'And there shall be destruction and darkness come upon creation and the beasts will reign over the earth.'

Pete Stark apogized to the President on the floor of the House today for remarks in which he accused Bush of "sending kids to Iraq to get their heads blown off for his own amusement.*"

Sigh.

I think I can attribute my high blood pressure whenever I focus on politics to the fact that, unlike the elected Demcoratic representatives in congress, I don't function under a severe form of ADD.

How else can one explain the Democratic leadership's capitulation in the face of resolution censuring Stark introduced by none other than Republican John Boehner? The same John Boehner who just last month refused to apologize for saying soldiers killed in Iraq were paying a "small price" for our freedoms?

I just played a little game on Google. I took the name of leading conservative media personalities and congressman and did a search with their name plus the word "apologize." The results? "Democrats call for Limbaugh apology." "Democrats demand Boehner apologize for 'small price' remarks." "Critics call Coulter religious remarks insensitive."

Missing from all of that is an actual apology from any of those jackasses. Not to mention a "moveon" type censure.

What a bunch of spineless wimps the Democratic leadership is. It's just pathetic.



* That is not to say I agree with Stark's comment that Bush was getting soldiers killed for his own amusement. I think it's well established that Bush could care less one way or the other when our soldiers are killed.

It seems like most of the Democrats in Congress are spineless wimps. I live in the district of Representative Brian Baird, the wimpiest of them all. I've even voted for him, the bastard.

"I think it's well established that Bush could care less one way or the other when our soldiers are killed"-That's the sad truth.

Stark got only one word wrong. He should have used "enrichment" instead of "amusement."

Yeah, I HATE Baird. I've heard him interviewed a number of times and he's and arrogant bastard in the Joe Lieberman mold. An absolute tin ear when it comes to the issues that matter.

Don-

Yup. Either way he shouldn't be apologizing.
