It is a new day in America, because Shouty Joe Wilson has been slapped in the face with a House "resolution of disapproval" and $1.67 million (as of this typing). Choose your own outburst here: "That'll show him!"/"Canonize him, with money!"
So what's in this resolution of disapproval, which the House passed 240-179? Will Joe Wilson be subjected to forty lashes of Steny Hoyer's tongue? Will he be put in solitary confinement and forced to watch Nancy Pelosi's cat videos?
Whereas on September 9, 2009, during the joint session of Congress convened pursuant to House Concurrent Resolution 179, the President of the United States, speaking at the invitation of the House and Senate, had his remarks interrupted by the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson; and
Whereas the conduct of the Representative from South Carolina was a breach of decorum and degraded the proceedings of the joint session, to the discredit of the House: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior of the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson, during the joint session of Congress held on September 9, 2009.
Wait, wait, where's the part about disciplining Shouty Joe? Where's the line that says he's getting punished?
Why, it's after the jump…
Awww, there it is!
Seriously, though, what does FoxNews.com know about this secret House torture chamber, and why haven't they told us about it before?
