    WASHINGTON — The death of the chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee is likely to elevate U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, into his place.

    U.S. Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Penn., died Monday of complications after gallbladder surgery. He was 77. The Marine veteran who became a critic of the Iraq War was for two decades the ranking House Democrat on the defense appropriations panel.

    George Behan, chief of staff to Dicks, said he expects the Belfair congressman will become chairman of the powerful defense spending subcommittee. “The committee has to vote, but that will be the case,” Behan said.

    I don't like his social liberalness, but I agree, he is a good choice to honor our soldiers. Soldiers should not end up being homeless after they leave the military.

    Wrong again ..as usual. Libertarians aren't anti-military. We're anti-misuse of the military. Does that distinction cross your radar?

    Norm Dicks has been very smart about getting funding for Kitsap Co.....
    IE, Bummerton, Keyport, et al.......
    Washington State will get big money, CHA CHING!......
    I had no idea you lived in Libtardistan, my right wing friend....
    Well, you don't have to call me a friend, after all, the night has ears.....
    Too bad he is a Libtard at heart.....
    The problem with this state is that our U.S. reps have been around for awhile....
    I want to vote every Libtard out of office, but it will hurt this state....
    Quite the conundrum......

    Gee, I thought Navy Pride was showing well just for the fact he is willing to concede some social issues for the sake of military matters he holds up more highly.

    Your closing sentence makes no sense in light of his willingness to support this Democrat. (?!?!)
