We sure are remorseful these days. First, Archbishop George Niederauer offered his mea culpa to the Catholic Church for giving Communion to the Sisters. Now Stark is getting in on it.

After House Democrats rescued him from censure today, Fremont Democratic Representative Pete Stark then apologized to members of the House and President Bush for his recent remark about "'soldiers getting their heads blown up...for the President's amusement." (Watch his pointed rant in its entirety here.)

According to the Chronicle,
Stark said, "On a very serious note, I want to apologize to my colleagues, many of whom I have offended, to the president, his family, to the troops," going on to say, "I apologize for this reason: I think we have serious issues before us, the issue of providing medical care to children, the issue about what we're going to do about a war that we're divided about how to end."

Bush then sent him bed at an early hour, with neither dinner nor dessert.
