Thank you, Rep, Joe Wilson? Rep. John Shimkus Escapes Attention For His Stunt During President's Address to Congress

With all the attention focused on Rep, Joe Wilson's "You Lie!" outburst during the President's address to Congress, Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) got away with standing up and walking out in the middle of the speech, as reported by The Swamp:

"Congressman Shimkus was frustrated that the president was not offering any new ground and left with just minutes remaining in the speech,'' spokesman Steven Tomaszewski said today in response to our question about the late-speech walk-out.

Some might consider him lucky in that regard, but knowing Shimkus' nutter history, I'd wager he isn't too pleased that his attention grabbing stunt didn't get the noticed he had intended.
