Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) responded to President Obama's claim that no bill he would support would provide coverage for illegal immigrants by shouting out "You Lie!" during last night's tedious speech before Congress.

I agree with the sentiments expressed on the matter here at National Review by Kevin Williamson.

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
