    The way they go after Murtha, time after time, really pisses me off.  It also makes me really wonder about his run for majority leader in Congress, and how that was squashed, and how so few people ended up voting for him.  It really makes me wonder.

      wouldn't understand, it's called an exit strategy.  Just in case the GOP can smear the war on Dems, you wouldn't want the lead opponent to be the majority leader.  He's no less effective where he is and although he lacks the title, it was Dems way of hedging their bet (and usual weak knee-jerk reaction).  But perhaps we're boiling this frog and just bringing it on slowly, converting GOP votes slowly, laying the rope slowly and tightening it ever so slowly.  Have faith.  They won't move as fast as we like, so we just have to make sure they keep moving in our direction.
