Flashback: Rep. Wilson Also Had To Apologize After Attacking Strom Thurmond's Illegitimate Daughter
Wilson shouted at opponent on Live TV
“I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease....He is an absolutely reprehensible person.”
— USA Today columnist and Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveaux on Justice Clarence Thomas, November 4, 1994 PBS’s To the Contrary.
Henry: When you were asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" whether or not you could support Justice Thomas to be chief justice you said quote, "I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I think that his opinions are poorly written." Could you name one of those opinions that you think is poorly written?
Reid: Oh sure, that's easy to do. You take the Hillside Dairy case. In that case you had a dissent written by Scalia and a dissent written by Thomas. There--it's like looking at an eighth-grade dissertation compared to somebody who just graduated from Harvard.

Go, Joe Wilson!
They're calling him a racist... Oh My God... why so upset, is tht so far beyond the pale of the language that's being tossed around by both sides these days..? The left and yes, especially the right.
In 2003, Wilson called it "unseemly" and a "smear" for the mixed-race daughter of Sen. Strom Thurmond, Essie Mae Washington-Williams, to identify the longtime South Carolina senator as her father after his death.
After a public outcry, he reversed course and said he had the utmost respect for Washington-Williams.
As a state senator, he was an outspoken opponent of efforts to remove the Confederate flag from atop the South Carolina Statehouse.

God help us if there is an Obama clone/ look-alike somewhere, and God help is if TPTB decide to use him in an awful scenario I won't put in to words.
We've been programmed perfectly to rip each other to shreds if anything happens to Obama. And once more the people that are playing us will get away scott-free.
It's their formula, their game, of course they're setting us up like a crook sets a deck of cards. And the ones that buy into it, unable to see how they'rebeing played, really are little more than sheep.

I don't know if this cat is a racist or not, nobody does, no, not even you can say with any credibility that he's not a racist.
But I think we can all see that he's an A@@............Hole.
Not to mention the fact that it seems that the right is making more noise about the implications of racism, than the MSM is making of his rudeness and disrespect of the office of President.
Anything to feel insulted, huh guys... LOL
This righteous indignation is so phoney.
The Senate's top Democrat, Harry M. Reid of Nevada, called President Bush a "loser" yesterday just about the time Air Force One was touching down on foreign soil. Reid immediately called the White House to express regret.
Two weeks ago, Reid essentially called Bush a liar when Vice President Cheney said he agreed with Senate Republicans about changing the filibuster rule. Reid said that violated a commitment Bush had made to stay out of the fight. Reid said that it "appears he was not being honest."
