The Truth about Joe Wilson’s Personal Health Care Plan

September 11, 2009

In typical hypocrite fashion we see Senator Joe Wilson opposed to any health care reform plan.   Just not when it comes to his own flesh and blood.  For you see, Joe Wilson and each of his four sons are covered by free military health care coverage.  Newsweek has the entire article.

If Joe Wilson had to PAY for his insurance coverage monthly (like the rest of us) then he might sing a different tune.  How nice it must be to have a government program paying for all of your laboratory tests, prescriptions, doctor’s visits and hospitalizations?

Once again, a hypocrite that has free, complete, life-time medical coverage stands in the way of decent hard-working Americans who want the same opportunities.  Shame on you, Joe Wilson.

How to become a Wingnut Darling by Badtux the Snarky Penguin

How to become a wingnut darling by Badtux the Snarky Penguin

Let’s say you’re a wingnut Representative from the Old South. You got a nigger President. Worst yet, you got an opponent breathin’ down your throat who came within a few thousand votes of getting you thrown out of office despite your opponent having less money for his campaign than the average Mercedes Benz owner spends on caviar each year. You need money, you need publicity, and you need it fast. What do you do?

Well, you live in Crackerville, and everybody there hates niggers. So what do you need to do? Well… that’s simple. While the President of the United States is speaking to Congress, jump out of your seat and shout, at the top of your voice, “LIAR!”.

Presto chango, you just went from being an about-to-be-voted-out has-been to hero of the wingnut base, a sizable number of whom live in your district and hate niggers and spics and thus love the fact that you just called a nigger a liar (while lying in the process of doing so, but hey, let’s not talk truth, what matters is truthiness!). Expect Rep. Joe Wilson to appear on Faux News multiple times over the next few weeks as their new hero of outrageous wingnuttery now that Sarah Palin is moving off into the sunset and Michelle Bachman is getting old (literally) and too crazy even for wingnuts to stand. And remember, if a Republican politician can tap into this wingnut base, he no longer needs the rich money men who traditionally have elected Presidents. Obama raised as much money from individuals via this new Internet-driven marketing and funding mechanism as he did from the traditional Democratic fundraisers aimed at the rich, and so the rich money men decide to keep their wallets closed because they don’t want to be associated with this kind of lunacy? No problem… just twitter and blog around, and voila!

Of course, this is just a recipe for further labeling the Republican Party as a party of lunatics, conspiracy theorists, racists, and gun fetishists who stroke their guns while masturbating every evening, but hey, that’s not Joe Wilson’s problem. He just needs to get elected in 2010. And he just improved his chances of doing so, given the nature of his district. So anyhow, I gotta applaud Joe Wilson: He may have just helped his re-election chances immensely, but he also just helped the Republican brand go even further into the gutter. Bravo, Joe Wilson, for your fine efforts in electing more Democrats in saner parts of the country!
