Our winner this week is someone who has had the honor bestowed upon him once before. Congressman Jack Murtha is a notorious douchebag, known for his ability to bring pork back to his district in near record numbers.
But his pork proclivity is not the reason this honor is his again, it’s because of the stupidity and typical (and often ignored by the media) foot-in-mouthness of comments he made this week that, yet again, injected race into the Presidential race.
Murtha told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that voters in Western Pennsylvania are racists who won’t vote for Barack Obama because he’s black. These are the people he represents, which really lets you know not only what he thinks of his constituents, but what Democrats think of people who dare disagree with them.
There are plenty of reasons not to vote for Obama, a dislike of socialism and a love of personal liberty and responsibility being the main ones. But to liberals like Murtha, those reasons don’t exist in their heads, mostly because they live an insulated world filled with sycophants who blow so much smoke up their asses about how brilliant they are that they run risk of colon cancer and don’t spend time actually listening to the people they represent who disagree with them. Their arrogance bleeds into every aspect of their lives and they simply can’t control themselves, nor will they tolerate dissension since they don’t see it in their lives.
Murtha is a disgrace, has been since his time taking bribes in ABSCAM, but this is even over the line for him. Democrats have been playing the race card so often in recent weeks that they must have a race deck. And comments like Murtha’s are getting more and more common, though generally shrouded in code words, but Murtha, who actually is “out of touch” and “off his rocker” (unlike what libs call McCain in subtle ageism attacks), flat-out said what liberals have been hinting at.
For his bigotry and contempt for those he represents, Congressman Jack Murtha is our Douchebag of the Week.
