Bullshit. Murtha took the initiative on his own to present an alternative plan, which was supposedly what everyone was waiting for the so-called opposition party to muster. To imply that he was pushed by Cindy Sheehan, ANSWER, and the party is nonsense. If anything, the Democratic Party didn't do nearly enough to back Murtha's motion on the House floor.
Uh-huh. You may recall GOPUSA as the site which, while coincidentally named after the Republican Party, scrupulously avoided specific mention of it so as to retain the veneer of objectivity (for drooling idiots, I guess). You may also recall them as the umbrella organization overseeing Talon "News" Agency, which introduced the one and only Jeff Gannon™ -- and his $200/hour, 8" cut throbbing man-meat -- to an unsuspecting world.
Really, it's all just a bunch of happy coincidences. The only thing missing is that jowly cow at the '04 Republican convention, with the purple bandaid on its chin.
Yeah, that's the despicable cunt.
Well, I guess that settles that, doesn't it? Couldn't be that Bailey's just a co-opted tool with an axe to grind; couldn't be that Murtha really did say something along that line, out of some misplaced false humility, as many people are wont to do.
I don't give a fuck if Murtha really did just get a scratch on the cheek from flying shrapnel or whatever. He went, and not only that, Vietnam was his second war. The guy dropped out of college to volunteer for the Korean War. Okay? He didn't get a fistful of weasel deferments, and he didn't get his daddy to pull the right strings to keep him stateside in the National Guard (which is obviously no longer the cushy stateside gig that it was 35 years ago). Kerry went. Al Gore went. Whether they were in the rear with the gear or not, whether they were wounded as grievously as the Fightin' Keyboard Kommandos think they should have been or not, they fucking well went, and that should be the end of it.
Just the fact that these animals are willing -- yet again -- to smear a good man who has the temerity to challenge an administration of deferment cowards, further exposes the rotten core of their vaunted ideology. Yeah, they're all about honoring the troops; funny how they never are them. Funny how, out of 11 Iraq War veterans currently running for Congress, nine of them are Democrat.
I'm sure it's all just coincidence, like everything else.
