Democrat strategy: Defeat one right-wing nut with another!
Posted by Bud Tugly 12 years ago
Pennsylvania's slide to the right; and its jeopardized status as a blue state is in full view.  
 
The latest evidence: the Democrat primary victory of Bob Casey, Jr. for Senate.  
 
 
 
C'mon! This guy makes Joe Lieberman look like a liberal! We're talkin' Zell Miller territory here!  
 
This is the guy to whom you will be pouring in your most precious resources this election year? An anti-abortion, anti-gay, pro-gun right-winger?  
 
 
 
And what will you get for it if he wins?  
 
I doubt this guy will be voting your way much - especially on judges.
...
glitch p-udding: i don't like this guy one bit. but he did extremely well in the primary. what's wrong with giving the people what they want? i mean, not so long ago these people fucking LOVED rick santorum. if this guy wins in november, it seems very likely that he will, it'll be a step to the left for the state...and certainly a step back from the brink of insanity.  
 
a small step...definitely...but a step.  
 
i, personally, was all about chuck p. i'm not a big fan of the whole 'lesser of two evils' thing, but when you've got someone as vile as rick santorum, any alternative looks attractive.  
 
it's actually interesting that this guy is as right as he is, because the state of PA is in the midst of a huge political shakeup with many incumbents being knocked out of office.
Bud Tugly: Do you think Democrats should commit heavy duty resources to electing this guy?  
 
Or do you think Democrats should concentrate the heavy fighting elsewhere?  
 
I mean, it's not like national Democrats are going to get a lot of bang for their buck if this guy is elected.  
 
It would be more about feeling good about defeating Santorum - is that enough?
