Speaker Says: Forget Wilson
September 10, 2009
Kudos to Nancy Pelosi for swatting down the push by some in her caucus to sanction horse's ass Joe Wilson for his huffy little outburst during last night's joint address. I understand the Dems' are peeved. More than that, Congress is an incredibly self-important club that makes much ado about affronts to its traditions and rules of decorum. But any distraction from the health care debate is risky business right now. And that's even before factoring in the real possibility that juiced-up Dems would overplay their hand and wind up turning Wilson into a celebrated martyr.
