What's Next? The USS Bergdahl?

Well that's nice:

The Navy will christen the newest amphibious transport dock ship, John P. Murtha (LPD 26), Saturday, March 21 during a 10:00 a.m. CDT ceremony at the Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.

Nancy Pelosi was slated to deliver the principle address. Of course she did.

The LPD reportedly has a brig large enough to hold the entire Marine landing force that it can carry. Just in case.

This is wrong. It is an insult to make sailors and especially Marines serve on this ship.

UPDATE: Our Marines and sailors will suck it up and serve well, of course.

It's not like they are fragile little snowflakes requiring a trigger warning, the way our college students apparently are when faced with any unpleasant fact at all. [UPDATE: Link added, tip to Instapundit]

UPDATE: Hell, Bergdahl will get an aircraft carrier named after him.
