Uhm, Nancy, you really don't get this PR stuff do you?

Last week, after Republicans stopped the veto override on S-CHIP, Rep. Stark made this comment...

"You don't have money to fund the war or children," Stark accused Republicans. "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."

After numerous Republicans called on him to apologize, Stark said it was they who should be apologizing, for failing to provide the votes to override Bush's veto.

Nancy Pelosi took the time to slap Stark on the wrist...

"While members of Congress are passionate about their views, what Congressman Stark said during the debate was inappropriate and distracted from the seriousness of the subject at hand _ providing health care for America's children," Pelosi said.

Nance... seriously, what he said WASN'T over the top. More than 70% of this country is pissed as hell about Bush's veto and the obstinate Republicans who continue to support him. Further, it's not a distraction. IT'S REALITY. We either spend money on ourselves or spend money on another contract with Halliburton and Blackwater. Which is more important, Madam Speaker?

Instead of beating up on members of your caucus, why don't you try focusing all your energies on the Republicans who are the real obstacle to progress in this country?

I saw Stark apologize on the teevee last night, as replayed by Hardball and Countdown, and was kind of sick, especially when he said he would go back to being insignificant. Is that what counts in Congress? Bullying people into insignificance when they stand up to point out the fallacy of an argument?
