MURTHA’S IN TROUBLE: Veteran Democratic Rep. John Murtha (Pa.) has sent out a last-minute plea for $1 million to save his hotly contested seat, endangered by his own remarks describing his district as racist.

If you’d like to help his opponent, the website is here.

No this isn’t a harbinger of InstaPundit political endorsements. But it is a case of following Robert Heinlein’s advice to vote against candidates, even when you can’t find one worth voting for . . . .

UPDATE: Reader William Aronstein emails:

You make it sound as if you don’t think Colonel Bill Russell is a candidate worth voting for!

Is that what you really think?

No, sorry. I think he’s fine. Though just not being John Murtha would be enough. . . .
