Meet Congressman Jim Moron, er, Moran (D-VA).

It seems in the good Congresscritter's world, not all public service is of equal. In fact, it seems that some public service really isn't public service at all:

In a video that's gone viral online, Moran is heard telling a Democratic gathering earlier this month that his opponent, Republican Patrick Murray, is just another unqualified GOP candidate.

"What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven't been in office, haven't served or performed in any kind of public service," Moran said. "My opponent is typical, frankly."
(Emphasis mine)

The trouble is, Murray is a retired Army colonel with 24 years of service--including combat in Iraq. The idea that such an extensive military record doesn't qualify as "public service" has left a sour taste in Murray's mouth.

Not a good thing to say in a state with a large population of military members and retirees who are registered to vote, Congressman Moron. Let's see how long it takes for Col. Murray to cut into your formerly safe lead, sir.

You can see the actual statement in all its stupidity at

he sounds like a goner this election

My daughter's in Marines in Virginia. Too bad she's voting absentee for Maryland election, but I'll tip her off to this anyway, so she can pass it on.
