I'm Sorry (But So Is Brenda Lee)

Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) hurled the following comment at his GOP colleagues Thursday as the House was debating overturning President Bush's veto of the State Children's Health Insurance Program bill:
"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."
Republicans and their water toters in the media are, naturally, having yet another case of the vapors and demanding an apology from Rep. Stark.

We at TWDQ also call on Rep. Stark to apologize, but we've gone the extra mile and prepared a free apology that the congressman may use:
I'm sorry for my poor choice of words during Thursday's debate. Instead of "for the president's amusement", I should have said "for the president's illegal and immoral war."
There you go, Pete. Give the people what they want.

Do the Limbo Rock

The conservative blogosphere is gleefully beating up a 12-year-old kid, so we pose This Week's Discussion Question:
At long last, have you no sense of decency?
Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Boy, talk about burros and excavations..."

What Does it Take?

This and this bring us to This Week's Discussion Question:
What the hell does it take to get a guy impeached around here?
Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Don't be silly. You know what it takes."

I Thank You

We interrupt This Week's Discussion Question to offer our thanks to the crews at TBS and TNT for doing an ace job of covering the baseball playoffs. We are well aware that future rounds will be turned over to the clowns at Fox, who cover baseball with the same competence as they do news. That is, a competency somewhere between Lew Ford's baserunning ability and Rush Limbaugh's courage and veracity.

Enjoy it now while you can. Yes, even you Yankees fans who are now down 2 games to zip to the Native Americans. (We interrupt This Week's Discussion Question's Interruption to say: WOO-HOO!)

We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question.
