John “Pile of Harpy Vomit” Murtha is in the news again. Seems some of the fish who swim in his wake are being investigated:
“In a statement Thursday night, the Pittsburgh U.S. attorney confirmed that offices in Windber, Johnstown and Summerhill were raided “as part of an ongoing investigation.” A second federal official said that ties to lawmakers would be examined as part of the probe.”
(Emphasis mine, all mine!)
And when I heard that he was welcoming Gitmo terrorists to be housed in his district I thought that as stupid as that idea is he at least has the courage of his convictions. Well, the first line of this story in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review fills in the missing piece of that puzzle:
“Prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay detention center are welcome in Cambria County if housing them means construction contracts for a prison and security jobs inside, at least one businessman says.”
Murtha has long known that he can call his voters “racist red-necks”, slander Marines with pure enemy propaganda in an attempt to jeopardize their right to due process, and generally hate America if he can just keep enough pork on the barbecue in his district. His voters (and since they are bought and paid for a thousand times over at the expense of the rest of the country, they genuinely are “his voters”) have no shame and will never question the chef at the all you can eat pork party.
Kiss the cook.
