Let’s be clear: Tom Corbett is going to be the GOP nominee, not least because every Republican operative anonymously sniping at him in the press is too chickenshit to tell him to his face to step down. But it sure is fun watching them crap their pants worrying about how many SEPA state senators and House reps Lil’ Tom is going to pull down with him in the 2014 midterms.
Democrats: don’t be stupid about this. Vote a straight party ticket. The shutdown, the Corbett – all of the things you don’t like have been brought to you by your “moderate” southeast Republican representatives. At the end of the day, Charlie Dent, Mike Fitzpatrick, and Pat Meehan don’t vote against the tea people that much, and they’re are all going to vote for John Boehner for House Speaker again next year. Your state reps voted with Corbett on basically everything you didn’t like during the last 3 years. Don’t split your ticket.
