Any Shorter and the Wilson Resolution Would Fit on Twitter

The House resolution on Joe Wilson is pretty darn brief. The resolution, in its entirety:

Whereas on September 9, 2009, during the joint session of Congress convened pursuant to House Concurrent Resolution 179, the President of the United States, speaking at the invitation of the House and Senate, had his remarks interrupted by the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson; and

Whereas the conduct of the Representative from South Carolina was a breach of decorum and degraded the proceedings of the joint session, to the discredit of the House:

Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives

disapproves of the behavior of the Representative from South  Carolina, Mr. Wilson, during the joint session of Congress held on September 9, 2009.

A mere 108 words.

UPDATE: Campaign Spot reader Michael writes in, “That’s it? For goodness’ sake, if I were Joe Wilson, I’d vote for it.”
