Dead but still costing taxpayers money…

Senator John Murtha of Pennsylvania, and his pork-barrel airport.  Destination? D.C. and back. One of the nicest small airports you’ll ever see. And see it sans traffic.

Apparently, American taxpayers are still subsidizing every flight with $100.  The irony, is if a Republican financed a monumental pork-barrel airport mainly so he or she could fly back and forth between D.C., the mainstream media and would have harped on it daily, and done so for years.

Is may have been wrong to have been glad when this guy passed, but the fact that it was probably our only means of getting him out of office, and the fact that we are still PAYING his pork makes me in no way miss him.
