Baby Got PAC: Why there's even less difference between Santorum and Casey than you may think

KA-ching!

What's that sound?

It's the sound of the money being given by the same PACS to both Sen. Man-on-Dog (R-Va) and Bob "I put myown self to sleep when I talk" Casey, Jr. (DINO).

Last week Bob Casey's campaign asked, "Who owns Rick Santorum?" The answer is, the same people who own Bob Casey. Have a look at this.

These PACs have given a lot of money to Bob Casey: Cozen and O'Connor PAC, Delaware Valley PAC, Genesis Healthcare Corporation PAC, Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP PAC, PH&S Federal PAC, Reed Smith PAC and the Tercenary Fund.

The same PACs bankroll Rick Santorum. But wait, there's more!

Bob Casey takes money from JazzPAC. Sounds like Dave Brubeck and Sonny Rollins formed a political action committee, doesn't it? Actually, it's Exelon, Northrop Grumman, SmithKline Beecham, Koch Industries, General Electric, and a bunch of others. Casey also took money from Narragansett Bay PAC. Must be environmental. Sure looks like a J. Crew ad. Nah, it's General Dynamics, SmithKline Beecham, Ernst & Young, Raytheon, General Electric, Bank of America; is this starting to sound familiar? And then, there's Ameripac. Can't you just smell the apple pie cooling? Well hold your nose; it's Harrah's, Tropicana, Bacardi, MGM Mirage, Time Warner, the New York Stock Exchange, General Dynamics, Bell South, Clear Channel; the list goes on. And that shadowy 527 group that Casey "exposed," Americans for Job Security? Their biggest donor is the American Insurance Association, which gave money to CHRISPAC, which gave money to Casey. And this is just the tip of a nearly half-million dollar iceberg.

Santorum or Casey: take your pick. Either way, you get the same people and the same lame excuses for prolonging the war, blocking universal health care, and undermining our fundamental rights. Either way, it's bridges to nowhere, pay raises for legislators, and defense contractors plundering what's left of the US Treasury. Either way, Pennsylvanians lose.

So now you're asking yourself, "What am I supposed to do?" "We have to get Tricky Ricky out and Bob's the Candidate with the "D" beside his name.

Well, I have the scoop on some news that doesn't get ANY play in the MSM:

Despite what the Powers That Be would have you believe, there's actually OTHER Democrats running in this election, and despite Chuck Schumer's best efforts to have us all forget about it,
THERE'S STILL A PRIMARY ON MAY 16TH.There's a candidate out there who refuses to take money from any PAC. He's actually pro-choice in a BLUE STATE. And that matters because Casey is completely anti-choice. Perhaps that's why Casey's slipped 6 points in the polls. Despite his best efforts, the elctorate is starting to learn what his views are and who backs him.

Furthermore a recent Quinnipiac Poll shows that:

When it is pointed out to pro-choice Casey voters that he and Santorum both oppose legalized abortion, 63 percent of the Democrat's supporters say they still will vote for him, while 22 percent say they will not vote in this race.
Hear that Schumer, Reid and Hillary? Twenty-two percent will sit out the race because you all decided that it was good for the party to run an anti-choice candidate in a BLUE STATE. And that 22% means bye-bye to a Casey win.

So who's the candidate who refuses PAC money? The one who won't have anyone who's pro-choice, pro-living wage, strongly anti-Iraq War sitting on their hands?

It's Chuck Pennacchio. And, I implore you to check him out
here or donate to his campaign here.

This is my first visit to this blog, but as a resident of PA this caught my attention. I've been suspicious of Bob Casey Jr since I first visited his very pretty but vacuous website. It's improved slightly since then, but his "issues" page still contains nothing substantive. There is nothing on civil rights, health care (except for seniors) or the war in Iraq.

It's disturbing to see yet another cowardly Republican-lite Democrat getting so much attention.
