This week, President Obama delivered a speech about hard work to America's schoolkids... and no one's head exploded. He then delivered a speech about the hard work of passing health care reform to a joint session of Congress... and Rep. Joe Wilson's mouth exploded. Wilson apologized to the president, then, painting himself as a victim, used the incident to fundraise -- taking in over $750,000 since Thursday (his opponent has raised over $1 million). The South Carolina Congressman's campaign website says he is "PASSIONATE ABOUT STOPPING GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE!" But, apparently, not so passionate that he won't accept the free, top-flight government-run health care he gets as a retired Army National Guard colonel. Wonder if his insurance plan covers getting his hypocrisy removed?
