"Joe Wilson introducing Mark Sanford to the House of Representatives. #strangerthanfiction."

- What Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., tweeted as Rep. Joe "You lie!" Wilson, R-S.C., introduced former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford at his swearing-in ceremony Wednesday evening on the floor of the House. "Will all members rise and the representative-elect raise his right hand?" House Speaker John Boehner instructed. Sanford did, but was facing the crowd instead of the speaker. "Mr. Sanford," Boehner said, calling to Sanford to turn around, getting a few laughs from the chamber in the process.
