Rep. John "Jack" Murtha (D-PA) is a highly decorated, 37-year Marine Corps veteran who remains close to the Armed Services, closer (it is said) than any other member of Congress. He was always considered a Conservative among Democrats -- until his turn against Bush/Cheney's Iraq War, inception to prolongation.

Then the Republican noise machine came out and branded him and his very reasonable plan for withdrawal "loony."

Well, after several days of Nettertainment linking to too much poison, it's refreshing to hear this very wise, very energetic and with-in Congressman speaking plain sense on getting out of the War.

The GOP news media and the supposed objective media that takes its cues from it are the filter. How nice to hear Jack in his own voice. It won't be easy, but it is encouraging.

Here's to a Happy Monday.
