And it was the two Republican Senators from Maine and the Republican Senator from Pennsylvania that went over to the dark side and voted FOR this pork bill that gave the Dims the 60 votes it needed.
Pennsylvania may have gone blue in the presidential election, but, in the flyover counties between philly and pittsburgh, we are RED - with the exception of Murtha’s district, Erie and Scranton. Our state has the largest population of gun owners and hunters in the country. We have solid conservative representatives from the red counties in Pa. It’s from those red counties that I’ll bet this was brought forth.
It’s the Philly and Pittsburgh RATS that keep getting Sphincter elected. Don’t judge us all by them. We have to work harder to get him out next time - and no GW Bush to campaign for him!
