Dear Joe Wilson
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!!”
