That Murtha Crisis....

The race to be the No. 2 House Democratic leader turned nasty Tuesday, with challenger Rep. John Murtha accusing opponents of "swift-boat style attacks" that hark back to his days being investigated in the FBI's 1980 Abscam sting.

Murtha won endorsement Monday from Nancy Pelosi, who is widely expected to be the House speaker. But Murtha is opposed by some liberals who say they are not happy with the Pennsylvania lawmaker's pro-gun and anti-abortion record. Others say Pelosi took a wrong turn in backing Murtha over her current deputy Rep. Steny Hoyer because Murtha's record is marred by ethics questions of the type Pelosi pledged to clean up in Congress.

"I am disconcerted that some are making headlines by resorting to unfounded allegations that occurred 26 years ago. I thought we were above this type of swift-boating attack. This is not how we restore integrity and civility to the United States Congress," Murtha said of the ample press coverage of his link to Abscam and more recent negotiations he made as ranking Democrat on the Defense Appropriations Committee.

WOW!!! And From Fox News.

Ok, so I just find it funny to watch Fox News being Fair And Balanced, and supportive of our troops.

Ok, so the rest of the article gets seriously comical about this whole "stay the course" and how it is more important now that we stay with the president and stay the course.....

All Hail Great Leader!!!! For his Stay The Course Policy has helped him get his friend Rummy loose as the lead off Defeatist Cut And Runner, and if the courts go after Rummy, there is a good Chance Great Leader will be able to work on getting into the Gen. Pinochet Recovery Programme...

Yeah!!!! Army Strong!!!
