I shook Joe Wilson's hand yesterday
and told him it was my privilege to do so.  I told him that no
one has been more courageous in responding to the emergency in
Washington.

His gracious response was that we are fortunate to live in a
country where people can speak out.  

Closest I have ever come to asking for an autograph.

1. Damn! No autograph.
You should have had a handy copy of the Constitution with you.

:)

2. I met him last year (3 days before his op ed).
I sat beside him at the Eisenhower Foundation Policy Forum in DC. He introduced himself as "Joe" Wilson.

Brilliant man!

Where did you meet him?

3. wow, cool. I've tried to find his biz address to
send him a thankyou/good luck card.

Encouraging that this story has life in it yet, eh?

I was there, too. I had my picture taken with him.

I think he's fantastic and a great speaker.
