Dumb Congressman Of The Week: Joe Pitts (R-PA)

It seems he thinks peace in the Middle East relies on a dead man and a man in a coma.

With the global war against terrorism, it is now incumbent on Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Yasir Arafat to clamp down on Palestinian extremists that have perpetuated violence and to restart a peace process that has collapsed.

In case Congressman Pitts and his staff missed the memo, Arafat died in 2004 and Sharon has been in a deep coma since a stroke in 2006.

The Congressman might also have noticed when Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed Congress.

We welcome a response from the good Congressman, if he chooses to make one.

(I do recognize that form letters are the norm in politics but you’d think they could update things after 6-8 years)
