Just Wondering

Just Wondering, when did rudeness become heroic?

I can think of a couple things wrong with what Steve King is saying. First of all, Joe Wilson may be an officer, but he is clearly no gentleman. Gentlemen have manners.

Secondly, he says “I don’t think there’s ever been a President comes to the House of Representatives as a guest of the members of the House and makes a declaration like he did. I mean, the President threw the first punch.”

The president threw the first punch. Apparently by having the temerity to, um, make a speech. Which no president ever has ever done ever in the history of everything.

I'm not familiar with Steve King - mostly because he's from Iowa so who cares? - but I suspect he may be a bit of a nincompoop.
