John Murtha’s Wife Might Run For His Congressional Seat

Or, more humorously, per Fark, Kim Il Jong urged to run for Murtha’s seat (picture at link)

Joyce Murtha for Congress?

The Pennsylvania papers are reporting that the widow of Rep. John Murtha is being urged to run in the May special election to fill the remainder of her husband’s term. The 77-year-old Democrat died a week ago of complications from gall bladder surgery.

Expect lots of histrionics from Democrats over this, tugging on the heart strings and such

“She would be a tremendous choice,” Hafer told the Tribune-Review. “She is a wonderful woman, an excellent speaker. If that is what she wants to do, I would heartily concur.”

Hmm, aren’t those the same type of “qualifications ” that lassoed us Barack Obama as president? Of course, her long time as Murtha’s wife makes her considerably more qualified than Obama, even though she has never held office. Then again, most assistant managers at McDonald’s and Wendy’s are more qualified to be POTUS than Obama.
