    I was just watching Wolf Blitzer's interview with Representative Rohrabacher, who is Chairman of the Oversight and Investigation Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and was appalled by utter disregard for tact and respect. Regarding his denial to enter Afghanistan, not only did he call 'Karsai' (yes, he incorrectly spelled the Afghan President's name) a puppet of Pakistan, but he referred to the Pakistans as 'Paks'. Of course, he may very well be right about Karzai (note the spelling) being a puppet of the Pakistani government, but to refer to the Pakistani's as 'Paks' is unacceptable for someone representing the United States of America and California, including my hometown, no less. I do not want to assume that Representative Rohrabacher is a bigot, but tone and use of language leads one to assume so. Should he wish to represent his district and the United States in a more acceptable fashion, he should understand that the language we use can and often does matter more than what we actually say.
