What should Joe Wilson have yelled at Obama? Here are a few ideas....

Joe Wilson is a tool. Not so much because he yelled at the President -- hey, if comics and umpires can take it, so can the leader of the free world -- but because his heckling was so lame.

So what should he have yelled? Here's a list of ten things that would have been better.

1) Beer me, Barry! 2) Don't Taze me, bro! 3) Who farted? 4) The only thing I hate worse than racists is minorities! 5) Dark Star! 6) Lets go Gamecocks, let's go! 7) Toga! Toga! Toga! 8) Marry me, Sarah Palin! 9) You're killin' me, Smalls! 10) Hillary in 2012!
