The bravest man in Congress

Representative John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a former Marine and a Vietnam vet, has called for immediate withdrawal from Iraq. His 8-minute video segment on the CNN website is the most cogent, damning, and bravest response to the Bush-Cheney madness so far offered by a member of Congress. What the cowards and shills at CNN left out was Murtha's response to a reporter's citation of Cheney and Hastert questioning his (Murtha's) patriotism:

"I like guys who've never been there that criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments [Cheney] and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done."

They are evil men and he has called them out. It's damning him with faint praise to call him "The bravest man in Congress," but he is.
