The Joe Wilson Saga Rolls On

There isn't anyone who watches politics who doesn't know who Joe Wilson is and what he did. And after his "outburst" he apologized to Obama, an apology that Obama accepted.

Wilson considered the matter closed. Obama considered the matter closed. Even Pelosi said the matter was closed.

Unfortunately for Wilson, in the world of politics, it just isn't that simple.

House democrats have insisted that Wilson apologize again. To them. Again.

And they are, of course, threatening a slap on the wrist over this "outrage" if he doesn't apologize again.

Why?

Politics, naturally.

It has to be about politics. If it was really about what is right and wrong, there would be a long line of people in front of Wilson waiting for their turn to apologize.

As Michael Steele put it:

"If we are going to march Members down to the well of the House to apologize, Joe Wilson is going to have to get in line behind Nancy Pelosi, who attacked the intelligence community who protects us, Charlie Rangel who cheated on his taxes, Jack Murtha - a walking scandal, and we all know how the Democratic leadership tried to protect William Jefferson. Democrats don't want an apology. They want a side show - something to shift focus away from their government-run experiment on health care."

How true.

Joe Wilson spoke the truth, he did it at the wrong time and the wrong place. To apologize twice is outrageous. The House thinks what Joe Wilson did was wrong, disrespectful and a breach of decorum. This is an example when a conservative has done something wrong. He has to apologize twice.

Here is an example of disrespect and a breach of decorum by a liberal (Harry Reid).

George Bush was still in office, a "sitting President; “I really do believe President Bush is the worst president we’ve ever had,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” January 4, 2009.
