Who's the most disgusting wingnut?

I know it's tough, but I always wax nostalgic over punk loudmouth Congressman Fortney Stark (D - Rubber Room).

Fortney needs a checkup from the neck up.

What brings the boy to mind is Stark voice mail on Iraq vote winds up on Limbaugh, Net:
Dow faxed Stark a letter Thursday afternoon saying he was "appalled" by Stark's vote against the resolution, noting many of Stark's constituents are serving in the military with pride and distinction. Dow wrote that Stark's vote shows he doesn't support troops selflessly serving their nation, and "is a disgrace to the people of this district who have elected you."
Stark soon left Dow a phone message saying that Dow didn't know what he was talking about, and that Stark believed someone had put Dow up to writing the letter, perhaps even writing it for him: "I doubt if you could spell half the words in your letter."

"But I'll call you back later and let you tell me more about why you think you're such a great, goddamn hero, and why you think that this general and the defense department who forced these poor enlisted guys to do what they did shouldn't be held to account -- that's the issue," Stark said.
At least Fortney didn't call him a fruitcake.
Dow gave Stark's taped message to KSFO 560 AM, which aired and discussed it Friday. The station also posted it on the Internet and sent it to Limbaugh, who played it nationwide later Friday. Limbaugh said Stark spoke "typically as a liberal would to an upstart, peasant, dare-to-speak-to-a-congressman citizen."
Listen to the pond scum here. For an odious old fart, ole Fortney's sure a macho guy.
