Congressman Pete Stark had that to say at a town hall meeting this past Saturday. Clearly, he hasn’t heard about the 3,500 acres in southern Arizona we essentially ceded to Mexico four years ago because it’s too violent. I’m also guessing he missed Robert Krentz’s funeral.
He didn’t stop there. His sustained ridicule of his questioners is something to behold, as well. Folks, watch this:
It’s bad enough when a representative can’t be bothered, as Stark clearly can’t. But to repeatedly and severely antagonize his constituents like this? Is that what it’s come to? Ladies and gentlemen, that video’s not a joke. That is a representative of the American people in a service occupation, arrogantly and insolently dismissing the concerns of those for whom he ostensibly works.
Who’s got the hot blue-state Daily Kossified spin on this? Who thinks Pete Stark’s a swell guy, and these damned gun-totin’ God-fearin’ teabaggin’ bloggers are just out to get him, is all, and probably Halliburton too? Speak up.
