Double standard?

Congressman Joe Wilson has been criticized, rightly, I believe, for calling Obama a liar on the floor of the Senate. Gateway Pundit has a video of Congressman Pete Stark similarly calling Bush a liar on the floor of the Senate. Apparently, the Stark incident didn't draw nearly the outrage that Wilson's boorish behavior did. Funny, that.

Much worse than Stark's accusing Bush of lying, however, is his suggestion that we're sending innocent kids to Iraq "to get their heads blown off for the President's amusement."

Think any of the Democrats calling for Wilson to be disciplined made similar calls to discipline Stark for his outrageous remarks?

Nah, me neither.
