“The American people are fed up with the political games in Washington, and I refuse to participate in an effort to divert our attention away from the task at hand of reforming health insurance and creating new jobs.”
Wow, Joe Wilson. You played a political game by calling a U.S. President a liar to his face, then issuing a non-apologizing apology, and then refusing to apologize to your fellow Congressmen for flouting the institutional civility rules of that body. Now you want to lament the existence of political games? You led the effort to divert our attention away from the task at hand of reformig health insurance with your attempt to sidetrack the discussion into immigration reform, and now you want to lament such efforts?
