Glenn Beck Lies!

Glenn Beck Lies!

Rep. Bob Inglis (RightOn!) got booed for explaining one way Glenn Beck sucks.

Inglis was shouted down when he asked listeners why they’re afraid of President Barack Obama — and then suggested that they stop watching conservative TV commentator Glenn Beck.

More recently, Inglis has been one of the few Republican lawmakers to view global warming as a crisis, introducing a bill that would tax carbon emissions.

Inglis has further incited Upstate activists with his vote to punish fellow South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson for yelling “you lie!” at Obama during an address to Congress.

"You Lie, Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!!!"

WASHINGTON (Associated Press) – The House has voted to admonish Rep. Joe Wilson over his “You lie” outburst to President Barack Obama during the president’s health care speech to Congress last week.

The 240-179 vote on the resolution of disapproval reflected the sharp partisan divide over the issue. Democrats insisted that the South Carolina Republican take responsibility for what they said was a serious breach of decorum. Republicans characterized the vote as a political stunt.

Wilson himself would not back down on his position that he owed the House no apology. Surrounded by Republican supporters, Wilson said Obama had “graciously accepted my apology and the issue is over.”

Here is the vote tally:

Dem: 233Y, 12N, 5Pres, 6Abs
Repub: 7Y, 167N, 0Pres, 4Abs

Total: 240Y, 179N, 5Pres, 10Abs
