About that "Murtha resolution." Another funny story ...

It's not like I imagine this is going to change any minds (such as they are) in the Canadian wankersphere, but what the hell (all emphasis added):

Fox's Gibson and Hannity, NY Post falsely claimed that House voted on Murtha's resolution

On November 21, Fox News host John Gibson falsely claimed that the House of Representatives voted down a measure offered by Rep. John P. Murtha (D-PA) calling for the withdrawal of U.S. soldiers from Iraq; the New York Post made the same claim in a November 22 editorial. In fact, the House voted on a counter-resolution sponsored by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) in response to Murtha's that bore little resemblance to the original. Murtha's resolution asked that U.S. forces be redeployed "at the earliest practicable date," while Hunter's resolution asked that "the deployment of United States forces in Iraq be terminated immediately." Fox News host Sean Hannity also repeated the claim during the November 21 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, the third time he has done so

It's a good thing none of our wankers are as despicably dishonest and sleazy as any of their wankers. Oh, wait ...

BY THE WAY, you remember Rep. Hunter, don't you?
