The long in the majority PA Republicans are having a tough time adjusting to the new and improved BLUE Pennsylvania. Kos frontpaged a story about the Dems taking control of the PA House by one representative. Predictably, the Repubs are not quite ready to concede.
Here is the article from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette website:
Anyway, they lost and they are still acting like little kids who didn't get that shiny new bike for Christmas. I know Kos likes to focus on the Mountain West as the new progressive frontier, but it sure looks like PA is ending it's love affair with Republicans as well. It's been a remarkable turnaround. I am at work so I can't go into exact numbers, but in the last 5 years the PA Dems have accomplished the following:
- Rendell is now a two-term governor.
- A Democratic US Senator was elected for the first time in my lifetime thereby ending Santorum's reign of terror.
- Took back control of the state house. This is quite remarkable considering the advantages Repubs had in the more rural parts of PA for years.
- Elected Joe Sestak, Patrick Murphy and Jason Altmire to the US House ridding us of Curt Weldon and Mellisa Hart (DAMN I LOVED TYPING THAT!)
Way to go PA DEMS and don't let that door hot you in the ass Perzel and the rest of you now irrelevant Republicans. BOOYAH!!!
