Idiot of the Week: Rep. Joe Wilson

Every Saturday here at Atheist Revolution, a new Idiot of the Week is honored. It is again time to crown an idiot, so let's get to it.

Since beginning this series, I have to say that this is easily the most obvious choice I've made: Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC). You know him as the moron who heckled President Obama during his speech before the joint session of Congress. While I am not necessarily opposed to heckling a President, even in such a forum, Wilson was factually incorrect in his accusation and has still not acknowledged this. Moreover, his own voting record on the subject reveals that he is a blatant hypocrite. For more on Wilson, see Olbermann's recent special comment below.

Honorable mention goes to Glenn Beck for the 9/12 fiasco he is sponsoring today. Evidently, Beck still hasn't tired of exploiting this national tragedy.
