Jean Full of Schmidt

Jean Schmidt, who defeated Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett for her seat in Ohio, shut down the House of Representatives by challenging the courage of decorated Vietnam War veteran Jack Murtha, saying "cowards cut and run." The place exploded. It was probably everybody pulling out their Blackberries and Googling Jean Schmidt's war record, where they no doubt found her history as the head of Cincinnati Right to Life. Presumably if Murtha's combat experience had been blowing up local Planned Parenthood clinics, that would have qualified.
