Stay classy, Congressman Murtha

Yesterday, Representative John Murtha (Dumbass-PA) took a break from slandering our U.S. Marines - whom he called cold-blooded killers - and instead insulted his own western Pennsylvania constituents:
Democratic Rep. John Murtha said Wednesday his home base of western Pennsylvania is racist and that could reduce Barack Obama's victory margin in the state by 4 percentage points.

The 17-term Democratic congressman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story posted Wednesday on its Web site: "There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area."
Chew on that last quote a second, and then behold Murtha's district map:

Let's say Murtha is right, and the voters of western Pennsylvania are as racist as he says they are. What does that say about John Murtha, seeing as how it was these "racist" voters who elected him? And if Murtha is wrong in his assessment of his constitutency (which I am sure he is), then all I can do is to wish you best of luck with your reelection campaign Congressman Murtha!

Good Day to You, Sir

See that vaguely triangle-shaped county-Armstrong Country--where I lived until I was 40? Wish I stilled lived there to vote once again AGAINST Murtha!
