You can't make this stuff up.

Navy to give Congressman John Murtha the highest public service award for non-employees. Even after his disgraceful public comments on the Marines accused of the "Haditha massacre"*, to say nothing of his repeated attempts to undercut and defund Marines in Iraq. Strange way to interpret Semper Fidelis, I'd say. At any rate, veterans and others whose sympathies are with the Corps are signing a petition to rescind the award. Go here to do the same.

*At this point, seven of the eight accused Marines have been acquitted and LTC Jeffrey Chessani's court-martial has been suspended due to command interference, i.e. pressure to make sure he was convicted.
