Many, even among his own constituents, view Rep. Murtha as a doddering, corrupt, venal, increasingly senile old fool with less real patriotism than an Asian cockroach munching clotted kim-chee in the gutters of the Hong Kong food courts. But that is a base canard and nothing, but nothing, can be further from the truth. Seen correctly, Murtha is a great American who, if he sees further into the future than his fellow Democrats, is only because he stands on the shoulders of dwarfs.Really unfair. I like kimchi.
