Murtha Is Dead!

Today there is surprisingly good news for America for a change. The filthy traitor, Rep. John Murtha (D – PA) is dead! The 77 year-old villain has died and gone to his final judgment.  May that judgment be entirely just and untempered by mercy.

It’s not a perfect world though. The filth died as a result of complications from gallbladder surgery at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, VA. instead of being hanged or beaten to death by the people he had betrayed.

Still, one has to take the good with the bad and the most important and joyous fact is that this scumbag is dead and no longer polluting our country with his perfidy, only his soon to be rotting corpse.

    What makes you so hateful? Murtha was a husband, a father, a grandfather, and leaves behind family and friends grieving terribly right now.

    I hope they never see this vile garbage you have spewed upon the internet. They don’t deserve that pain.

  2. jonolan Says:

    They willingly profited from his actions and therefor I have little or no sympathy for them if they’re distraught over his death.

  3. Ryan Mason Says:

    C’mon, Jonolan. This is pretty extreme, even for you. It’s one thing to think Murtha was a terrible person, but quite another to rejoice in his death and not even express any condolences for his family. Don’t let your ideology cloud your humanity.

  4. jonolan Says:

    What ideology do you speak of, Mason? At one time or another Murtha betrayed everyone, both the Left and the Right. He was quite “bipartisan” in his corruption and evil.

    Hell, even his evil and unsubstantiated libeling the Marines at Haditha was based more upon not having gotten some pork he wanted than any true opposition to the Iraq War, for which he had earlier sold his vote.

    Oh yes! I rejoice in Murtha’s death and even feel some pleasure at that thought that his kin – who made their living off of his corruption – might be suffering over it, as I would in the destruction of any enemy.

    I’m like that, make no apologies for it, and would expect my enemies to do the same when I die.

  5. Ryan Mason Says:

    I wasn’t referring to your ideology of political identity, but that of seeing people you don’t agree with as enemies, sub-human, and “filth,” which you evidently embrace openly. It’s unfortunate.

  6. Nancy Says:

    Good grief, jonolan, why don’t you tell us what you REALLY think?

  7. jonolan Says:


    While on this blog I do not say everything that I think, there just not being enough time; what I do say is what I think. I do not sugarcoat it.

  8. Kelly Mahan Jaramillo Says:

    In Jonolan’s defense, he despised the man.

    When Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin croak, I will be dancing in the street with unbridled joy, and no, I will not feel bad for their families, who are living high on the hog with the stolen funds from the American People.

    It is his blog, and he does not have to sugarcoat it. When one of the above filth and scum die, I will most likely speak my mind on my blog.

  9. jonolan Says:

    Thank you, Kelly.

    I’m sure that when the people you mentioned die you’ll rejoice and do so openly. I’m also fairly sure that some others, including some of the other commentors, will also rejoice, but only quietly and behind closed doors.

    As a people we have a problem with Schadenfreude and with expressing the underlying despite and/or hatred that is its cause.

  10. Ryan Mason Says:

    Kelly –

    Of course he has the right to say what he wants. It is his blog and I hope he continues to speak his mind. That said, the content of what he says is still fair game for comments and criticism. And I still think that rejoicing in someone’s death to the point of getting pleasure out of the thought of the deceased’s family’s bereavement is extreme, no matter who does it.

  11. jonolan Says:


    Is such rejoicing really extreme, or is it just the open and public display of such that which is unusual and/or extreme?

  12. Ryan Mason Says:

    Good question.

    It’s more than just the public display; it’s how extreme you were in expressing your glee at his death and his family’s pain in losing a loved one. Humor and levity aren’t conveyed nearly as well in a blog. One can come across seeming like a total sociopath much more easily from a blog rather than if it were heard in a conversation.

    At the same time, I can’t imagine myself actually rejoicing in the death of someone with whom I didn’t have any relationship. I didn’t rejoice when Saddam Hussein was hanged, even though I thought he was a pretty awful human being. I wasn’t sad, either. I had no personal attachment to him. You reacted to Murtha’s death like he was a neighbor that molested you, not some politician that you vehemently disagreed with.

  13. Kelly Mahan Jaramillo Says:

    Ryan –
    You and Jonolan both make very good points. We both feel that certain people in power screwed or are continuing to screw the public so badly that we are taking it that personally. I am starting to think it is not very healthy, and to tell you the truth, I have found that my dislike of my above mentioned group has gotten to the crazy-making point.

    Will I blog with glee and the death of the aforementioned politicians? I do not know – I hope by the time they are dead, I will be older and wiser and not give a flying shit about any of it anymore.

  14. Sidney Carton Says:

    May you be mourned with equal reverence when you pass.

  15. jonolan Says:


    As I said early in this thread, I fully expect that some will rejoice in my death. Nor do I in any way begrudge them that.

    If they hate or despise me then they should rejoice in my demise, as I would theirs.

  16. in2thefray Says:

    Be honest people…How many bloggers and perhaps near to the mainstream media will have trouble restraining their glee over the passing of Bush,Cheney et al? There will be overt glee I tell you by the extremes and not so extreme. There will also undoubtedly be many attacks on them in stories and books. Death ends nothing but the life of the person that has died. Opinions, hurt, love and hate live long after the body ceases. People long for legacy. Murtha’s legacy is one deserving scorn.
