Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif) appears to have a curious way of showing respect: he urinates on your leg. At least that is the impression from this YouTube clip where Stark tells a critic of the health bill: “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg, it wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.” He is not alone in retaining his “precious bodily fluids.”
Stark’s response came after a man at a meeting with senior citizens in Fremont said “Mr. Congressman, don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.”
It is not clear if Stark’s hoarding his urine for friends results in a large storage area or whether, due to a large number of respected friends, his signs of respect . . . well . . . regularly flows to the right people.
Of course, any jars in the Stark residence are likely dwarfed the the collection of Howard Hughes.
Of course, this makes those who are respected by Stark feel a bit uneasy on the possible signs of affection. Usually, a nice note will do.
