He thinks women don't deserve equal pay. Yes, Wilson <a href="http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h2009-9">voted against</a> the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which ultimately passed and guarantees women are paid just the same as their penis-having counterparts. Feminists, start sharpening those claws.
 Wilson's an avid joiner and sits on a number of boards, including that of the <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged BOY SCOUTS" title="Click here to read more posts tagged BOY SCOUTS" href="http://gawker.com/tag/boy-scouts/">Boy Scouts</a>. He's also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and calls himself a Shriner, which is related to the Free Masons and requires members to wear those silly hats. <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/escapethematrix/2149921039/sizes/o/"><em>Image via escapethematrix's flickr.</em></a>  Finally, Joe Wilson's about to be rolling in money. Sure, the left hates him, but the right's already gearing up a <a href="http://www.redstate.com/erick/2009/09/09/joe-wilson-great-american-hero/">fundraising effort</a> for the mad heckler. But, sadly, this may not help him, for his opponent, <a class="autolink" title="Click here to read more posts tagged ROB MILLER" title="Click here to read more posts tagged ROB MILLER" href="http://gawker.com/tag/rob-miller/">Rob Miller</a>, has reportedly <a href="http://www.actblue.com/entity/fundraisers/19079">raked in $34,000</a> since Wilson's big outburst. Perhaps he should have held his tongue.
