Welcome to Congress.
Oh, you thought this was going to be something condemning Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst during President Obama’s health care address last night? How it was completely against the decorum of presidential addresses, in which the only acceptable response to anything the head honcho says is to either stand up and clap like the live audience of “According to Jim” (they had a live audience, right?), or fall asleep in your chair after Tweeting “Don’t like president, hungry 4 tacos.”
In case you missed it…(just skip to the one-minute mark)
Well, it would be, if the Democrats didn’t show the same lack of class during President George W. Bush’s 2005 State of the Union address…
Do we need to send everyone to the quiet corner again? It’s not like the opposing sides don’t get their cranky responses immediately after the president is done with their address, whether it be in the form of pundits or Rep. Charles Boustany (who may be a doctor, I forgot after the thousandth time he mentioned it). Is it Christmas Eve? Are they so excited to have their voices heard that they just have to blurt their discontent? Do they wake up super-early that morning, creep downstairs in their footie PJ’s and sneak a peek at a leaked transcript of the president’s speech?
To say “sheesh” is, I think, the only way to sum it all up.
