U.S. Rep. John Murtha dies at 77

Complications after surgery.

No word yet on his status, nor the nature of his health care plan.

Re: Murtha in the ICU

Some disgruntled Lockheed execs probably got to him.

Re: Murtha in the ICU

I wish him well, but I'm damn sure glad he didn't prevail in his attempt to be the House Majority Leader. That's one that Pelosi didn't win.

Re: U.S. Rep. John Murtha dies at 77

I wonder if they'll name a pork-barrell airport that next to nobody uses after him. Oh wait.

I have nothing but contempt for the man but I guess it sucks when anyone dies.

Re: U.S. Rep. John Murtha dies at 77

Now he can wrongly accuse some angels of killing and raping people.

Good riddance.

That wasn't very PC was it?

I will give him for serving this country admirably until he lost his mind.

I wasn't a fan of his political career. But the guy volunteered for Vietnam and came back with the Bronze Star, two Purple Hearts and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. I have a tremendous amount of respect for that.

Re: U.S. Rep. John Murtha dies at 77

Apparently there was a 'screw-up' in the gall bladder surgery - at least that's what is being reported

Re: U.S. Rep. John Murtha dies at 77

The King of Pork projects died?? good.

How about that airport (named in his honor) that he helped create with $150 million of taxpayer money that services TWENTY people a day.

See what happens when the government provides your health insurance?
