Time For John Murtha To MoveOn

This post has been bumped to the top. Scroll down to read any new posts.

If I did it right, there should be two new additions to my blogroll.

The first is Murtha Must Go!, a blog started by Psycmeister, who currently has a son serving in Iraq. He started the blog on May 21, 2006, after Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) decided to act as prosecutor, judge and jury in the matter of the alleged massacre of innocent civilians by Marines in Haditha, Iraq. Now if these allegations of massacre are true, then heads should roll. Literally. But it would be nice if Murtha, a former Marine himself, would at least wait for the investigation to conclude before screaming murder, massacre and cover-up. But then Murtha wants to be the House majority leader if the Democrats take back the House and Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker. I guess that's more important than due process and a presumption of innocence.

The second isn't a blog. It's the website of Washington, PA. county commissioner Diana Irey, who is opposing Murtha in the general election in November. Now I don't know if Mrs. Irey has even a snowball's chance of beating Murtha; he's rarely had more than token opposition in the past and didn't have even that in 2004. Still, as Mrs. Irey points out, thirty-two years is a long time. Maybe too long. And after being the first female county commissioner in Washington county history, she's been re-elected twice. Which means that her constituents must be happy with her. I wish her luck. If you want to help her out with a campaign contribution or as a volunteer, you can reach her at:
