For those who think Republican Congresswoman Jean Schmidt’s comments to John Murtha were outrageous, I’d like you to try this little experiment:
- Find some comfortable running shoes
- Locate a prostitute
- Call him a slut
Now that you’ve caught your breath, find someone of moral character.
NOTE: IF THIS EXCLUDES YOUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY AND FRIENDS YOU MIGHT GOOGLE CONSERVATIVE TO FIND ONE.
Repeat Step Three.
Notice the difference? No need to run? Let me explain.
Like John Murtha, my son and many friends, I am a marine. I was also a career cop. Being called names is part of what defenders of the First Amendment endure. It comes with the territory. On the other hand, if I were a coward and someone reminded me of it, I’d get pissy too.
Until cowards and traitors make themselves a protected class, the terms are useful to identify certain Americans. Like Queen Gertrude, Democrats outraged by Congresswoman Schmidt’s free speech doth protest too much.
