That sounds nasty, but I'm wondering what "Santroum" is.

I should hope so.  Cutting music and arts from the school is NOT okay, Corbett, you cock.

To be fair, Corbett is not the sniveling cockbag that Santorum is.

He's a different type of sniveling cockbag all together.

Very true.  He's not the overly religious GOP cockbag, he's more the rich Cheney type of GOP cockbag.  But for net effect, that's largely a distinction without a difference.

I like the fact that Corbett seems to have no spine.  you pays your money, he does what you want.  no muss, no fuss...no real willpower there.  he just does whatever he's paid to do.  And he stares at you with those soul dead eyes while he does it.

"These guys are barking up the wrong tree. 2006 was a Democrat wave year," said one veteran GOP consultant. "The mid-term election during a president's second term is always better for the other party."

That's a bit of a stretch since there's only been two cases of such a thing in the last 40 years. 1986 the Dems already controlled the House by a large margin and picked up a few more seats. In 1998, the GOP controlled the House, but lost seats. So there are two examples of "The mid-term election during a president's second term " in the last 40 years and one was better for the other party and one wasn't.

I guess you could throw in 1974 in there, even though Nixon was already out of office. Yea, the Dems were the 'other party' that year and picked up 49 seats, but that probably had a lot more to do with a revolt against the GOP due to Nixon than anything else.

You provided a search of what "Santorum" is, which I already knew.

I'm wondering what "Santroum" is. You know, like in the headline. I'm doubly-confounded because searching for "Santroum" assumes I'm searching for "Santorum," which defeats the purpose of my search entirely.

Do try to keep up.

Well, he did run for President for a while.

Also, he continued to be a self-loathing repressed homosexual, and a giant cockbag.
 
2013-01-10 02:21:31 PM  
Several other Republican operatives dismissed the connection.

The PPP survey was done of Pa.'s registered voters (as opposed to likely voters), using a 48 percent to 38 percent margin of Democrats to Republicans. Thus those numbers are likely to present a more favorable landscape for Democrats than Pa.'s voting history suggests.


Isn't this precisely what we heard from the Romney (and other GOP campaigns) this past election cycle? How'd that work out for them?

Thanks for covering that, I had come in to comment similarly.

I am LOVING the overconfidence of the GOP going in to the 2014 mid-terms. That's awesome. They still have done absolutely nothing to bring back more moderate folks like me that they've driven out of the party (20-year republican who couldn't stand how low the party has sunk to, so quit last year and threw my support behind Obama). The platform hasn't changed, and almost everything I'm hearing out of the GOP seems to be "We've got to DERP even harder this time!" - doubling down on the crazy.

I hope they don't realize how stupid they're being and keep this overconfidence right up to election day. Then, when they get crushed in the mid-terms, we'll see some infighting that will make the current stuff pale in comparison, and perhaps things will be brought to a head enough to have a schism in the party and finally get an opposition party where the nutbags aren't in charge any more.

I'm in the same boat as you, and I thought it was obvious that the GOP were going to learn nothing from their trouncing on election night:

You had Karl Rove and the math he does as a Republican to make himself feel better.
You had Bill O'Reilly going on and on about how 47% of the people in the country just want free stuff.

Etc.

And it only worsened leading into the new Congress, and now the derp has gone plaid.

I am a Republican, and I vow not to vote for any Republicans until this shiat ends.

It's a pidgin word. The San comes from the aboriginal peoples of southern Africa commonly called Bushmen, and troum is a German project of drone music, ambient music, noise music, and experimental music. It's a movement in music that's starting to gain in popularity among the hipsters of South Africa. I wouldn't expect you to have heard of it. Shades of Santroum is just capitalizing an already existing popular trend (the housewife porn) in order to promote its own agenda. It's pretty ironic.

The hard fact is that the mid-terms do not bring out the vote in Philly and Pittsburgh.  Without those votes, Corbett and the rest of the idiots that currently run the state will almost certainly hold on to power.  So we can look forward to more fracking, more voter suppression, fewer teachers, and the likely privatization of the the state liquor stores (which will actually be good for the consumer, but very, very bad for the state budgets in the future).

Exactly my thought when I read that.

Even better, that 48-38 margin of Ds to Rs matches PPP's last pre-election poll of Pennsylvania, which, funnily enough, also predicted the margin in their presidential results correctly. So, I'd say it's pretty in accord with PA's voting history.

/high five

I have a bunch of friends who feel the same way, have always voted republican and refuse to any more for the same reasons as us. I'm still in my 30's, relatively young by voter standards, and the republican party has utterly alienated me. I still don't want to be a Democrat, I am now independent, but I'll vote for the D's if the Republicans won't excise the tumor that is the far right.

I'm a free-market loving, gun-loving, hawkish, guy who voted for farking Bob Dole. If the R's can't even get ME to consider voting for them anymore then they are committing demographic suicide.


Note for the GOP leadership: Kick the nutty evangelicals in the teeth, you idiots. They're sinking the entire party, and harming the future of our country. Oh wait, you know what? DON'T. It will probably be better for the country if the R party just kills itself through stupidity so a new, saner, party can have the opportunity to take its place.

Do you mean this because the state would lose out on the profits from the stores? Doesn't paying medical expenses and pensions for all those workers more than eat up any profits the stores reap? I'm seriously interested because I've been in favor of doing away with the PLCB for a long time.

I would also like to know the implications of finally abolishing the Johnstown Flood Tax. That could easily be bringing in enough to cover the benefits for the PLCB workers. It's an interesting economic puzzle.

Oh, and to be on topic, I have lost a lot of respect for Corbett in the last five years. Hell, I even voted for him as AG in 2008. His treatment of the Sandusky/PSU scandal has been horrific (he wasn't vocal enough at the onset, and is only now becoming vocal but for all of the wrong reasons -- namely, because he knows he's in trouble for reelection).
