Michelle was liveblogging the S-CHIP debate at the time, and mentioned Crazy Pete’s rant.

Update 11:17am Eastern. Rep. Pete Stark starts blabbering about Republicans who don’t want to spend money on children, but instead want to spend it on “an illegal war” to be fought by children whom Republicans want to send to Iraq to “blow people up” and “get their heads blown up” for “his amusement.”

Stark: “Bush just likes to blow things up!!!”

Making atheists everywhere proud, I’m sure.

Well, here’s the video.

The man is a demagogic lunatic.

Update: The veto override vote has failed, 273-156.

Update: Stark thanks his natural constituency for its support.

Stark knows perfectly well that Bush gets no pleasure from Iraq casualties. He just said it for effect. That’s what they all do on the left: say what feels good at the moment. They don’t care about the truth of the statement, or the disgust and bad feelings such a statement stirs up on both sides. The concept that ideas have consequences is completely foreign to liberals. Words are just weapons that you can bash your opponent over the head with. Doesn’t matter the next day what you say, because anyway, Bush is Hitler, right?

He and Sen. Byrd are walking adverts for term limits.
