"Hey, Joe! You Schmuck!"

It's December 1st, which means we're beginning to see the flood of articles listing the top ten of this and top twenty of that for the year 2009. In The Root's Top 10 Epic Fails of 2009, there's this gem:
When Joe Wilson yelled "you lie" during the president's health care speech, he should have been escorted out. During the election, Obama had to temper his temper because he couldn't afford to be labeled the angry black guy. Had he yelled out "You Lie!" during the debates, it would've been game over. I so wanted Obama to shut the South Carolina congressman down and say, "Come down here and say that to my face, Joe Wilson!" Yes, I know, Obama can't do that. And that is what I love about Obama: He doesn't have to. He's the president.
