HuffPost Blogger: Rep. Wilson Is the Poster Child for the Republican Party

Boorish behavior is hardly new in American politics, but some in the Republican Party appear to be pushing the limits.

We're speaking , of course, of South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson, who heckled the president last night when Obama spoke to a joint session of Congress. Wilson has since apologized for his outburst.

As many fact-checkers have noted this morning, Rep. Wilson was not only rude, he was wrong on the facts.

Here's an excellent critique of Wilson's juvenile grandstanding by Huffington Post blogger Robert Creamer: Wilson Is the Poster "Child" for the New Republican Party.

If the GOP sustains this rate of devolution for another 30 years, they will be a race of amoebas.
