Hats off to seven House Republicans!

In a rare action, the House rebuked one of its members Tuesday for shouting "You lie!" at President Obama last Wednesday, ending a week-long standoff during which Democrats demanded a public apology that the lawmaker refused to give. On a largely party-line vote, 7 Republicans joined 233 Democrat lawmakers in passing a "resolution of disapproval" against Joe Wilson, a S.C. Republican for interrupting Obama's speech last week. While he clearly deserved the action taken by his collegues, it's nice to see at least seven GOP spines in Congress. Here is the final vote tally.
