Last night was the President Obama’s healthcare speech, and I missed it because I was
being shallow and watching ANTM. Don’t judge me preoccupied with other things. But before I knew it, Twitter went nuts because someone burst out randomly “You lie” at the POTUS during his speech. come to find out, it was Joe Wilson, South Carolina congressman. Well, I watched watched the speech afterwards *BIG UPS TO DVR* and yeah, it was pretty outta pocket for the outburst.
There HAD to be a sternly-worded letter to Joe Wilson for his momentary tourettes. And since I was
being lazy working on other things, I decided to get a guest blogger to write the letter for me. I asked my newest blog find, Michelle Huxtable to grace AweLuv with some words. Why? Because’s she awesome. And methinks her letter rocks. Enjoy. And check out her blog. – Luvvie
Dear Congressman Joe Wilson,
You want to yell, “You Lie!” at President Barack Obama? Is that what we’re doing nowadays? That’s what’s really good? Errors in syntax and grammar aside, what were you thinking? If you’re going to yell out random things at a Presidential Address, you might want to say something relevant.
Mention that the Blueprint 3 came out. Discuss the T-Pain/Fabolous/Jay-Z beef. Talk about Ellen Degeneres taking Paula Abdul’s spot on American Idol. Anything would have been more substantial than “You lie!” What does that even mean? President Barry was talking about illegal immigrants not getting health care and you choose that moment to yell “You Lie”? Where were you when Bush was talking about WMDs? Or when Al Gore claimed he made the Internet? Or when Tila Tequila said Shawne Merriman choked her?
Blow, you turned Congress into a street corner in the hood. Your “You lie!” was the equivalent to “Yo mama!” and the Democrat “Boo!” response was equal to the *fist to the mouth* “Ooooohh dang yo! He talkin’ about yo moms!!”

Nancy Pelosi’s looking like “Who you calling a ha-b*tch?” She’s bout 5 seconds from clutching her pearls.
Grandpa Joe Biden: “See? Why you gotta come at my prez like that?”
Prez O: “Fool, do you know who I am??? Does Barack have to slap a bitch?”

This is not British Parliament. We don’t say “here, here” and yell random things. You may look a little like Tony Blair but you, sir, are not.
Assistant Manager of McDowell’s Joe, I’m not only going to need you to issue a public apology. I’m going to have to ask you to wear #chrisbrownsbowtie. You deserve to be mocked for your statement and for your choice of clothing.
Joe, you’ve not only ruined your political career, you have stopped millions of people from being effective. By being the number one trending topic on Twitter, do you honestly think people are getting homework done? Preparing for work the next day? Making their children’s lunches? No. Children will go unfed. Notes will go unstudied. And spreadsheets will go un-collated. I hope you’re proud.
Assistant to the Junior Manager of my local gas station Joe, you have taught me to trust my instincts in not trusting Joes. Besides Joe Jonas and Joe Biden, I don’t trust y’all. I didn’t trust Joe Jackson, Joseph McCarthy, or Joseph Stalin and I refuse to trust you.
But all kidding aside, I thank you JoJo. With less than 50 Black members of Congress out of 535, I thank you for opening a seat to allow a young inner-city youth to take your place. It was a selfless act.

Luvvie’s Addendum: I’d also like to award Joe Wilson a top-of-the-line “FOOL SADDOWN RAHT NAH” gift basket. I’mo even throw in a free “SHUT YO ASS UP” floral arrangement.
