The liberal turd from the Bay apologizes for his disgraceful remarks and cries about it afterwards:
WASHINGTON — Democratic Rep. Fortney "Pete" Stark of California apologized Tuesday for comments he made last week suggesting President Bush was sending troops to Iraq to get their "heads blown off for his amusement."
The apology came after the House voted 196-173 with eight members voting present to table a resolution introduced by House Minority Leader John Boehner censuring Stark.

Though the motion amounts to a failed vote, Stark addressed fellow lawmakers afterward to apologize.
"I want to apologize first of all to my colleagues, many of whom I have offended, to the president. his family, to the troops that may have found (offense) in my remarks as were suggested in the motion that we just voted on, and I do apologize. ... With this apology I will become as insignificant as I should be and we can return to the issues that do divide us but that we can resolve," Stark said to applause.
After his mea culpa, Stark walked walked off the floor to the Democratic side of the chamber and for at least five minutes stood sobbing while fellow Democrats gathered around him. Reporters close to the Speaker's Lobby were not able to hear why he was crying.
There isn't any doubt in my mind that Stark meant every word he said when he attacked Bush, and only apologized because the Democratic leadership refused to stand by him. And while we know now that Stark is nothing but an insignificant blathering idiot, the fact that only 5 Democrats joined in wanting to censure Stark is yet another victory for the despicable George Soros-run Left.
