Nancy Pelosi is a liar - Murtha should not have a ship named after him

Nancy Pelosi said this about why the US Navy should name a ship after the late Congressman John Murtha.

Murtha — “our dear Jack,” as Pelosi referred to him — deserved the honor as a tireless advocate for troops generally and Marines in particular, she said, and she recalled admiring his rapport with them.

What a bunch of B.S. that remark is...

Cassy Fiano has a lot more about the subject

Another military blogger said in passing, "What's next, renaming the the sniper rifle the "Lee Harvey"."

Why not name it the USS Lewis B. Puller, USS Rafael Peralta, or the USS Ripley?

In the comments, give us your nick-names for the USS Murtha that the US Marines will surely use...  Cassy already called it the USS Fat Bastard.
