Sorry about calling you racists, you racists.

October 16, 2008

Congressman Murtha has apologized for calling his constituents racists. 

“I apologize for making the comment that ‘Western Pennsylvania is a racist area.  While we cannot deny that race is a factor in this election, I believe we’ve been able to look beyond race these past few months, and that voters today are concerned with the policy differences of our two candidates and their vision for the future of our great country.”

Why has race been an issue? McCain nor Palin have brought up race.  It was not an issue until people like Murtha and Reid brought it up. 

On a side note, lets’s assume Murtha’s apology was genuine.  What does that insinuate about his Haditha Marine comments.  An apology has never been offered even though all charges were dropped

I would like to personally thank Murtha for enraging Western Pennsylavians to get out and vote your old ass out of congress.  McCain might just win PA.
