    I think that you are correct that Murtha was not particuliarly corrupt in comparison to others. . What he wasapapealty a master of was that he knew how to game the system. Not sure that he was the ear mark king but word is that he has molre than his share.

    I was just making the point that criticism is not necessarily negative, for example one could posit a positive judgment upon a piece of artwork and they would still be offering a criticism on said work. "Critic" comes from the Greek kritikos which simply means "able to discern".

    Critics Slam Decision to Name Navy Ship for John Murtha

    15 April 2010

    "This is a slap in the face to every service member who bridled when Murtha publicly accused Marines in Iraq of intentionally killing women and children in cold blood," the editorial reads.

    The newspaper said the honor shouldn't go to "a political hack whose most successful defensive maneuver was saving his pork-laden earmarks from surprise attacks of fiscal responsibility."
    The only thing that would make that more insulting to the military as naming a Army base after Jane Fonda.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    depends on type of ship - aircraft carrier are usually for big names --- if a president it depends who controls congress. We even have an aircraft carrier named after a Senator USS John C. Stennis ... he was Armed Serviceschair - since just after the Civil War ....also

    also Congrman Carl Vinson had a capital shipnmaed after him

    GEORGE Washington finally had a carrier named after him . yet I thinK The Reagan was named before that .... OH WELL GEORGE LOSES !!!

    Fonda was such a tremendous traitor that you can hardly logically compare Murta's rant to what the Jane did. By making the comparison of Murtha to Fonda you are making the evil that Fonda perpetrated to be diminished.

    That comparison is about as innane as the woman lib freako who complained that a billboard advertizing a strip club in CT as "rape".

    Please do not diminish the eveil that Fonda did by way overly exaggerating the Murtha quip.

    No, but Delay got run out of the Congress, and Cunningham went to prison.

    Neither Murtha nor Rangel received just punishments for their malfeasance.
