Joe Wilson: From Easter Island to South Carolina?
EVER SINCE Rep. Joe Wilson shouted "You lie" at President Obama in a congressional setting not without its own share of liars, there have been reports of unease among his constituents in South Carolina that his class of politician is giving the state a bad name. That quickly translates into worries among the more rational residents of his state that it's bad for business. Wilson, like Gov. Mark Sanford and some other notables, has done it again, accusing Obama of being responsible for the H1N1 vaccine shortage after Wilson voted not to fund it. I didn't know very much about the guy until he turned to show business with moronic rants. But it does encourage suspicion about whether he might have descended from the great stone heads on Easter Island.
