IMO, if that’s the attitude of the PA GOP, then they need to go as well. Murtha is a traitor that trashes our American patriots. Anyone that allows that kind of politician to stay in office, needs to be cleaned out as well. It’s pretty pathetic that the Republicans in Pennsylvania will allow this kind of disgrace to continue.

Agreed. And I hope whoever is going to take on Murtha in 08 announces soon. He or she will need all the time and money he or she can get to even stand a chance against Old Porky.

Well! Hello, John Semmons! Greetings and Salutations!

You know what?

Hiya, Smooth. Looks like you’re pretty familiar with the satirist. I’d never run across him before but know him now. :-)

Your post and thread are more important and newsworthy than any cheapshot intrusion from some some random, irrelevant self-promoter.

Good catch, jaz/smooth. I rec’d a FReepmail categorizing it as a “paraphrase”. No mention of satire.

These elite liberal hatriotics had better pray that Iraq doesn't become a rich and free standing nation. A rich and free Iraq might hire a lot of mercs to capture and bring these war criminals to trial in Iraq for War Crimes against innocent Iraqis.

Yeah...I’m far from being a writer, I have enough trouble with spelling but somewhere long ago I seem to remember learning quotation marks are for quoting a persons exact words.

Blast from the past! I took another look at this vintage clip last night. Then I looked at the individual frames. It's even funnier when you see the look on Murtha's face that accompanied his words. He couldn't even look Russert in the eye by the end...

Murtha is such a disingenuous buffoon I can’t believe his party or his wife will let him appear on TV.

Been off FR for a few days. I have been trying to get a high speed Internet service to work. I am totally tired of the huge wait times just to load pages at FR and elsewhere.
The Earthlink service I subscribed to is a wide wireless services located in Philly. It does't work worth a *shit.
Speaking of our favorite goon from western PA. He is as I have indicated a number of times... lower then whale *hit.

Your slideshows are a classic here at Free Republic, Red.

I always look forward to them.

Murtha knew Russert had exposed him as a fool, that's why he couldn't look at Russert.

When I look at those pictures of Murtha then and the one below now, it's clear that Murtha is failing physically as well as mentally, but for whatever reasons, he can't stop himself. He's destroying himself.

Normally I would be concerned for him, but in his case I can not be. I'm far more concerned about what his words, deeds, and actions do to others.

"Well, poop."
OK, the goon from western PA is a poop head. Frigen clown should be ran out of the USA. Send him to Mexico, he would fit in quite well with the socialist down there.
Well. Earthlink claims they will finally get the Philadelphia Wireless services running by tommorow. It has been one royal pain in the butt. Endless hours better spent, have found me on their chat services, waiting on the phone for half hour stints with no human to resolve the problem etc..
It has detracted quite a bit from me responding to Freepers.
Those with high speed Internet services do not realize how long a post can take to load and view before one can even respond to a poster.
Image waiting close to half an hour just to try to few some brief video someone would post.
Perhaps in the near future I will finally get a decent service. I am paying enough for this stuff as is. But if it works it will be as fast as about the fastest alternative high speed services.
No response required. Just letting you know I have not been on the FR site the past few days, other then a few brief replies to our great membership.

You’re right, Smooth. It’s kind of sad that that happens to anyone but in Murtha’s case it’s his own fault and I can’t have sympathy for him either.

The corruption, graft and the number of people he’s hurt are things I will not forgive him for.

It won’t hurt my feelings if he’s run out of town on one of those bridges.

Thanks, smooth. I like the immediate impact of the format. I only wish there were more videos available. Keep an eye out for interesting new stuff, would you?

I can’t imagine what continues to drive Murtha. For a guy who owned a car wash, he’s come further than his wildest dreams. How much money does he need to fill his pockets? How much fun is it really to hang out with Nancy Pelosi?

I sent you an e-mail that people are expecting an important decision from Gen Mattis this coming week. If it swings our way, we’ll have to make the most of it—to keep the heat on the Evil Porker.

I make your e-mails one of the top priorities when I do computer time, but somehow I missed that one.

I'll go back and look.

General Mattis is the man of the hour now, I hope he sucks in his gut, stands up straight, and honors the Corps.

Thanks for giving me the heads up.

A map shows five thousand miles between Iraq and Okinawa--none of which would grant us overfly rights. Does Murtha possess secret technology to utilize worm holes to make a ten-thousand-mile flight "quick".

Murtha wouldn't know a "murder" or a "map" if either bit him on his ass, but his sense for treason is uncanny.

After the IO’s recommendation in the Sharratt case, there was a flurry of “Censure Murtha” (etc) activity.

But no politican picked it up as an issue and Murtha kept quiet and rode it out.

If we get the news we expect this week, I’d like to see us attack from a different angle.

Murtha only mattered because of the media. On May 30 06, for instance, Murtha was on CNN literally morning, noon, and night.

Seems to me that, when the good news comes, we should target the media, CNN in particular.

It’s still a longshot that they’ll listen. But we stand a better chance of getting their attention than Murtha’s. And there’s always a chance that liberals will turn on their former best friends and eat their own (figuratively speaking).

I don’t really have a plan in mind but thought I’d throw it out there to see what people thought.

Agreed...We should target all cable news. Though I nor many others watch MSNBC, murtha has appeared there also and they might pick up on the fact that he was dead wrong. It would be a hoot if prissy Cwissy would pick up on it. lol
