Thanks to David Folkenflick from NPR for brightening my day by posting this video on his Facebook page. I think Rep. Joe Wilson’s (R-SC) break of decorum last night would have been out of place even in the rough and tumble of British Parliament.
UPDATE: I was correct — Folkenflick added this update:
No accusations of lying allowed on floor of House of Commons: Words to which objection has been taken by the Speaker over the years include blackguard, coward, git, guttersnipe, hooligan, rat, swine, stoolpigeon and traitor. The Speaker will direct an MP who has used unparliamentary language to withdraw it. Refusal to withdraw a comment might lead to an MP being disciplined.
