Naming Congressman Joe Wilson’s Memoir on Twitter

joewilson23.jpgLast night, South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson became instantly famous (and infamous) after yelling “You lie!” during President Barack Obama‘s health care speech in front of Congress.

Sarah Palin scored a book deal after taking an antagonistic stance against the Democrats, and Wilson will probably land his own memoir soon. He was the most popular topic on Twitter last night, and a number of Twitter writers composed titles for his future book. AbeC suggested “How to Go from Unknown to Hated in 30 Seconds or Less.” Another Twitter blogger offered two titles: “You Lie” and “Living My Andy Warhol Moment.” AnnDouglas added “Etiquette for Dummies.”

What would you call Rep. Wilson’s memoir? Leave your title in the comments. If you need inspiration, here’s a link to his apology: “This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the president’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”
