An interview with Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina. When asked about which member of the Congresss he would want to be stuck with on a deserted island, he chose Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. He recounted his experience in 1997, when he had an accident and almost died. Wilson's favorite household chore is working in the yard, while his least favorite is taking out the trash.
