Arianna Huffington has it dead on that this victory has its origins in Jack Murtha’s call for withdrawal beginning about a year ago. The whole election as probably about incompetence, with Exhibit A being Iraq, followed by Katrina, etc. Corruption fits into this because the Congress was too busy milking it to do its job.

Anyway, the knock against Murtha is Abscam. Fine, let him take the heat. He can handle it. It’s off Pelosi that way.
