John Murtha, dead at age 77

My condolences to his family and friends, but I can't say that I'm sorry.  The man was the epitome of what was wrong in Congress--kickbacks, pay-to-play, earmarks, ethics violations.  He might as well have been from Chicago. 

Maybe he did some good for his constituency, but he also helped bring this country to the brink of ruin in his three and a half DECADES in Congress and helped to spread the culture of corruption that's rotting Washington from the inside out.  I'm guessing this'll put the spotlight on Vislosky regarding the PMA scandal since the investigators won't have to split their focus.
