Assigned Reading: Murtha’s Earmarks Keep Airport Aloft
(FROM: The Washington Post)
For a detailed explanation of what exactly has gone wrong with Washington, D.C. and indeed the United States of America as a whole, look no further than Jack Murtha. The Pennsylvania Democrat is the very definition of bureaucratic excess in a nutshell and, not to mention, is an ungrateful, traitorous, Class-A jerk to boot.
Set aside, for a moment, the absolutely disgusting sentiments of a bitter old liberal painting United States Marines as executioners and cold-blooded killers. For just a moment, look not how he misrepresents the nature of the brave men and women who lay their lives on the line for America overseas, but instead how he misrepresents his constituents in the Keystone State and, by extension, every man, woman and child in this country.
Look at the corruption. Look at the self-dealing. Look at the favoritism. Look at the waste.
Read this piece from start to finish, tally up the taxpayer costs in your head as you go along, and tell me that you’re not as outraged as I am.
