While all this makes good political theater, its effect in November is questionable.
ROTFLMAO!! Okay, so then why all the media interest? And all the Murtha attacks?
FReepmail me if you'd like on or off the Irey/Murtha ping list.
Her total is just a few dollars shy of $7,000, and the site hasn't even been around a week yet.
Stopped reading right there. Continuing the propoganda that Cleland is some sort of a hero.
Is rightroots.com solely for Republicans challenging RATs? Or does/will it include conservative incumbents? Just wondering.
Rightroots elected not to support incumbents, since they generally have a much easier time (understandably) raising money.
The this the same Max Cleland who blew himself up playing with a grenade?
Of course they're furthering the propoganda that Cleland is some sort of hero. That's supposed to give Jack Murtha some sort of credibility. They must think the voter's in this district are majorly stupid.
Read on. But slip your tootsies into your boots. It gets pretty deep.
Diana Irey bump!
Old traitors never die, they just Murtha way....
Furthermore, we want to wish Lamont luck in his bid to take Leiberman's seat...
ROTFL...Were they misrepresenting the facts, just inept or avoiding another lawsuit? We'll never know because Murtha's minders won't write a script for him to explain.
>>His position actually is that the U.S. and its coalition troops have done all they can do and that the war can not be won militarily<<
I don't believe that's quite what Murtha said... I remember it being significantly worse than that.
Lets be kind. Call it a "work accident".
jeez , you'd think by now, I'd learn to "preview" my posts
Hi, a new guy here.. but I seem to recall that there is more to Murtha than meets the eye:
From The Washington Times:
Last June, the Los Angeles Times reported how the ranking member on the defense appropriations subcommittee has a brother, Robert Murtha, whose lobbying firm represents 10 companies that received more than $20 million from last year's defense spending bill. "Clients of the lobbying firm KSA Consulting -- whose top officials also include former congressional aide Carmen V. Scialabba, who worked for Rep. Murtha as a congressional aide for 27 years -- received a total of $20.8 million from the bill," the L.A. Times reported.
In early 2004, according to Roll Call, Mr. Murtha "reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the city of San Francisco." Laurence Pelosi, nephew of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at the time was an executive of the company which owned the rights to the land. The same article also reported how Mr. Murtha has been behind millions of dollars worth of earmarks in defense appropriations bills that went to companies owned by the children of fellow Pennsylvania Democrat, Rep. Paul Kanjorski. Meanwhile, the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan campaign-finance watchdog group, lists Mr. Murtha as the top recipient of defense industry dollars in the current 2006 election cycle.
