i may vote after all

I really wish I had a "NONE of the Above" lever to pull in a voting booth instead of actually having to pick one of the many assholes running for public office today. Maybe I'll write my own name in, just as a protest vote.

Bejus knows that I don't want this idiot holding any reins of power. I've shit better turds in my life than that guy is as a human being.

"If we prevail as I hope and know we will and return to the majority this next Congress, I have decided to run for the open seat of the majority leader," Murtha, a Pennsylvanian, said in a letter sent to House Democrats.

"I would appreciate your consideration and vote and look forward to speaking to you personally about my decision," Murtha said in the letter.

My aching ass. This guy is an ex-marine, and I thought those folks carried bizarre notions of duty and honor from boot camp through the rest of their lives. I musta been wrong about that. Chesty Puller would spit in Murtha's face.

Murtha, a hawk on military matters who started out as a supporter of the Iraq war, soured on the conflict and went public with his criticism last November, calling for an American troop withdrawal.

"Withdrawal" is something his daddy shoulda done years ago, before he sired this prick for a son.

I wonder every day... why do we elect so many total pricks to public office today? Are they really the best we can do?


"withdrawal is something his daddy shoulda done years ago, before he sired this prick for a son..." an ALL TIME classic line!

There is no such thing as an ex-Marine, that is a title only worn by those who made it through the process, and then claimed the title under false pretenses. Go here for Disavowed Hey I don't know how to make it a link, so cut and paste.

Those loser pieces of shit aren't the best this country has to offer.

Granted, they are few and far between, but there are people (men primarily) out there who are intelligent, honest (almost to a fault), who have the character and the cajones to get things done, men whose word means everything to them... the kinda men we should have to choose from to run the country.

It's just that...
Not many guys like you run for office.

10% Rule (10% of anything is atypical) applies, so don't lump in shitball murtha with the rest of us Marines.

If he needs helping eating a bullet, plenty of us Marines and former Marines will help him chamber the round.

I agree with Stevie. It's not only that the good guys don't run, but would we really vote for them? I think many people choose the bad guy for the illusion of a better life in the short-run, rather than vote in a good guy who will actually take time to repair some damage. After all, there are a lot of welfare voters out there, and there are lot of voters that are not on welfare with more heart than brains.

Murtha's opponent, Diana Irey, seems better than most of the candidates running, plus she's easy on the eyes. A link to her campaign website. I broke open my piggy bank and sent her a check. Heck, maybe Kos is right, the internet is changing politics. The only problem is Kos's candidates like Murtha (or Daschle) are going to be losing more, not less, as a result.

I've thought the same thing myself everytime we've had an election. If these assholes are the best we have to offer at any given time, then I guess we deserve whatever they dish out. I'm sick of voting for the lesser of 2 evils, instead of a candidate who stand for and delivers on what he believes. I had a civics teacher in HS who would've been a perfect president -- I am tempted to write him in every time I vote. And no, I didn't vote for Ahnold, but look what the Democrats come up with to go against him. Shaking head in disgust. But please don't give us back to Mexico -- I finally own property in this fair state after living here for 56 years! My parents have been here for 85 (i.e. life), my son-in-law's family since before statehood. California would be fine if we could just send everyone who has arrived in the past 50 years back where they came from!!! IMHO.

I recall hearing that Murtha "started out as a supporter of the war" is a lie perpetrated by the MSM. I haven't Googled it all up but I'm pretty sure he's been against it from the start and this "he was initiaslly a supporter" is cover fire from a friendly press corps.
