Are there plans for a counter-protest? Bet our crowd Sunday will be bigger.

How much has Iran/Syria and other Opecker Islmo Thugs paid Murtha/Pelosi for their attacks on our military and the innocent Iraqis? Thanks to Potlatch's creative skills with the graphic art below.

Your creative work below gives great insight to the mindset of the Hatriotic Murtha.

he knows he's finished,

Don't kid yourself. This is Murtha fighting back, and quite frankly - given historical precedent - their rally may dwarf ours. But all the shrieking and whining from Murtha and Cleland isn't stopping us, and it isn't stopping the Irey campaign either.

You're right, he is running scared.

Freep the rally with Irey Vets....

Looks like Murtha and his cronies are more than a little worried about Diana Irey. Organizing a counter rally a day before your opponents rally is high school kid stuff, typical of Murtha and friends.

An incumbent who is not worried ignores his opponents. An incumbent who is very worried reacts to his opponents.

Murtha is crapping cinder blocks about now. He has hitched himself so closely to the antiwar movement that he has no chance of distancing himself come November.

Yeah, everyone says that on basically every thread. But it's not gonna happen.

So we can either thrown Murtha out of office in November, or this type of behavior will increase!

And so far I haven't seen that many people willing to take a stand. Talk is cheap.

Maybe Cleland can get Code Pink to line up their fake but accurate coffins for his rally -- like they did at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Can't wait for the Tweedley Dee/ Tweedley Dumb dance. Oh wait, Max blew his own legs off for his country. (or for a beer, I can't remember) At any rate, I don't see this causing a landslide for Murtha.

I sure wouldn't bet against you on the affiliation of many at his rally to those groups. Looks like they'll have a gay old anti-war protest day of it.

Wonder how that will set with conservative Dems of the disrict?

If you were Murtha and wanted support from other politicians would you first ask people like FORMER SENATOR Cleland and Former Speaker Wright? Wouldn't you ask current leaders...like Pelosi and Reid?

I think Murtha did just that plus some 201 currently sittling congressman and 44 currently sitting Senators in addition. I think it likely that everyone he asked said NO WAY.

Only when everyone who has something to lose had said NO did Murtha ask a FORMER Senator and a FORMER Speaker of the House to support him. They are two people with names that can not be hurt by supporting Murtha.

That says to me that everyone currently in office turned Murtha down. I don't know if any of those serving in the legislature felt that they could help Murtha, but we can certainly deduce that they feel campaigning for Murtha can certainly hurt them.

There are a lot of questions about Murtha's Vietnam tour and his two Purple Hearts. From what I've read these were awarded after he got into Congress despite a lack of evidence of any injuries inflicted by the enemy. I think if he would sing a Form 180 it would clear things up. I didn't serve with Murtha but I was in the same division and our tours overlapped. I know he was a regimental intelligence officer which means most of his time would have been spent sifting paper in tent or a hut.

I'm in total agreement with you re refusals by Murtha's fellow rats to defend and back him.

He went suddenly planning to campaign for many of his peers to basically none. Then as you pointed out in this reply, he has no current member or senator running out to help him.

We both know that the members of congress use private focus groups of selected voters to get their feelings on certain critical subjects. Apparently, Murtha didn't do well in these focus groups.

Also realize a lot of Dem House members were put off by Murtha saying he would seek the Majority Leader position after the election. That rankled on two levels:

Public presumption of a win (very dangerous before it actually happens), and

Public presumption that they saw him as some kind of leader, instead of a useful idiot.

Most folks in Murtha's district 12 do not go online, do not access the Internet, do not know what the DRUDGEREPORT is, etc. Their information comes from local and state newspapers, radio and TV, which serve up Murtha puff pieces.

If I were one of Murtha's constitutents and had no alternate media Internet knowledge, Cleland's rally would hit me like a sledge hammer.

That would probably be a good idea. I see the same faces, whether in DC, NC, TX, NYC.....they travel in a pack, like the wolfs they are.

Conservative dems? Not sure there is such a thing anymore. I keep hearing it is so, but cannot fathom how any sane person looks at what the party has become and continue to align themselves with them.

The True Story of Max Cleland's Vietnam Injuries.

The 2nd of the 12th Cavalry was engaged in a combat operation at the time of this incident. Max Cleland was with the Battalion Forward Command Post in heavy combat involving the attack of the 1st Cavalry Division up the valley to relieve the Marines who were besieged and surrounded at the Khe Shan Firebase. The whole surrounding area was an active combat zone (some might call the entire country of Vietnam a combat zone). (Is Iraq a combat zone?) Max, the Battalion Signal Officer, was engaged in a combat mission I personally ordered to increase the effectiveness of communications between the battalion combat forward and rear support elements: e.g. Erect a radio relay antenna on a mountain top. By the way, at one point the battalion rear elements came under enemy artillery fire so everyone was in harms way.

As they were getting off the helicopter, Max saw the grenade on the ground and he instinctively went for it. Soldiers in combat don't leave grenades lying around on the ground. Later, in the hospital, he said he thought it was his own but I doubt the concept of "ownership" went through his mind in the split seconds involved in reaching for the grenade. Nearly two decades later another soldier came forward and admitted it was actually his grenade. Does ownership of the grenade really matter? It does not.
