    I feel like it did break some unspoken rules of civility during these things. You can boo, but you can’t heckle. Or something. It struck me as strikingly out of place.

    I’m pretty sure Biden took that guy out back later.

    I don’t know who’s face was better: Obama’s “I’ll bury you” side eye, Pelosi’s “I thought I buried you”, or Biden’s “I didn’t want to have to bury you” head shake…

    lol, yes i noticed their expressions as well.

    I want to look back into the archives and to find out if a President ha ever been called a liar by a member of congress during a high profile speech.

    The heckler was Joe Wilson of, you guessed it, South Carolina. As of a few minutes ago his website had crashed.

    You can boo, and maybe you can heckle, but calling someone a liar for telling the truth ought to be out of bounds.

    I am with Leigh. I think the best part is the fact that Biden looked like he was going to mush Joe after the cameras were cut off, lol
