Murtha Quote About the ‘Surge’ Was Completely Misunderstood.

Well as many bloggers now know, U.S. Representative John Murtha stated yesterday that after his trip to Iraq, he now thinks that “the ‘surge’ is working.”   See (Murtha:  Surge is Working) This from a man who has stated in the past that we are failing in Iraq and that we are dellusional to think we can ever win, etc..

So how can we reconcile these seemingly opposite opinions?  Well, I have contracted some staff members from a little known organization called S.C.U.D. or (Spin like Clinton Until you Die).  These guys are great–they look at the story within the story to find the truth behind the words spoken by prominent Democrats.  These were they guys that told Clinton to question the meaning of “is”–brilliant.  So I hired them and they have determined that Murtha has in fact been taken out of context.  Of course he did not mean that the “troop surge” is working, his words had a deeper meaning.

As you know, Mr. Murtha is not a young man.  Recently he has been having some, well, issues that needed to be addressed.  While in Iraq he tried to help his problem in a couple of ways.  First he tried hauling two bathtubs up to a hillside view of the Persian Gulf but that didn’t work:

Then he tried watching some old, but bad, Bo Derek movies like this classic gem:

But alas, that did not work either.  Then he heard of a soft drink that was discontinued in 2001 but because Iraq’s government is so “dysfunctional” Iraq just got in a “new” shipment.  That softdrink is:

A little known fact about “Surge” told to Mr. Murtha by a kindly local farmer (who has 19 wives and is 98 years old) is that it was developed in Norway under this original label:


By golly, once old jolly Murtha heard about it he rushed out and drank an entire case.  Later that day, after a lovely dinner at the farmer’s home and a few hours of entertainment it was time for the interview wherein, Mr. Murtha said (in its entirety)

Holy Jihad, that Surge is definitely working!

Thanks to SCUD for helping us all rest easy and know that Murtha is still the giant liberal wack-job he always was and that someone should bring back “Surge.”

    Now I understand. And that’s saying something since I didn’t really know who John Murtha is, what he said or why he said it. But if you say he’s still a liberal whack-job, then, by God, I believe it.

    P.S. I’ll have to try that Surge some time.

    I appreciate your faith in my assessment. Believe me–he defintely is. He has said more than Harry Reid has to demoralize our troops and our nation about the war effort. He is simply a nightmare–now the democrats have to deal with him stating that the surge is working–I’m sure Nancy Pelosi is so enraged that her face is purple.

  4. In the CNN interview Murtha changed his mind within 30 seconds about whether we could win ‘militarily.” I hope you and every other blogger who can’t stand Murtha will join “Bloggers 4 Russell,” so that Lt. Col. Russell can send Murtha into involuntary “early” retirement. You can do so by leaving a comment at my site ( You can also do it by sending me an e-mail at Lt. Col. Rusell’s site is:

    Stephen, those people changing their minds every 30 seconds or so is not new. Not a peep from old Reidy poo these days though huh. Pelosi, she’s kinda quiet, as is Dean.

    Could it be that indeed, though they want to deny it, the surge IS working???

    Great blog. For a lawyer. 🙂

    Hey Jenn: Thanks for stopping by–love your blog by the way. I mean, I know I’m just a lawyer and all–but it is a great site. 😉

    Funny-media not interviewing Pelosi about this–I’m sorry–I meant “Typical” and “Sad” instead of funny.

    “Dammit, chickenhawk, you WILL pull my finger!” 😀
