Great moments in constituent services from Pete Stark

posted at 3:36 pm on September 14, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Via Michelle, who notes that Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) isn’t exactly known for his calm, rational dialogue. However, even this seems over the top from a sitting Congressman responding to criticism from his constituents. When a man at Stark’s town hall concludes with the well-known phrase, “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining” — meaning “don’t lie to me” — Stark goes, well, starkers by the 1:30 mark:

“I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg. It wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.”

Just when you thought that the height of Beltway arrogance had been reached by Arlen Specter’s “No one is paying me to meet with you,” or Baron Hill’s “You don’t tell me how to run my Congressional office,” along comes Pete Stark to claim the grand prize by insisting that his constituents aren’t fit to experience the warm splash of his anointed urine.

This must be a new initiative from the Democrats in Congress — urine conservation.  Is urine an endangered resource on Capitol Hill?  Because we’re all pretty sure that horse puckey ain’t.

all wee-weed up?

jbh45 on September 14, 2009 at 3:38 PM

Hopefully his constituents will tell him to go forth and urinate vertically on a braided hemp next election.

Patrick S on September 14, 2009 at 3:39 PM

Oh oh! That’s what “all wee wee’d up” means!
Thanks!

donkichi on September 14, 2009 at 3:39 PM

Stark…

your lies are like a Bull that weewee’d on a stone. Forget your leg.

upinak on September 14, 2009 at 3:39 PM

Darn, someone beat me to it! :-)

donkichi on September 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

Is it legal to mail urine?

Joe Caps on September 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

Witnessing stuff like that makes me think of this:

Stark was already a loony left Democrat when I was in school in the 70s. Age does not appear to have mellowed him.

jwolf on September 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

Wow…. Obama was correct…

Coarseness from a Congressman…

Romeo13 on September 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

there are a million and one weewee(d) jokes in this.

Diane on September 14, 2009 at 3:41 PM

And yet…all these jackasses will be re-elected to office.

ramrants on September 14, 2009 at 3:42 PM

Maybe he’s really into recycling. Or something.

BobMbx on September 14, 2009 at 3:42 PM

Voters to Mr. Stark: On a scale from 1 to 10, you’re an 8.

DrAllecon on September 14, 2009 at 3:42 PM

Seriously?

Does Rep. “Not worth a crap” Starks think that he’s doing us a favor by showing up to work?

The unbelievable arrogance of these jackass Democrats.

Yes, the comment was inappropriate. But we’re lectured all of the time to “respect the dignity of the office” and then this clown act goes off like a juvenile delinquent.

I have an idea for Democrats who don’t like their constituents – RESIGN! We don’t need you.

NoDonkey on September 14, 2009 at 3:43 PM

I call racist.

Unlike some people who need new kidney’s and can not pee like those who are normal. He can pee on someone legs, and chooses not too. Does he know of how many people would LOVE to pee on his leg?

upinak on September 14, 2009 at 3:44 PM

We lost our cow,
We lost our cow,
We have no need for your bull now

So pile it up in the corner,
Pile it up in the corner,
Pile it up in the cornerrrrrrr,
It makes the flowers grow!

mechkiller_k on September 14, 2009 at 3:44 PM

Pete Stark is performing urine therapy and, thus, is very protective of his urine. No big deal here.

WashJeff on September 14, 2009 at 3:44 PM

As I was once told by a very wise man…

Its better to be pissed off, than pissed on…

Romeo13 on September 14, 2009 at 3:45 PM

Try this one:

Friggest thou, and thy steed which brought thou hence.

BobMbx on September 14, 2009 at 3:45 PM

You’ve just got to love the Dems – I mean from being crowned in a Greek temple to going around the world to bad-mouth America – and now this! Wow! Even Hollywood could not make this crap up!

Cinday Blackburn on September 14, 2009 at 3:46 PM

WHy is an ahole like this still in Congress?
He sounds like he his drunk.
He is still pissed because Toyota pulled out of California
and is moving to Texas.

If anyone in that room votes for this douche again then
they deserve to lose all of their business’s and tax base.

izoneguy on September 14, 2009 at 3:46 PM

It’s a (D) thing.

yeah, dumb.

upinak on September 14, 2009 at 3:48 PM

What in the world does he save his urine for???????

sammypants on September 14, 2009 at 3:48 PM

Yet he keeps getting elected.

Fletch54 on September 14, 2009 at 3:49 PM

But we’re lectured all of the time to “respect the dignity of the office” and then this clown act goes off like a juvenile delinquent.
NoDonkey on September 14, 2009 at 3:43 PM

Agreed, respect is commanded not demanded. Even my teenage kids understand the principal “you get what you give”. If you are respectful to me I will be respectful to you. When a person does something like this they are not worthy of respect no matter what “office” they represent.

milwife88 on September 14, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Just whisper in Stark’s ear “See you around election time”.

GarandFan on September 14, 2009 at 3:49 PM

And urine big trouble, Petey boy.

tree hugging sister on September 14, 2009 at 3:50 PM

But… will the Human Excement impact the rotating air movment device?

Because if it does… he may have a large horizontal displacemnt Upstream on Feces encrusted waterway without a means of locomotion…

The answer, my friends,
is weeweeing in the wind…

I’m just glad that cows don’t fly.

By the same token, it’s better to be a smart ass than a dumbass.

UltimateBob on September 14, 2009 at 3:58 PM

Man, the Democrats are handing an awful lot of ammunition to the Republicans for 2010. I just hope the Republicans can shoot straight.

rbj on September 14, 2009 at 3:59 PM

if he was a real manly man, he’d drink his own pee like Bear Grills on Man vs. Wild

gatorboy on September 14, 2009 at 3:59 PM

Since they keep reelecting this oxygen thief, Stark’s constituents deserve him.

OhioCoastie on September 14, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Joe Caps on September 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

I’ll see your bottle of pee and raise you a bag of fresh doo-doo.

What an arrogant a-hole.

rjoco1 on September 14, 2009 at 4:01 PM

milwife88 on September 14, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Exactly, which makes it impossible to respect Barack Obama when he regularly repeats each and every hallucination Democrats had about President Bush.

President Bush never had a bad word to say about his predecessor. He had class. Obama is a jackass who hasn’t done a thing to earn our respect.

Does the ursine mammalian defecate in the arboretum?

Was the previous Pontiff a member of a Western Slavic ethnic group?

trubble on September 14, 2009 at 4:04 PM

Stark is just just being stingy with his precious bodily fluids. You know, he even looks like Jack Ripper.

dave c on September 14, 2009 at 4:05 PM

WashJeff on September 14, 2009 at 3:44 PM

Actually, I’d say he’s just concerned with the purity of his bodily fluids a la General Ripper.

WHAT AN ARROGANT A&&hole!! Ole POP should go back there and Muff him up!! Starke couldn’t be a pimple on POP’s (insert favorite body part here)!

sonnyspats1 on September 14, 2009 at 4:10 PM

Friggest thou, and thy steed which brought thou hence.

BobMbx on September 14, 2009 at 3:45 PM

Nay, I do protest, ’tis not so! Thus it goeth:

May’st thou be frigg’d right royally, and also the steed which brought thee hither.

Mary in LA on September 14, 2009 at 4:14 PM

Forsooth!

Mary in LA on September 14, 2009 at 4:15 PM

Dear God, you can’t make this stuff up. Hollywood, please take notes. This is going to be a blockbuster movie one day. Conservatives will pack the house.

sherry on September 14, 2009 at 4:15 PM

I see said the blind man (Stark)
As he pissed into the wind…

It all comes back to me now!

mechkiller_k on September 14, 2009 at 4:16 PM

I don’t know about urine being an endangered resource on the Hill, but we do know there is obviously enough sh*t to go around.

ZeeMI on September 14, 2009 at 4:39 PM

“I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg”

Why not you big jerk, you’ve been shitting all over us for a while now.

canditaylor68 on September 14, 2009 at 4:51 PM

And yet…all these jackasses will be re-elected to office.

ramrants on September 14, 2009 at 3:42 PM

You’re exactly right, unfortunately. It drives me nuts. Everyone is dissatisfied with Congress yet all of these barking idiot Congressmen enjoy lifetime appointments thanks to the even bigger idiots in the electorate. “I’m disgusted with Congress….I guess I’ll vote for the incumbent…duhhhh.”

Django on September 14, 2009 at 4:55 PM

Now Pete has a lot of tact,he is just saving it for use some day. One thing we got to give him credit for he showed up and meeting the folks. There is a slight hint that he may still be able to hear the PEOPLE.
Whatta do you think?

Col.John Wm. Reed on September 14, 2009 at 5:09 PM

Pete must be filled with piss and vinegar.

theguardianii on September 14, 2009 at 5:21 PM

“Stark Raving Mad.”

This is way too funny. I see a new protest sign or tee shirt in our future.

GrannyDee on September 14, 2009 at 5:29 PM

i swear i would of jumped the MF’r and beat the F’r to the ground. i would NOT take that. I would have gotten real ghetto.

Lisa on September 14, 2009 at 5:42 PM

Why is anyone surprised by this?

This is what democrats think of voters: not even worth their piss.

JustTruth101 on September 14, 2009 at 5:53 PM

If anyone in that room votes for this douche again then they deserve to lose all of their business’s and tax base.

Sadly, the clowns in his District will vote for him again. It’s one of the most liberal districts in CA. He may be an a$$hole, but he’s their a$$hole.

Kalifornia Kafir on September 14, 2009 at 6:07 PM

Too funny! Hi! I’m pete stark vote for me and i’ll piss on you! Bet that wasn’t his campaign slogan.

Dadzilla on September 14, 2009 at 6:12 PM

But you WOULD dignify PRESIDENT Bush with an apology for calling HIM A LIAR in the well of the House way back when….

right….

riiiiight????????

seejanemom on September 14, 2009 at 6:59 PM

Pete Stark (raving mad) is all piss and vingear !!

Well mostly piss!

YouTube is clearly the greatest development in Congress-Constituent relations ever. Due to it being owned by google, the software needed to save the videos to local hard-drives must rank as the second-greatest.

Blacksmith on September 14, 2009 at 7:19 PM

…along comes Pete Stark to claim the grand prize by insisting that his constituents aren’t fit to experience the warm splash of his anointed urine.

Apparently Pete Stark is saving it to insert into the next big Democrat bill.

Holy cow!

The arrogance of the dems has my head spinning!

They all need a sift kick in the rear!

New Pete Stark campaign slogan:

You’re In Good Hands With Pete.

(For Rio Lindians, Urine Good Hands With Pete.)

…the warm splash of his anointed urine.

Ha!

Tzetzes on September 14, 2009 at 9:42 PM

Good lord…do these idiots even care if they get re-elected, or what?

flipflop on September 15, 2009 at 12:00 AM

This POS Stark had another “townhall” event earlier, which he actually stacked with his hacks and minions. Even in the ultra-uber-super-duper lefty bayarea, he had to get his thugs to fillup the meeting hall. Here is a clip of the local news
http://www.ktvu.com/video/20890373/index.html

He knows he can’t get away with his lies.

macncheez on September 15, 2009 at 1:20 AM

What in the world does he save his urine for???????

Where he and Nan come from you probably don’t want to know.

A vile, vomitous mass that will be reelected because California is Democrat Disneyland – all the ugliness behind a pretty facade.
