Rep. Murtha renews call for troop withdrawl, switches to bright red Sharpie pen this time


In a letter to President Bush Wednesday, Pennsylvania Democratic Congressman John Murtha renewed his call for a withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq and warned that the United States was “in danger of breaking our military.”

Ol’ John’s going to keep calling for troop withdrawl until the troops are actually withdrawn for other reasons, at which point he’ll say, “Whew! It’s about time they listened to me!” This is known by psychologists inside-the-beltway as “the Kerry delusion”, and, tragically, there is no cure.
