Murtha on Newshour

US. Rep. John Murtha made some serious waves today when he became one of the first Iraq hawk Democrat to call for an immediate withdrawal of troops. The Newshour's Margaret Warner interviewed him on the Newshour (video should be available shortly).

We saw an unusually beligerent Warner openly frustrated when she couldn't get a word in edgewise against Murtha's comments. Warner was downright upset when she couldn't get her Republican talking points aired out over Murtha's comments.

When she tried to interupt with "cut and run, send in more troops, and the president says blah blah" kinda crap, Murtha put her right in her place with talk about how badly bruised our military is, how the President has been wrong, and how we are doing a disservice to the soldiers by staying there.

Every single presidential talking point was shot down rather excellently by our new hero Rep. John Murtha.

Watch the whole thing...
