John Murtha - R.I.P.
We acknowledge that we've haven't exactly been admirerers of Pennsylvania Congressman John Murtha who took earmarks to a new art form. With that said, Murtha passed away today and our condolences go out to his family and friends.
Interestingly, only moments after we got news of Murtha's death, the Rothenberg Political Report send us an e-mail noting that his district has now been moved into the 'competitive' category for this fall's election given that McCain actually carried it slightly.
Somehow, there is no time in politics to contemplate those who pass away......
