Not only did Rep. Murtha call for the immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq–which essentially throws down a very big gauntlet to the ChimpyTwits and ruins what little steam Bush had in his Veterans’ Day speech–but he threw in this jab at Dr. Evil:
I like guys who’ve never been there to criticize us who’ve been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there, and send people to war, and then don’t like to hear suggestions about what need(s) to be done. I resent the fact on Veterans Day he criticized Democrats for criticizing them. This is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion! The American public knows it.
Crooks and Liars has the video, because you need to hear it. I have to admit, up till today, I didn’t know who Rep. Murtha was.
