Joe Wilson's Calculated Heckling

It now appears that S.C. Republican, Joe Wilson, may very well have planned his boorish heckling of the President Wednesday night. Watch how he claims he is a victim and needs cash now.

It seems awfully coincidental that he is using his outburst to raise money. I cannot think of a better way to rouse the wingnut base than to interrupt the President with a cry of "you lie." Comedian Rush Limbaugh liked it, so you know the rest of the lunatic fringe is gleefully celebrating.

Wilson's opponent raised a lot of money in the hours immediately following the incident. Wilson, however, stands to raise a great deal with the arrogant and rude behavior that is so common with his base. I would bet that there was a lot of back slapping behind the scenes after the address. I can hear it now, "You actually did it, Joe. They'll slap your wrist, but it will be worth it with all the money this is going to bring in. Your name is all over the Internet and cable news. What a great idea!"

If you want to be fair, demand an accounting of all of Obama's funds raised before he was elected. If Wilson can get money from real Americans, so what? Before you go off on this tear, check out the funds given to your messiah.
