Congressman John Murtha of Pennsylvania died today after devolping complications following gallbladder surgery. The controversial politician was 77 years old.
John Murtha had a taste for pork, often loading bills with tons of it and ensuring that his district received untold amounts of taxpayer money for frivolous, and often questionable, items including a self named airport that has around six flights per day.
The amount of pork Murtha gobbled up in taxpayer money must have contributed to his demise as the gallbladder aids in the digestion of fats. Considering how much pork Murtha was responsible for, his gallbladder just could not handle it.
I have said a number of times that the only way to get rid of these lifers is for them to die off. I don’t wish them death but if that is the only way to get them out of office it is better if they die off sooner rather than later. I will not miss this horrible excuse for a human being.
It is sad the way his life turned out. He started as an Eagle Scout and a highly decorated Marine and turned into a common criminal.
First Teddy Kennedy and now John Murtha. Things happen in threes so who will be the third to go?
My money is on Robert Byrd.
