I think Mr. Murtha is just going goofy, as older people sometimes do.
For many, many years, he was in Washington, under the radar, bringing home the pork and all of a sudden he's a kos-head socialist peacefreak.
Really, he needs to see his doctor, maybe he's having a side effect from his medications and he can turn it around.
I am certainly glad you added that qualifier "sometimes," as I and other old codgers here, might take umbrage to that comment. lol
You might have saved yourself a little grief if you would have simply added "liberal" or "democrat" as we all know that the majority (regardless of age) are mad as hatters.
When I read his remarks about his being "Conservative," I literally laughed so hard that I fell off my chair.
What a joke, he is.
I wonder if he is just saying ANYTHING outrageous, having become a darling of the CodePink "people." CodepInk, which gave $600,000 to Fallujah's insurgent community.
It was when facelift Pelosi started whispering sweet nothings into his ear that he became the freak he is now.
