Sen. Jim DeMint on Rep. Joe Wilson and the "You lie!" heard 'round the world…
"When I heard this 'you lie' comment, the President turned and looked at me and I said ‘Oh no, they think it’s me,'" DeMint told the crowd. When he learned it was Wilson, DeMint said he immediately became concerned that his friend could face a firestorm of criticism that could threaten him politically.
But, DeMint said, "a couple days later, after he raised a few million dollars off of it, I was thinking 'why didn't I say that?'"
Then, maybe somebody would pay attention to me.
I'm so lonely. I'm dying inside.
