You've probably seen most of this, but a good quick clip from President Obama's health care reform speech Wednesday night:
A short-attention-span viewer's guide:
• During Obama's "death panels" remarks, at about the 1:27 mark, there is a Sen. Jim Risch sighting. The Idaho Republican, seated next to Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, doesn't look too convinced.
• At the 2:13 mark, we hear the now-infamous "You lie" from Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C. Congratulations to Wilson, who has now become the made-for-YouTube LeGarrette Blount of American politics. (And what is it about South Carolina politicians lately? Oh well, at least it's some other state).
Wilson has since apologized: you know, like Blount did.
But really, what can you say about Wilson? Are we ever going to get back to civil discourse? I hope so, and suspect you share that hope. And, if not, maybe you're just a mouth-breathing moron.
In the spirit of better dialogue, I hope you'll comment here. If you have your own reactions or questions about the speech, I'd like to see them. We're writing an editorial on this topic for Friday.
