Shortly after the vote, Rep. Stark said in front of cameras, the public, the American people, MSNBC, God, and everybody,
"You don't have money to fund the war or children, but you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement."
People can have differences of opinion and Stark certainly is entitled to his. But, his comment today goes far beyond a difference of opinion. It is vulgar. It is disgusting. It is childish. It is so many words that in my own anger I cannot even think of them. Saying the President wants our Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and Coast Guardsmen to be killed, that he gets his jollies by having their "heads blown off" is beyond any degree of decency.
Stark is disgrace and should be condemned and censured. The Democratic Party and leaders should also condemn Pete Stark and do so immediately. Democrat rhetoric has long ago crossed the line of common sense and any form of good manners and decency. If the remarks of Pete Stark are not condemned by the Democrat leadership, and don't hold your breath, then the whole of the Democrat Party needs to be condemned. Stark, at the very least, owes the American public an apology. Better would be a letter of resignation effective immediately.
Goddamn Pete Stark. Goddamn anyone who does not Goddamn Pete Stark.
