Republicans still trashing Murtha

Mark Shields has written a column about Rep. John Murtha (D-PA). Murtha has come under critcism for calling for a withdrawal of troops from Iraq over the course of the coming months.

From the personality-challenged White House press secretary accusing him of "surrender" to the clueless, but venomous, Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio, unaware of his combat record, accusing Murtha of being a " coward," Republicans made Jack Murtha the most prominent Democrat in town.

As one astute Senate Republican aide observed to David Rogers of The Wall Street Journal, "If the House Republicans want to make Jack Murtha the face of the Democratic Party, then Republicans will really be trounced next year."

This hasn't stopped rabid wingnuts like Limbaugh and Ann Coulter from unleashing their anger on Murtha. Keep it up guys.
