2006: Democrats 1, Republicans 0
All right, this is probably old news to us wonks out there, but in case you missed it, Jean Schmidt (R-OH), coming off her narrow victory over Paul Hackett, pole-vaulted right to the top of the "most vulnerable incumbents" list with this gem during the debate over John Murtha's call for withdrawal of troops from Iraq:

[A] few minutes ago I received a call from Colonel Danny Bubp [an Ohio legislator and Marine Corps Reserve officer]. He asked me to send Congress a message: Stay the course. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message: that cowards cut and run, Marines never do.

Setting aside the obvious difficulties of calling a decorated Marine with more than three decades of service to his country a "coward", Bubp later claimed Schmidt had misquoted him. Can we say "oops"?
