As I was looking at RWN's poll this morning, I was interested that it was so close to our poll here:
And, how the hell did I miss Barack's endorsement by the Communist Party?! This isn't "right wing scare tactics" either...it's right there on the Communist Party USA's website. Does the average Joe & Jane know this if I didn't...? I really despise the American media.
Lastly, someone in the comments asked what I think about my State moving into "swing state" status. Well, the truth is, they tell us this every election. They always have some reason they think Pennsylvania can be won by the GOP. Personally, I think PA is just too union corrupt (much like NY & NJ) to ever go red again. I hope I'm wrong and Mitt being here last night speaks volumes about what the campaign thinks its chances are here because a candidate has never been in PA this late in the game. My picture with McCain was on September 2, 2008 and that was his last foray into the keystone state. So, fingers crossed but I'm not overly hopeful...
Almost forgot...I wanted to share something that happened the other day:
I was walking my dog around my neighborhood and noticed a "Romney/Ryan" sign on the front lawn of a 30-something guy that has spent his working life in Local 690...the plumbers' union. He happened to be walking out to his truck and I couldn't help questioning the wisdom of placing the sign so prominently in his yard.
"Are you trying to get fired?" I teased.
"What? What do you mean?" he looked honestly perplexed.
"A Romney sign? In plain view? You're union, dude."
"I'm American first."
WooHoo! Made my week.
Ooops. One more thing. Google "Benghazi" and Media Matters headline about "right wing myth" gets top billing!? *sigh*
