Phony American, Dem Rep. Stark Should Resign for Remarks

Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.) caused an uproar today when he conjured up the Iraq War during a floor speech before the Democratic Congress's failed attempt to override President Bush's veto of the State Childrens Health Insurance Program or SCHIP.
"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."
In a statement, House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner said:
“Our troops in Iraq are fighting against al-Qaeda and other radical jihadists hellbent on killing the people we are sent here to represent. Congressman Stark’s statement dishonors not only the Commander-in-Chief, but the thousands of courageous men and women of America’s armed forces who believe in their mission and are putting their lives on the line for our freedom and security. Congressman Stark should retract his statement and apologize to the House, our Commander-in-Chief, and the families of our soldiers and commanders fighting terror overseas.”
The very fact that the mainstream media is not all over this story implicates them as the biased, ideologues that they deny themselves to be. I don't care that the media is so obviously biased that it will smear Rush Limbaugh with an untruth yet not report this story; it is just an affront to reason for the mainstream media to expect that we accept their insistence that they are fair.

Republicans should DEMAND Rep. Stark resign.
