Corbett’s US Senate Candidate Is An Albatross Around His Neck »« In which the Post-Gazette abandons even the pretense of impartiality

Get out of my party

I’m fairly “big tent”, but there comes a point…

From the front page of Sunday’s Patriot News — “Some in Pennsylvania GOP seem to back Sen. Bob Casey quietly“.

Seriously?

“We all know Casey,” said one party boss, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “He doesn’t make a lot of enemies.”

Oh geez…
“Another GOP power broker”:

“It’s going to be very difficult to beat Bob Casey,” the high-ranking Republican said. “You can call him ‘Sen. Nothing’ and ‘Sen. Zero,’ but he hasn’t alienated anybody.”

More…

But one of the state GOP bosses comfortable with Casey said he was “just as conservative” as any prominent Pennsylvania elected official, leaving little motivation for a change.

“The only motivation that Republicans have [to defeat Casey] really is who controls the Senate,” the power broker said. “It’s not an anti-Casey thing. It’s a control thing.”

Really?!?

He voted for the Porkulus, Obamacare, and taxpayer bailouts of union pensions. He has an ACU score of 5.65, an NTU grade of “F”, a Club for Growth score of 2%, and a Heritage Action score of 4.

I find it rather implausible that a person could rack up such a dismally left-wing voting record without alienating anybody.  How is this even remotely “just as conservative” as any Republican?

Get out of my party now.  You are a disgrace.
