US. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher was one of seven House Republicans who voted this week to formally rebuke Rep. Joe Wilson for shouting “you lie” during President Barack Obama’s Sept. 9 address on health care to a joint session of Congress,” according to the Daily Pilot.

The other Republicans who voted to rebuke Wilson were Cao, Emerson, Flake, Inglis, Jones, and Petri.

As President Jimmy Carter put it, Wilson is a racist.  Carter is right.  Look at how folks flipped out when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift during a recent televised video award show.  But the same folks are sending money to Wilson.  Both West and Wilson are racists!  But one of them has raised $1.5 million since his racist outburst.

“The congressman, we learned, belonged to the Sons of Confederate Veterans, led a 2000 campaign to keep the Confederate flag waving above South Carolina’s state Capitol and denounced as a “smear” the true claim of a black woman that she was the daughter of Strom Thurmond, the ’48 segregationist candidate for president. Wilson clearly did not like being lectured and even rebuked by the brainy black president presiding over the majestic chamber,” according to Maureen Dowd.

The Total Buzz interviewed Rohrabacher, who told them “I think that unfortunately my Republican colleagues got sucked into playing low brow politics and we should have taken the high road.  The high road is you maintain decorum in the House and you don’t want to have a president treated any differently than if Ronald Reagan was delivering the speech.’’

I don’t often agree with Dana, but this time I do appreciate his vote.
