WASHINGTON (CNN) — Rep. Pete Stark, D-California, is facing fire from Republicans for comments on the House floor Thursday suggesting Americans are dying in Iraq for President Bush's amusement.
Sharply critical of Bush’s veto of the children's health insurance legislation, Stark said Republicans are spending money "to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough … to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement."

Stark later issued a statement saying, "I have nothing but respect for our brave men and women in uniform and wish them the very best,” said Stark. “But I respect neither the Commander-in-Chief who keeps them in harms way nor the chickenhawks in Congress who vote to deny children health care."

And the heavens opened, and great winged angels descended through the clouds as trumpets filled the hearts of men with joyous calling; children made merry in the streets, and Rush Limbaugh fell into his own anus, and Dick Cheney barricaded himself inside a Virginia liquor store and demanded the world cave in to his demand for immortality...it was said that during this time the president, George W. Bush, upon hearing the Stark Truth, screamed like a banshee and tore wildly at his clothing and struck madly at his Secret Service agents, then stumbled into the October night of the nation's capital, heaving and clawing at the air, covered in mud and feces, commander of nothing, a broken clown of despair, the last King of America.
Or maybe I dreamed it.
