I wasn’t going to talk about Murtha’s death under the, If you can’t say anything nice rule.

However they are lionizing his opposition to the war on Morning Joe this morning. Joe is now alluding to not perfect: (doesn’t mention Haditha and graft and Abscam by name) only says it in passing.

Just “made some mistakes” Joe, I suggest you take a look at Instapundit’s archive on John Murtha.

Bottom line, lets forget the graft, the empty airport and even Haditha, if we followed John Murtha’s advice we would have lost in Iraq instead of won.

End of story.

    Nothing good? He was a veteran who served his country. Can we start with that?

    Graft is just how things are done in Congress. I don’t think that’s such a great thing, but as far as Murtha was concerned, he had a job to do, to help his district, and he did it.

    And he didn’t do anything wrong in Abscam. The undercover Feds literally waved money under his nose and he wouldn’t take it.
