Murtha's Military Decorations, GOP Counterparts

Anyone still having trouble figuring out the outrage over the Republican party chickenhawks calling Congressman John Murtha (D-PA), a highly-decorated Vietnam Veteran, a "coward" and someone who "cuts and runs" from terrorists?

Here you go:

Some of Congressman Murtha's Military Decorations

In order: Bronze Star, Purple Heart (2), Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, Navy Distinguished Service Medal.

Contrast that with the only military decoration held by the likes of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Tom DeLay, Dennis Hastert and Jean Schmidt.

The Coveted GOP Chickhawk Award

Enough said.
