Here's a really good rule of thumb: when you've done something not only dumb, but actually vile - in this case, if you've declared that wearing your country's uniform for twenty-four years is not 'public service*' - don't compound the error later by trying to explain it away. Jim Moran (D, VA-08) apparently does not understand this rule of thumb, which is why he is now trying to try to walk back from the aforementioned vile thing that he said about Patrick Murray:
But Moran says he was specifically citing local service aimed at Virginian communities, which Murray lacks, he says.
"Whether it be a civic association or a (parent-teacher association) or a non-profit charitable group, nothing," Moran says.
You know, nobody's ever been able to tell me what Moran brings to the table for VA-08 besides pork and Jew-bashing. Neither is likely to be an indulgence permitted to Democratic legislators in the 112th Congress, so why should Moran be re-elected, again?
