Democrats Get a Face; Brain, Spine Still on Back Order
The emergence of Murtha may present new complications for both Democrats and Republicans in the increasingly bitter debate over American involvement in Iraq. Cindy Sheehan has registered her dismay at the perceived threat to her place as the poster child of the anti-war movement. On the other hand, Republican Vice President Dick Cheney appears unfazed by Murtha's new prominence.
"It's one thing for the Dems to get a face," said the plain-spoken Cheney. "It's another for them to get a brain or a spine, and as I've said, some of them have either lost their memory or their backbone."
CNN sources within the Capitol have confirmed that both memory and backbone supplies have run low in Congress, but that more shipments are on back order. Sources were unable to confirm or deny the existence of cojones supplies.
