GOP Rep. Joe Wilson has apologized for yelling out “You lie!” to Obama during his health care speech in front of Congress:
This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.
The non-partisan organization FactCheck.org has debunked the claim that health care reform would mandate coverage for illegal immigrants
Obama said today that Wilson apologized “quickly and without equivocation” and the congressman told reporters the shout-out was “spontaneous.”
“We all make mistakes,” Obama told reporters, a day after Wilson stunned the president and his colleagues with his outburst.

Which means: a lot of the folks who you’d think are angling to run in 2012 are certainly preparing to do so, but they’re looking to and thinking about 2016….
“Don’t do it…” Whoopi calmed Sherri in a motherly way, as the tears flowed down Sherri Shepherd’s face.
I’m crying again now too almost as Sherri said that when she told her family she wanted to be a comic, how her family told her to just “get a job at the post office, because they don’t let people like us do that.”

I don’t know if anyone else found this to be weird but did you notice how Palin looked like she wanted to speak last night but wasn’t able to? Well Newsweek just reported that “Palin asked to speak along with McCain at his Arizona concession speech Tuesday night, but campaign strategist Steve Schmidt vetoed the request.” You can read more info at newseek.com on how many underhanded things were done in this campaign including how the clothes bought by Palin exceeded $150,000 and she had her staffers put it on there personal credit cards.
