'Baby Killer' Heckler Fesses Up

Civility in Congress hit a new low on Sunday when a Republican congressman shouted “baby killer” at Rep. Bart Stupak, the Michigan Democrat who struck a compromise with President Obama on abortion language and eventually voted in favor of the bill. So who was the heckler? People were quick to note that the shouter had a thick Texan accent. Now, Texas Republican Randy Neugebauer has admitted it was him. He claims that he was not calling Stupak a "baby killer"; he claims that he was describing the legislation.
