Jean Schmidt was in DC yesterday to participate in the Reading of the Names– “a ceremony to honor the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.”

We can only assume that Schmidt is STILL trying to make ammends for calling Rep. John Murtha a coward on the floor of the US House of Representatives.

Murtha, a Marine Corps veteran who served in Vietnam, received the Bronze Star for valor in combat, two Purple Hearts and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry.

Schmidt, a multi-millionaire savings-and-loan heiress and former fitness instructor, still has a long way to go before she is going to live down THAT comment.
