The anti-Murtha

Congressman Murtha is indeed a Marine veteran with ample standing. The press is lionizing his reiteration of opposition to our presence in Iraq, and his proposed surrender to Islamofascism

But Rep. Sam Johnson of Texas, a veteran and former POW in Vietnam, is forthright in his support of our war for survival. We salute Rep. Johnson, who has the chops to stand up to Rep. Murtha's rather scurrilous suggestion that only war veterans are qualified to speak on issues of war.

Too bad the MSM will not give any attention to our hero of the day, Rep. Sam Johnson.

A big hat tip to Mark Levin, one of whose alert listeners tipped us to Rep. Johnson's stand.
