On the House floor, both Republicans and Democrats repeatedly gave Murtha rousing standing ovations. There was so much praise for Murtha that one of his Democratic colleagues asked him if he still had to attend Murtha's funeral.

They blew so much sunshine up his @$$ that he could light the entire Eastern Seaboard all by himself!

Outstanding! Thanks for posting.

You won't find a better summation anywhere than her last sentence: If Republicans were one-tenth as rough with the congressman who wants to withdraw troops in the middle of a war as they are on a congresswoman who calls it cowardly to withdraw troops in the middle of a war, we might have a functioning Republican Party.

God how I wish this party would grow a spine.

The only Republican congressman who did not offer to have sex with John Murtha on the House floor was Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio.

She is the only one with 'balls'... the rest should hang their head in shame...

Excellent. I'd dispute the point that the war is half over. The war is over when Sodom's army fell (28 days, I believe). What we're doing over there now is part of what will probably prove to be a very long WOT. They aren't soldiers we're fighting. They're terrorists.

This is a point we need to drive home to keep the left in this country from perpetuating the lie that this is a quagmire, we have no plan, etc., etc. ad nauseum.

The media has made it to where any criticism of the insane poilicy of surrender is "questioning someone's patriotism".

It's the weak, overly and inappropriately respectful weinieness that made me turn in my Republican membership card. I still vote for them, and I guess that's the main thing, but I can't look at them and say to myself "yep, those are my people. I'm a Republican!" I used to in the days of Ronald Reagan, may he rest in peace with my eternal gratitude for his service in saving our nation.

It appears that what Murtha was and did as a Marine was because of the company he kept. Taken away from good and honorable men, he's a mushhead, a lacky of Pelosi and a lapdog for the Dims. Nobody questions his patriotism while he was in uniform but we certainly question his sanity since he started hanging with this bunch of cowards.

George Lincoln Rockwell, former head of the American Nazi Party

Hmph. I thought that was Robert Byrd.

"I've never heard a single liberal preface attacks on Oliver North with a recitation of North's magnificent service as a Marine."

Sing it sister. Ya gotta love Ann.

Too many Republicans have the deepseated feeling that Democrats are the true ruling class and that Republicns are only temporary usurpers who accidently got the top position. The Democrats must be constantly praised, apologized to and placated while they are in a temporary reversal.

I can't understand the republicans aversion to saying not nice things about the traitors amongst us. They are going to be accused of doing it anyway. Civility in this case appears to be cowardice.

In response to Murtha's demand for the "immediate withdrawal of American troops" -- as The New York Times put it -- President Bush called Murtha a "fine man, a good man" who served with "honor and distinction," who "is a strong supporter of the United States military." He said he knew Murtha's "decision to call for an immediate withdrawal of our troops ... was done in a careful and thoughtful way."

Just a pre-emptive strike or a diversion if you will, while they called his bluff, 403-3.

what Ann fails to realise is that if the GOP doesn't praise this man's military service, they will be portrayed as NOT doing so.

In the end, they voted to keep the soldiers in Iraq, but I guess that escapes Ann altogether.

Get her a donut also. She must've skipped Thanksgiving Dinner.

I'm a former Marine and in my opinion Murtha was out of bounds ... way out of bounds. Murtha after nearly two decades in Congress has been corrupted by the system ... any vestiges of honor he had as a Marine dissipated years ago.

Grand slam, Ann.

The only Republican congressman who did not offer to have sex with John Murtha on the House floor was Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio.

But even Jean Schmidt backed down under pressure from her own party.

It's kind of like a football game where Ohio State is playing the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind and doing everything they can to lose.

Murtha . . . refuses to release his medical records showing he was entitled to his two Purple Hearts.

This is absolutely the first I have heard about this. Talk about things that make you go, Hmmmm!

I haven't heard that Murtha actually was a bad marine, but this does make me wonder. If it's legitimate for Democrats to repeatedly ask what Bush is hiding, especially since he has released every last document, why is it illegitimate to ask what kerry and murtha are hiding?

Furthermore, this is only an issue because, like kerry's Vietnam war service, Democrats have insistently made it an issue.

When are we going to see kerry's war records? When are we going to see Murtha's war records?
