John Murtha Dies

Pennsylvania Congressman John Murtha (D) is dead.

Washington Post has more here.

As special election should be interesting:

Without Murtha in the 12th district, however, the special election will be seriously contested. Murtha's district is the only one in the country won by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) in 2004 and by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, according to Republican sources, and that trend line coupled with the volatile national environment for Democrats ensures Republicans will heavily target the contest.

More later.

Whoops, Did not see Jay's post below. Or Kim's

Get to Pennsylvania and enlighten those gun and bible-clinging rubes regarding your "dear leader" strategy for making their lives better.

If you do, I guarantee we'll win, which ironically WILL make their lives better, though only marginally until November.

Still, a step forward is a step forward!

Would it be appropriate for the burial to be at his multimillion dollar boondoggle of an airport?

I'll grant him this much - he did what he thought was right for the country and his party - though I think at times he got the two of them confused.

RIP, Rep. Murtha. I think you did more harm than you ever knew, or would have cared about if you had known.
