Thought you had heard it all from U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn?

Jim Clyburn says Rep. Joe Wilson should issue a ANOTHER separate apology! No that is not a typo and or have we been hitting the bottle, but apparently someone has… And Mr. Clyburn we agree, right after you apologize to all the poor black children you uh… [fill in the blank] with your 10 million dollar 277 pedestrian walkway from no where to no where! You know the one that bears your name that not even you have walked across. By the way, uh that was not paid for by tax payer dollars from the now defunct Highway Trust Fund was it?
SC’s top Democrat asks another Wilson apology

U.S. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn says Rep. Joe Wilson should issue a separate apology to the House for heckling President Barack Obama’s health care address or face a public disapproval from his colleagues.
The South Carolina Democrat says House rules call for decorum during a joint session of Congress, and Wilson’s apology to the White House doesn’t suffice.
Wilson blurted “You lie!” when Obama said illegal immigrants would not qualify for federal money for health insurance.
Obama has accepted his apology, and Wilson says he believes that ends the matter.
Clyburn says if Wilson doesn’t apologize by Tuesday, he believes a resolution will be introduced. He says members have proposed a censure or a reprimand, but he’s calling for a disapproval.
