Well, so did I when the folks from Quinnipiac called yesterday evening to ask me some questions. As it turns out, however, this poll was all about good old PA. There were lots of questions about the Legislature, Rendell, Casey and Specter (I had to assist the caller with the pronunciation of "DeWeese").
The scary part came right upfront. After screening me in, the first real question asked how familiar I was with this guy:
Then they asked how likely I would be to vote for Chris Matthews as the Democrat vs. Senator Arlen Specter the Republican in 2010, when they said Matthews would be the likely candidate.
Talk about frightening!
Yes, by all mean let's have another Center Right On Social Issues Dem in PA. And, this one a huge pig to boot!
On the other hand, I find Specter horribly frustrating. He often talks a good game when it comes to our rights under the Constitution and the Rule of Law. He acts like he'll stand tall and be fair and independent, but inevitably he backs down and votes the good ol' Republican line. He's full of hot air.
So I guess Specter vs. Tweety would make it the Chickenshit Hot Air Balloon vs. the Sexist Gasbag race.
Lord help us all!
