My obvious pleasure in my demeanor when I loudly announced it clearly surprised not only those I was with and those at the table next to us, but it caught me off guard as well.
Although I wasn't one of his constituents, I'd donated to Bill Russell in the past in an attempt to get this old-school corrupt Democrat out of public office, and was angered at the lack of honor of Democrat "leaders", such as "General" Wesley Clark, who campaigned to keep that old scumbag in Congress because he faithfully carried Democrat water.
Anyone who calls that dirt-bag a "patriot" has a perverted view of what the term means.
And anyone who claims that you shouldn't tell the truth about him just because he's dead is either a fool in general, or a foolish Democrat who would feel no such compunction if he were a similarly symbolic Republican.
Your views mirror mine in regard to the traitor murtha. He was a lying corrupt POS when he was alive and now in death he is just a dead POS.
