The NYTimes's Maureen Dowd believes Joe Wilson's "You lie" outburst was racially motivated:

The normally nonchalant Barack Obama looked nonplussed, as Nancy Pelosi glowered behind.

Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t.

But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!

Really Maureen? YOU heard "boy" at the end, and you're calling HIM a racist?

It's not racist to call the President a liar when he claims we can give insurance to everyone in America during a recession without increasing the deficit. If you think that's racism you need to stop and check your own prejudices first.
