Murtha re-elected
CNN | 11-4-2008 | Me

Posted on 11/04/2008 8:35:23 PM PST by SideoutFred

Well, Murtha got re-elected comfortably. The only thing that will save my day is if Prop 8 passes in California. That will be close. It's winning now, but not by much.

It’s official. The good people of Pennsylvania have lost their minds.

Apparently, all the racist whites in his district embrace the label. At least they’re not hypocrits.

The voters in Murtha’s district have proved that they are not racists. They are morons.

Fundamentally the people of Pennsylvania who vote in Murtha's district proved that they are scum not worthy of our sympathy.

Al Qaida, do your worst ~ we've found a place that loves you ~ I think it's called the Pennsylvania 12th District. If you need help, use the coordinates for Johnstown.

Just leave the rest of us alone; we'll manage you from now on with sacrifices and ablations eh.

Either that, or they’ve been effectively disenfranchised by dead or imaginary people.

The people of Pennsylvania must be masochistic, or consumed with self-hatred, to elect this bozo. Sheesh, what is wrong with people?

Just goes to show how stupid the average voter can be.

Would any employer keep you on as an employee (or renew your contract, so to speak) if you had just spent the past few months insulting and belittling him?

This country is gone. November 4, 2008 - the day the American experiment of responsible self government died.

Pity really, this was one race I’d hoped we would win.

Add in the MA ballot initiative failing, and Prop 8 is the last positive thing standing.

Come on. These voters are idiots, but don't wish a terrorist attack on anyone in the nation. That's the sort of thing Michael Moore would say (and did say after 9/11).

Sick!

He called his constituents racists and rednecks. He wages political war against our military while they are fighting a war, and his district continues to vote him into office.

Words fail me.

I'm not a spiteful person.

I rarely take delight in others' plight.

Sadly this time, however, I agree with you.

If the folks in this district can't figure out just what a hateful, America-hating and (critically important) constitute-hating royalist is Mister Murtha, then they deserve him.

Ugh.

Yes, they are idiots, but in re-electing Murtha they bought into his message that our troops murdered people when they didn't.

That sort of nonsense should call down the wrath of God on any population. The folks of Johnstown deserve utter devastation.

The field commanders should start thinking about how they can finance the military out of our foreign conquests ~ which weren't conquests at all until I just now started thinking of them that way.

The US military really doesn't need Congress, particularly for it's activities abroad.

Right now I don't think I'd blame them for kind of pulling out of the command structure for a while.

It's not going to get better you know.

Well, if the country can elect an open racist / Marxist then it only makes sense that western PA would reelect someone who openly called the voters a bunch of racist rednecks and who is on video negotiating a bribe.

Principles don’t matter, issues don’t matter, character doesn’t matter. Whoever promoses the biggest redistribution of wealth gains power.

Murtha won because he really does represent that district (and a patriotic ex-military conservative doesn’t).
