And the windfall goes on and on and on for Rob Miller, the South Carolina Democrat who was preparing for a rematch against Republican Rep. Joe Wilson when Wilson was moved to yell back at a live president the way other people emote to their televisions.

At day’s end Friday, Miller’s campaign said it had a 48-hour bounty of more than $1 million from 25,000 donors. Wilson’s campaign was making a big haul as well, but hadn’t yet reported crossing the seven-figure mark.
