MICKEY KAUS on the Murtha foofaraw: “The press is pretending to be surprised by Murtha’s views (‘An Unlikely Lonesome Dove’ … ‘a fierce hawk’) even though he’s been a known, public Iraq War skeptic since at least a year and a half ago. . . . I’m ready to be convinced that U.S. troops are doing more harm than good in Iraq, but Murtha’s speech is not convincing. He doesn’t even try very hard.” He doesn’t have to, with all the help from the press.
