Teabagger South Carolinian Congressman heckles President, spikes searches, bad press for GOP

South Carolina Republican tea-party-type Congressman Joe Wilson heckles President Obama with "you lie"

... and he boost his opponent's fund-raising, on the order of $500,000 in one day.
See this story from Congressional Quarterly Politics at
"'You Lie' Fallout: Foe Hauls in Quick Half-Million":

Rob Miller, Wilson's Democratic challenger for the 2010 contest for Wilson's seat, reaped half a million dollars in the 24 hours following the Congressman's disruptive yell.
Some observers believe that this incident could garner critical donations that would help Miller in 2010.

If this is the case, we would wish for more such incidents!
