Democratic Congressman a Disgrace, Republicans Say
Dude above is Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA), who lashed out at House naysayers during yesterday's SCHIP debate in somewhat controversial fashion. Minority Leader Roy Blunt is already calling for Democrats to denounce him post haste! And for him to denounce himself!
He questioned why the government wouldn't pay for poor kids' health care when "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." Well, it's a little more complicated than that, Pete. George W. Bush is very amused by soldiers' heads being blown off, but he really, really likes watching children die too. Decisions, decisions -- you try being in his shoes! Hope this clears things up.
