No, not much funny happened.

What did happen was that there was shock, SHOCK I tell you, that another person actually dared to disagree with the Obamessaiah (“You lie!”).

The news isn’t special enough to even bring up except for one thing… even after all this last summer, somehow the media is surprised when someone dares to do anything other than genuflect or just lie there silently choking on their own vomit if they disagree with the big O.

But here’s where the gravy of the story comes in:

On the House floor where President Obama spoke just a half-day earlier, two words shouted by a Republican congressman reverberated louder than the finer points of the health care debate.

House Democrats seized on House rules Thursday to demand South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson offer a high-profile apology to President Obama for shouting, “You lie,” during the president’s health care address.

Wilson called the White House shortly after Obama’s speech to say he was out of line. The White House said early Thursday that the president accepted the apology.

But that did not put the issue to rest, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, also of South Carolina, asked Wilson to apologize on the House floor in front of his colleagues. The final vote of the day was held open by Democrats to give him an opportunity to do so, but he refused.

Democrats threatened to censure Wilson absent such an apology. So far they have not done it — but even though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said earlier that a censure was not being considered, her top deputies kept it in the mix.

You get that?  Majority Whip Clyburn didn’t really want Wilson to apologize – that didn’t matter, obviously.  What he wanted was unfettered approval to beat the guy silly in public.  It was pure spite.

Wilson deserves credit for doing a good deed, instead.

Wilson apologized again Thursday morning, though he also says a massive loophole could wind up in the health care bill: no requirement to prove citizenship for health care coverage.

Among three House committees to pass bills for health reform, only one expressly bans federal funding for proving health coverage to illegal immigrants.

“The Congressional Research Service has indicated that indeed the bills that are before Congress would include illegal aliens,” Wilson said. “And I think this is wrong.”

Indeed, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service study found that the House health care bill does not restrict illegal immigrants from receiving health care coverage.

House Republican Minority Leader John Boehner amplified the complaint that without proof of citizenship, illegal immigrants could be insured.

The Dude passed on a great “You Scare Me” list from some guy named Saul regarding zerObama.

He also passed on a link to Obama’s new regulatory czar,  Cass Sunstein, and his crack-smoker ideas.  This czar stuff has got to go.  Otherwise the next thing you know we’ll have czars in running the country with absolutely no concrete political experience, like our president.

And the wording on the roll says it is easy to use!  Geez, duct tape was already easier by an order of magnitude than Redneck Sex™, how could it get any easier?

Speaking of uncomfortable things… who leads when these two dance?  Is it decided by height, body-fat, rock-paper(vodka)-scissors, or what?

Seriously, these two creep me out no matter what.
