John Murtha’s not mincing words

· Edgewise, Paleoblogs, Republicans

Here’s an amazing snippet a friend just emailed me. This is from a new MoveOn.org exhortation written by Congressman John Murtha:

A year ago when I presented my plan for Iraq, I did it to provide leadership and
protect our troops. The Republicans have spent their time name-calling while the
situation for our troops in Iraq gets worse.
They’ve tried to smear me, other veterans, Democrats, you and anybody who stands up
to them. Well, let me say one thing right now: screw them. Those gravestones at
Arlington cemetery don’t say Democrat or Republican on them.
We are all patriots.
