U.S. Rep. John Murtha made a comment Wednesday about a region of his state of Pennsylvania that raised a few eyebrows.Forget that you in PA-12 may have your own reasons for not voting for Obama, reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with race. Your own elected U.S. Congressman thinks you're racist.
Citing race as the lone factor why some voters in the western part of the state will not vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, Murtha said flatly the western part of the state is “racist.”
“There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area,” Murtha said.
PA-12, isn't it time you sent this self-serving, senile old gasbag to retirement?
