Rumored ex-Marine John Murtha, Democrat congressman from Pennsylvania, has become the darling of the cut-and-run crowd for trying to place absurd restrictions on our troops, amounting to withdrawal from Iraq. Were Arab sheiks whispering into his ear?
In case you missed the video on “I Love the ‘80s,” Rep. Murtha was caught on tape negotiating bribes with Arab sheiks during the FBI’s Abscam investigation in 1980. The Abscam investigation was conducted by Jimmy Carter’s Justice Department, not right-wing Republicans.

CBC News
Call it a match made in Marineland. A trainer at the Niagara Falls, Ont., amusement park has captured the affections of a 365-kilogram, five-year-old female walrus.
Smooshi has been smitten with trainer Phil Demers since arriving at Marineland from Russia about four years ago.

Smooshi bonded with Phil Demers shortly after she arrived at the park as an 18-month-old walrus.
(CBC) It was his job to make the transition to her new home a comfortable one and he won the animal's heart by removing her from a medical exam room when she became frightened.
'She actually imprinted on me, so she recognizes my smell, my sounds, everything,' Demers told CBC Newsworld on Sunday. 'It's interesting in that she kind of sees me almost as a maternal figure, so it happened fairly immediately.'
Smooshi follows Demers everywhere — "more:
