Michelle Malkin is highlighting an older video (but one I’d never seen before) of an interview with California Rep. Pete Stark that truly exposes the Congressman. This is a really telling interview in many ways. Over the course of four minutes and thirty seconds, Stark manages to deftly summarize the Democratic position on economics while at the same time belittling and then violently threatening his interviewer, knocking the University of Puerto Rico, and wallowing in a stinking pile of elitism so rancid it deserves to be a punishment in a special circle of Dante’s Inferno.
Michelle kindly reminds us:
Longtime readers of this blog are well aware of California Democrat Rep. Pete Stark (Raving Mad)’s unhingedness.
He has called a Republican opponent a “c**ksucker”, left a profanity-laced message on a constituent’s voicemail, and suggested on the floor of the House that Republicans are sending men and women to Iraq “to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.”
He’s an unrepentant basket case — and everything that’s wrong with Washington.
It should be noted here that this intellectual titan of economics is on the House Ways and Means Committee (the one that’s run by the tax cheat Charlie Rangel). This is the man who helps write the tax codes in our great nation. It should also be noted that Stark’s criteria for questioning his economic acumen (a Master’s or Doctorate in Economics) is one on which the Congressman himself falls short. Stark has a degree in Engineering and an MBA.
Pay attention, people. This is what the elites think about you, the unwashed masses.
UPDATE: Hot Air‘s on this also.
