Some progressives are demanding that the House of Representatives censure Wilson. I have to disagree. He behaved like a disruptive schoolkid, so why measure out an adult punishment? Give him the kind of consequences he'll understand.
For his misbehavior, Joe can write 100 times:
I will not disrespect the President, the Congress, and the American people.
He can Twitter each sentence, one after another. (No cutting and pasting, Joe!) Then he can beat the erasers and clean all the desks in the House chambers. And do so in the knowledge that winging that quick, hopefully anonymous verbal paper wad at the President's head and then writing that foot-scraping, grumbling, hypocritical apology wouldn't mark you as one of the cool kids. Joe will have to deal with the knowledge that he'll never be a Fonz, or a Billy, but will always be a little wannabe who just doesn't measure up.
