The Man Who Called Murtha A Coward

Is a Marine Reservist who's apparently never seen active combat. More importantly, he's just another Republican politician. In her incendiary comments on the House floor, Jean Schmidt was not reading from a letter sent by a combat soldier (despite early news reports that implied otherwise). She was channeling Republican Danny Bubp, an Ohio state representative from the 88th District (i.e., bumfuck), who, according to his own campaign bio, has held elected office in Ohio since 1994 and never got any closer to Iraq (or any other theater of combat, for that matter) than U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida. Shame on the AP for implying otherwise.

What kind of a Marine sends another person (a girl, no less) out to call another Marine a coward? Not the bravest guy in the platoon, for sure.

Not even "a guy in the platoon," for that matter. My sources indicate Danny Bubp never left the country he was serving for any reason (military or otherwise), and we all know Jean Schmidt's record of public service is, ahem, less than polished. Welcome aboard, Justin.
