Murtha to campaign against Republican who labeled him a 'coward'
DAVID HAMMER
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Democratic Rep. John Murtha, the decorated Marine veteran who favors withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq, will campaign against the congresswoman who labeled him a coward.

Murtha will travel to Cincinnati on Saturday to campaign for Victoria Wulsin, the Democrat challenging Rep. Jean Schmidt.

Last November, Schimdt was booed off the House floor when she delivered a message to Murtha, a Vietnam War veteran who was elected to Congress in 1974. "Cowards cut and run, Marines never do," she said.

The Pennsylvania congressman, a military hawk and close confidant of top military officials, surprised Washington last year when he called for pulling all troops out of Iraq within months.

1. Jean Schmidt = Total tool of the NEOCONS
To compare her to used nasty toilet paper---Insults the HELL out of used toilet paper.

She does compare however to vomit on a seed row bar floor--the vomit will take the comparison

10. Jean Schmidt looks like a product of Jesus Camp
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 09:10 AM by brg5001
This lady's angry, vicious mug says it all. She is completely out of control because like all neocons and wingnuts, she's at war with reality. Murtha represented a massive dose of cognitive dissonance for her, and she showed the nation her stinking ass. She belongs in therapy, as far from the levers of power as possible. I can see her winding up at some corner bar, scowling because her bourbon and Coke is so watered-down.

18. Thanks, glitch! I'm enjoying the reality-based community.
DU is one of many things that are going right in my life. I love the gestalt here. We're a nation of individuals, unlike the hideous blob known as Red State America which buys its Bibles from Wal-Mart and thinks that Jesus spent a lot of time at sporting events and was really down on common people and artists.

21. Careful, it's addictive! I stop in every hour or so to see the news
and sometimes I stay here too long for my own good! But it is like water to the parched to be among fellow reality-based people. :hi:

12. What a vicious old crone. Godspeed Rep. Murtha, a TRUE American Patriot.
All one has to do is get a good look at schmidt to realize that is one seriously unbalanced person. One also wonders how many donations she's accepted from the Military/Industrial Complex?

:bounce:
DUers in or near Cincy - the rally is at 12:45 pm, Saturday, Oct. 14, at the IBEW building,
1216 East McMillan Street in Walnut Hills. A rally, not a fund-raiser. Chris Dodd was here
several weeks ago and was excellent. Please attend!
