More on Congressman Joe Wilson: This is a must-watch. Ann Coulter is right on point about healthcare, while Bill O’Reilly beats around the bush defending big government. Ann defends Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) for being one of the few Republicans will the boldness to stand up to the Democrats and their “chosen one.”
(Sorry, I can’t seem to properly embed this!)
Meanwhile, the Democrats are using this ridiculous incident to line the pockets of Wilson’s current opponent for Congress, raising $750,000 in emotional outrage. Republicans, on the other hand, have shown support for Wilson in smaller amounts, currently totaling $200,000:
Wilson has now taken in more than $200,000 since the outburst, during which time he has hit the radio and TV talk show circuit and launched his own fundraising effort.
It’s not as much as Miller’s $750,000 from outraged liberals, but it’s not chump change, either.
I made a donation to Wilson’s campaign yesterday. Strangely enough, his website this morning had a post entitled, “Stand with Me Against Liberal Attacks”, about how, while he was wrong for disrespecting the President and apologized, he was not backing down from the fight on healthcare or the race for his congressional seat. An hour later, the post is now down.
I hope Wilson maintains the courageous demeanor we’ve seen from his the past two days. The Democrats will make every attempt to destroy him, so it’s crucial that out party now come together in his defense.
