The USS John P. Murtha?

That's what is being proposed.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has decided to name the Navy's newest San Antonio Class amphibious transport-dock LPD 26 the USS John P. Murtha. This is a slap in the face to every service member who bridled when Murtha publicly accused Marines in Iraq of intentionally killing women and children in cold blood.

I'd hate to be a Marine and have to ride in it. Then again, once it was time to disembark, they'd move out quicker than normal. =)

What a revolting thing to do to the military.
