See Saw Stark

There's this:

Without debate, the House voted 196-173 to kill the proposal to censure Stark for "his despicable conduct." The vote was mostly along party lines, with all 168 Republicans on hand supporting the measure offered by Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. Five Democrats joined them.

But then there's this:

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."

All in all, I'd chalk it up as a minor win. Note also that Stark is 75, and simply can't serve that much longer. I'd just rather he spend his dotage somewhere other than in Congress.
