Murtha - Calling 911
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, October 30, 2008

It appears that Democrats will make gains in both the House and Senate, but the one race that I'm watching with interest is that in which John Murtha is engaged - and apparently losing. He's running against a 28 year Army officer and veteran of the Iraq war who, to put it mildly, leaves Murtha with little to crow about in terms of his own resume.

So, being in trouble at the 11th hour he turns to who for help? Superman? Nancy Pelosi? Karl Rove?

Nope, the "General Betrayus" bunch - MoveOn - with a "buddy can you spare a dime" appeal:
Dear Friends,

After decades of fighting for this country and our troops, I am up against the right-wing attack machine again.

Because of my work to end the Iraq war, they have thrown hundreds of thousands of dollars behind my opponent, who lives in Virginia with his family, not in my district in Pennsylvania. Now, I am suddenly being outspent 3 to 1.

They are up to the same old tricks, "swiftboating" me again as they did two years ago. So I am asking people who have stood with me on Iraq to stand with me again to stop them in their tracks.

Can you chip in $25 for me and a few other candidates at the link below?


This is a real emergency—with just 6 days left.

People like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity are calling me a traitor and worse.
Ah, all the key words - 'right-wing attack machine', 'swifboating'. And all the key right-wing bad guys.

To the rednecks in PA - do us all a favor and take this clown off the national stage, please. Oh, and before I forget Mr. Murtha - the Hadita Marines send their love and wish you a happy "redeployment" to retired life. They mentioned something about a little bungalow on Okinawa.

After all the @$$ kissing he’s been doing with the far left, it would be justice if they dumped him... and would be an object lesson about loyalty among Democrats. It seems it’s not unlike the loyalty among thieves.

Awww, poor baby. Hey, I know a cat that’s flush—maybe he can spread the wealth?

You wouldn’t want to stand too close to this pathetic SOB during the next thunderstorm. Or on the next clear blue day or at any time, just to be on the safe side.

Bill Russell is having a last campaign rally Saturday, if anyone is in western Pennsylvania. Blackfive is organizing to get people out there, along with Vets for Freedom, Right to Life, and I forget who else. Info here:

Murtha must have mis-heard the Marine motto...

He seems to think it’s nunquam fidelis...
