John Murtha’s Plea

Filed under: 2008 Election — DRJ @ 6:57 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

From the Instapundit:

“MURTHA’S IN TROUBLE: Veteran Democratic Rep. John Murtha (Pa.) has sent out a last-minute plea for $1 million to save his hotly contested seat, endangered by his own remarks describing his district as racist.

If you’d like to help his opponent, the website is here.”

Heh. I second Prof. Reynolds’ notion that helping Murtha’s opponent, retired Army Lt. Col. Bill Russell, is a good choice.

  1. Spread the wealth! Democrats have plenty already, see how much they give to Obama?

  2. It would be nice to get this piece of debris out of office.

  3. I’ve already donated twice. The guy is a good bet to win.

  4. Chickens coming home to roost? Will he be around when the surrender now crowd redeploys the Genghis Khan-like troops to Okinawa as he’s urged?

    What does it say about a majority of voters in his weird-ass shaped gerrymandered district when they saw him on FBI tape and STILL reelected him over and over?

  5. How crass Murtha is. Knowing full well he deeply offended, and possibly irreparably so, his constituents and still he has the unmitigated gall to ask for money. He acts as if elections can be bought…

    If Dems were true to their leader, they would not contribute because they have clearly been informed that this is a post-racial election and obviously Murtha did not heed his leader.

  6. Yikes. Knowing full well he deeply offended, and possibly irreparably so, his constituents and still he has the unmitigated gall to ask for money.

    Should read: …knowing full well he may have irreparably offended his constituency, he still has the unmitigated gall to ask for money.

  7. Yes, if Michelle Obama can spend $447 for a lobster and caviar snack at the Waldorf Astoria on the taxpayers, then the Dems can surely afford to spread the wealth. Obama and his leftist illuminati ideals are going to ruin this country.

  8. He acts as if elections can be bought…

    Baracky is proving that they most certainly can be bought …

    Jeff – That story about Michelle has been shown to be quite false.

  9. Murtha doesn’t need the money for the campaign, he needs it to add to the millions he’s already stolen from the taxpayers. Maybe Hussein O will loan him an internet link to the terrorists world so he can collect a few million per hour.

  10. We need to demand a special prosecutor to start an invertigation of Hussein O’s campaign financing on Nov 5th, win or lose. That is one criminal that needs put away for life.

  11. A Murtha loss would be “freaking sweet.”

    Can someone denounce me for being racist, please?

  12. 11, you are an anti-military racist. You know Murtha was in the military before he started attacking the military?

  13. John Murtha is an obvious political obscenity which can only exist in the shadow of a partisan press, which only endures in the bosom of a corrupt political party, and which can only prosper in the service of deception and self-aggrandisement.

    He is “politically obscene,” yes. Great way to put it.

    Unfortunately, even if he leaves, there are many more.

    Thanks for the denouncement, PCD, I needed that!
