Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst has led to a rehashing of South Carolina's tumultuous political past.
Most notably the digging has recalled the above scene on May 22, 1856 when the S.C. Congressman Preston Smith Brooks attacked Senator Charles Sumner in the Senate chamber after a slavery debate in which Sumner had become personally critical.
As for the latest on the Wilson saga, he's said he's through being sorry and the House is rapidly pushing to formally rebuke Wilson.
And a hat tip to Robert Ariail for digging up the cartoon.
