Actually guys I think you mistaken, you know who is regretting this incident the most? The Republicans.
Joe Wilson's outburst just reminded everybody what a loud, shrill, rude, boorish, mean-spirited group the rightwing still is, and that they havent changed one bit since the Bush Administration. They demonstrated this not only when the had some political momentum going but on national TV in front of Millions of viewers. The GOP looked like the drunk peanut gallery at a ballgame while Obama remaining calm and collected looked like the only adult in the room. I read in yesterdays paper that the Internet exploded in fury as it gave those conservative Democrats a reminder of who they were getting in bed with on healthcare and it gave the Public a reminder that this is the party of the Town Hall hooligans, not of civilized gentlemen in polite disagreement.
I also heard that Wilsons democrat opponent, Rob Miller in SC raised $700,000 in the past 48H.
In any event, it was a win for Obama. You can be sure that Obama just sent a fruit-basket to Joe Wilsons Office.
