The Realm of the Ridiculous, and of crossing the line.

"American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon."

Mr. Murtha's only reason to be in Miami was to raise money for the local Dems. Left wing bloggers and Murtha's own press aide have said that he was misquoted. They say that he was merely quoting a poll on how Europeans feel about the United States.

Whether including such material in order to denigrate the US in a public speech (during a time of war at a $150 a plate dinner at a Democrat Party function) - thus aiding and abbetting our publicly sworn enemies - is a good thing or no...is for you to decide.
