The Republicans in the House introduced a resolution to censure Stark for his comments last week, but the Democrats successfully tabled it.

Stark then apologized for his comments.

I saw this on C-SPAN’s House coverage this morning.  The Republicans introduced a resolution to censure Pete Stark for his comments last week about sending young people to Iraq to get their heads blown off, etc.  The Democrats then called for a motion to table the resolution, and the resolution passed by a fairly slim majority.  Here is how the vote went:

Here is more on the vote:

After the vote was recorded, Stark got the floor and apologized for his comments.  Of course Fox News is all over the story, but I don’t want to link there.  MSNBC.com has a brief description here:
