Joe Wilsons Awesome Fundraising

The man who dared to stand on principle and tell President Barack Obama he lied, on national television, had an awesome fundraising "quarter." Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) received nearly $2.7 million in political donations, most of it after the infamous event on live television when he yelled out "You Lie."

Before discussion begins that this "disrespected" the presidency - I'll say that I'm over that. Never before in our our lifetime have we had a president stand before us so many times and lie each and every time.

Wilson's Democrat opponent, Rob Miller, reportedly raised $1.7 million in the same time period, and Democrats are vowing that Miller will succeed Wilson in the House in 2010.
