Of Minutes, Murtha, and Mudville...

I was going to give my analysis of last Sunday's Murtha segment on 60 Minutes, Sunday; but why bother when The Mudville Gazette has already done it so much better?

Hat tip: Gateway Pundit. (Check out the link trail).

Oh, and don't forget to check this one out:

Funny that Representative Murtha didn't pull that one out of his pocket as well, when he read the soldier letter to Mike Wallace.

Patriotic Mom comments.

I don't think people should start questioning his service and medals from 30 years ago...let's just call him out on his total lack of respect for the armed services now and his out and out lies about what those troops think and say as far as how it's going in Iraq.

Oh, that's right, Mark Seavey did, but neither Moran nor Murtha would answer him.

Anna, I completely agree. It's his judgment of today that is in question. And that's exactly what Sgt Seavey was attacking. Furthermore, if you go to the Gateway Pundit link, I think, if I remember correctly, what is pointed out is that many conservatives ARE NOT "swiftboating" Murtha. (As if "swiftboating" is somehow related to smears and lies). It's a perception being pushed by liberals. What good marketers they are! They have for decades fooled many into believing the Democratic Party is the Party of the "little guy" and for minorities and the poor; and now they are push-peddling around this "culture of corruption" catch-phrase. Haha...I'm proud to be a member of it!

Hmmm, they spout the "culture of corruption" comment so often that I think, as Shakespeare would say, they doth protest too much.'re it! ;) (sorry, we just seem to be swapping comments quite a bit this evening...uh, morning!)

Ha...reminds me of my friends when we e-mail each other back and forth and they keep trying to have me get instant messaging.

Well, I commented on your comment in the Reagan, the ball's back on your side of the court!

And yes, "culture of corruption" can apply to either party at any given moment.

Patton said that Purple Hearts were only a sign that the enemy had hit it's target! That's not a direct quote, but what he said was to that effect.

I think of Murtha as a traitor.

Regarding your Reagan post, I left a comment on the comment section of that post and I saw where Mike said he didn't know how to insert pictures into text with Blogger. I was going to go to Mikes to tell him how to copy and paste the picture to wherever he wanted it in the text, then to delete the version up top after copying it, but for some strange reason every time I go to Mike's blog my pc freezes. I don't know if it's a problem with his blog or my pc. So I'm hoping you will be kind enough to tell him how to put pictures where he wants them in his posts.

If he has his e-mail link turned on, I'll send him an e-mail. I just thought of that.

Murtha said the Iraqi's say they will get rid of the insurgents after we leavem and it seems to me that he is suggesting that we test that theory by pulling out. Do we really want to take that chance? I don't.

I don't think Mike has his e-mail turned on...I remember trying to look for it before. He probably doesn't have it up because of the moonbats out there.

I did leave him a comment for you. And, yes, I do find that his page loads slower than most places. Actually, I think it might be the blog template. I've noticed that others with the same type also loads a bit slow. Not too bad, but still noticeable. Before, I thought it might be videos, audio, or other stuff on the page that was causing the slow-loading.

It's too bad, since he has some great posts. And you are missing out on the Reagan celebration!!!!

While I seldom agree with John McCain, I think he had a most reasonable and gracious explanation for Murtha. "He's an old man."

I think I heard Hugh Hewitt make a similar comment back in November when he was first getting media attention. Hugh said he was a fine man, or something to that affect, expressing bafflement and that he was just getting old, or something.
