San Francisco story prepares to go national. Again.

We want illegal aliens (nomenclature, not my usage…) to vote in the School board elections.

oh the hand wringing to come!

Not visa’d, not Green Card holders, but illegals.

I am putting on ear muffs NOW.

From Tracie Mauriello:
As polls are closing, supporters of Congressman Joe Sestak are beginning to arrive at his primary night party in a ballroom at Valley Forge Military Academy and College 😆 in Wayne, Delaware County.

There are three televisions and a large projection screen where they’ll soon be watching returns. The projection screen now is showing a CNN interview with Sestak opponent Sen. Arlen Specter, but few in the crowd are paying attention.

Instead, attendees — numbering in the dozens — are talking and snacking on crudite and Philadelphia soft pretzels.


In Philly the party has moved on from Cholly’s Bar….

Specter HQ: The place to be

From Daniel Malloy in Philadelphia

Arlen Specter’s campaign party at the Sheraton Center City hotel is clearly the hotspot tonight. The media room is packed with about 50 reporters and photographers, with a colonnade of television cameras in the party room next door. Every major network and national media outlet, it seems, is here to chronicle either the fall of Specter or his latest tightrope walk to victory.

As opposed to Mark Critz’s party in PA-12 — as the inimitable Dennis Roddy reported earlier — the fixins are top-notch and free at the Specter bash: There’s a prime rib carving station, bacon-wrapped scallops and other goodies, as well as three open bars.

FREE FIXINS?!? About sums it up.
YEAH ARLEN!! Go Zionist You Mensch, Go! 😆 Love Ya! Love Ya!

There are a few partygoers milling about, but it’s still early and folks are tensely watching the Early Returns (you knew we had to use that at some point) come in. When I arrived around 8, Specter and wife Joan were greeting folks at the door and Gov. Ed Rendell was milling about, but they have since disappeared. The DJ is pumping out mostly older tunes and a few minutes ago we were treated to “High Hopes” — you can select your own joke to go with that one.

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Pardon me. May I have a blockquote from “Specter Headquarters through the open bar? LOL

marisacat - 18 May 2010

the second link failed, if yo have the uRL I can fill it in (got the b’quote)

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Sorry. The links are via the Pgh Post Gazette

All quiet at Sestak HQ

Specter HQ: The place to be

marisacat - 18 May 2010

free fixins and three open bars? I take it specter expected to win? For Sure?

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Jeezis. If I was there, I’d be pillaging, outright PILLAGING the
Prime Rib and Scallops. Then workin the staff for a doggy bag. 😆

Specter volunteer: It sure is a nailbiter, isn’t it?
Me: ..woo hoo Arlen, yeh. Now just pack up a couple slabs of that beef and a couple dozen of them scallops.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

Scallops with bacon beat shrimp puffs.

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Currently 50/50 with 330 thousand votes cast…
Nope Sestak ahead!
Could it be??? Arlen? Ed? No more? 😯

marisacat - 18 May 2010

Sestak ahead by 5.2, as I look at Politico FP………………

I dunno!

Atleast for the Dems Paul won, they can scare people shitless for months iwth a 23 pt win……….Tea partiers are coming!

Hide the Farm Animals!

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Pink? Lime? Let me know on the shirt. I’ll start eating it this week finishing it up in hospital by Memorial Day…. Sestak carried Allegheny Co by 9000 votes. Unless they are sandbagging big Specter precincts in Philly Scranton Harrisburg …..it’s over!
And I gave my heart to that man! What is the world coming to?

marisacat - 18 May 2010

He let you down. You just have to be more careful sweetie. You know they all want just one thing.

Here……….. hankie.

[snacking on purloined scallops]

diane - 18 May 2010

jeesh, so embarrassed by my ‘home’ state ….

pretty simple probably, a derivative of crud, which serves as a whore’s duevre for: gonna be the big dawg PA, one day real soon, political staffers.

diane - 18 May 2010

or d’oeuvre whichever one prefers

CSTAR - 18 May 2010

crudite; Sounds like A mixture of bauxite and crude oil

But I think the writer forgot to put the accent over the e:: I think what was intended was a little gallic seasoning: crudité, cold cuts, basically.

Crudite suits them better though, Crudite in every pot.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

Considering who is involved, more likely Crude – ite than a lovely selection of crudite.

catnip - 18 May 2010

5. marisacat - 18 May 2010

Politico called it for Sestak……………..

Find the fat fingers!

diane - 18 May 2010

which one’s hon?

the fat fingers seem to be all over the place………

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Taking my cue from Rendell: I was for Joe all Along! (not)

Jeezis Christ, what a lovely clusterfuck, tho…

catnip - 18 May 2010

What was that about a half-eaten shirt? 😉

marisacat - 18 May 2010

diane - 18 May 2010

shit, I left this at the wrong buffet table:

6. catnip - 18 May 2010


Just got back from the store. Sestak won? 🙂

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Pink? Lime? Orange? Plain Vanilla? Hanes? Fruit of the Loom?

catnip - 18 May 2010

Green, baby, green (with some in the pockets).

diane - 18 May 2010

Flavors shouldn’t be allowed. can’t speak for anyone else, but ‘event’ pics would be helpful too.

catnip - 18 May 2010

Or a YouTube video…

diane - 18 May 2010

I like the still shots cause I’m on ‘dial up’ and hate GOOGLE.

catnip - 18 May 2010

He could do a montage. 🙂

diane - 18 May 2010

I really think he should.

7. diane - 18 May 2010

Are there any leftover scallops? I’m hungry.

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

I’m in comfort food mode now.
Why I’m eating I don’t know. LOL.
Could be a Bellwether for asshole functioning…

marisacat - 18 May 2010

AP won’t call it for Critz either……………….. wait wait. The Dems need something… they need Critz.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

they did call it for Critz… by about 9 pts with 70% in.

So glad the Dms got something!!

catnip - 18 May 2010


Democrat Mark Critz is an asshole Dem, and will be among the worst of the Blue Dogs. So why is it good that he won?

Because this was seen as a must-win for both parties. The (bullshit) CW was that if Critz lost, the Dems would lose Congress. This is, indeed, the only district in the entire country that Kerry won in 2004, and McCain won in 2008. In other words, the lowest of the low-hanging fruit, and a district that HATES the health care reform law.

None of that mattered. Dems held the seat easily despite an early and massive Burns polling advantage.

This is yet another sign tonight that Dems have righted their ship, and while things may not be fantastic for them, the once-expected GOP landslide will have a hard time materializing.

Sure. Uh huh…

He’s an asshole but he’s our asshole! Send Money Now!!

marisacat - 18 May 2010

they have Critz AND they have ‘Tea Partiers are coming!!’ (Paul won by 23 pts, scream it to the heavens!!…………. hide the farm animals, etc)

catnip - 18 May 2010

That’s the fav “argument” of Obama’s defenders over there” Do you want President Sarah Palin?

marisacat - 18 May 2010


And soon they will use Rand Paul!

Palin and Paul, they’ll roll back Roe…………… they will! You will be forced to own 20 guns. You will! FORCED to carry a gun! And shoot!

Tea Partiers are COMING.

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Fuck THehHm! I want more of Arlen’s scallops!

marisacat - 18 May 2010

…only if the bacon is kosher.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

the once-expected GOP landslide will have a hard time materializing.

Til Toomey wins? (snicker)

diane - 18 May 2010

I’d like to say something about how fiber is good for the digestive system, but that would probably be tasteless.

CSTAR - 18 May 2010

But it’s true!

diane - 18 May 2010

ha ha! …sho nuf, but don’t say that to BoBooHooHooman right now, I don’t think he’ll be too very amused …but pleeeeeease, don’t tell him I said so.


8. catnip - 18 May 2010

Sestak’s acceptance speech: “And that’s why I’m running for United States senate”.

Dude – you won.

catnip - 18 May 2010

Tweety: “He’s got a nice Slovak background”. lol

marisacat - 18 May 2010

He can say he has already proven he can win against Republicans. Line em up… Specter, Toomey, etc,.

Wht a scream it all is.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

Sell sell sell…

From the People Magazine, ooops I mean Politico report

“Joe Sestak has a compelling life story, and a powerful message of change. He knows what is wrong with Washington, and if elected to the Senate will shake up how business is done in the Capitol,”

said Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), who heads up the Senate Democratic campaign arm

shit, I left this at the wrong buffet table (twice now, I hate “nesting”):

weeeelllllllllllllllll, whats say we box up some fine linen hankies for the magic bullet for his new, ‘behind the scenes’ stint (Blank Roman?, …. after we raid the rest of the beverage and talk about what kind of Lifer, DroneMaster Sestak is gonna be?

10. marisacat - 18 May 2010

Lincoln opened up a bit more of a lead… more than 3 pts with 54.something in.

Go Blanche!!

The Dems are pulling for you!

catnip - 18 May 2010

So my predictions were backwards then. Sestak 5-10% and Lincoln 3%.

Darn spidey-senses. 🙂

11. marisacat - 18 May 2010

Lincoln to a runoff…

diane - 18 May 2010

my mind is muddled, and I forget, will there be another shirt chewing over this one?

12. BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Hmm… Arlen pulled squat from Caseyland.
I was gonna say the Catholic boys up there are flexing the old muscle, but it wouldn’t be Christian.

Specter also got guano out of Rendell in Dauphin County , State worker land…less than a 100 vote advantage….

marisacat - 18 May 2010

It is all so listless. I wonder if this was not the moment for whatever Dem faction to try to move their mil CIA guy into place.

Who knows.

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Oh Gad …
Philly Congressman Big Fat Dumb Bastard Bob Brady..{BFDBBB}
the chauffeur turned Committe Chair turned Congressman turned Appropriations goon …after his boss got indicted and convicted…
The one who travelled out with Arlen to the burbs before Arlen switched over IIRC….

“He wasn’t depending on me enough to help me as much as he should have,” said Rep. Robert A. Brady, who also is the powerful chairman of the city Democratic Committee. “I just thought we were going to steamroll this whole thing.”

Possibility A: They tried to do it on the cheap with the Catholic Pudheads and AA the ministry.
Possibility B: The money never reached the streets. With the brokers downstream just sticking it in their pocket…
I mean what could be done about it now?… Complain? Go to the cops? Hey, they stole our unreported cash for Arlen votes money?

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

In an interview on a wrap-around couch in the 34th Ward clubhouse that bears his name, Brady said Specter’s hopes for a fifth term could be dashed because he didn’t do enough to organize in the city.

Pointing across the room at a Democrat from a key part of the city, Brady carped that Specter’s presence was missing in some neighborhoods.

“I was a little surprised at his organization or lack thereof,” he said.

diane - 18 May 2010

then again hon, there is still blatant cheating available at the end of the day if Sestak was the chosen by the silent, top vampires, isn’t there?

or am I being naive?

marisacat - 18 May 2010

yeah, listless.

Why does anyone actually TRUST either the Catholic machine OR the AA minister collection plate….

(and I mean both operatives, pols and CONGREGANTS)

diane - 18 May 2010

yup, musta been the bocci balls,…..the corned beef, and the kolbasa (okay, kielbasa) ………..

marisacat - 18 May 2010

OR the Dems want Toomey to go in.

I mean, they so prefere to be out of powr. Whiners tht they are… and Obby luvs to whine

diane - 18 May 2010

well, I won’t be the one to bet and eat the shirt coz I generally don’t track the details unless they fall in my lap ….though I have to say Sestak’s Military Pedigree, especially along with all the goddy (and goody) two shoes blather, crepped (and creeped) me out, I know nothing though, of Toomey …

I think they are all (99.9999999999%, at least), generally, PSYCHOPATHS ………

13. diane - 18 May 2010

Who ate all the fuckin prime rib, assholes?

marisacat - 18 May 2010

I think the scallops ate the prime rib.

diane - 18 May 2010

easy for you to say, you know what crudite is, and where to put the little squiggly on it.

diane - 18 May 2010

this is one of the many things I despise about the tubes …………. those moments sans eye contact, body language, vocal timbre, likely even scent, …….. where you wonder whether you’ve just hurt someone when that was the last thing on your mind.

I was kidding Marisa, you have never ever struck me as a human who took advantage of her knowledge of languages.

smooches, for lack of a better word.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

Yu didn’t hurt me diane.

Don’t worry about it……………………….. 😉

diane - 18 May 2010

I’m real glad I didn’t.

(same to you catnip and CSTAR …and well, BoBoo is too busy gladly intaking HEALTHY GREEN FIBER now, to worry much about an apology from anyone)

BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

Missing the Marrrch of Progress is one of my things. I’ve been erring and making half eaten shirts for enough time now that it’s one of the things I’ve gotten good at it. The trick is to chaw quickly right across the midline at the narrows. You get a top and and can save the bottoms for a nice beach skirt. I wish I’d gotten in on the Lincoln thing. Love Blanche. Just Love her. The rubber rain coat position should payoff against the wet willies flying off the finger pointing sooner or later… But I truly am delighted to see Specter GO. And I don’t worry about apologies I don’t need to give.

diane - 18 May 2010

I wish someone actually did know “the trick,” in all seriousness, ….then maybe we could do something better …..or not …I have no clue, though I constantly allow myself to be ensnarled somewhat by those who, at least momentarily, appear to have some kind of clue ………and while that may make me look like a dumbfuck, I still have yet to see anyone actually satisfied with life at the end of the day

diane - 18 May 2010

fiber shmiber ………………….

hmmmmmmmmmm ……

mr. boody hoody? …..NO, CSTAR’s eatin the crudite w/ Marisa, and mebbe catnip (sorry about the crudtilde or whatever youz guyz)

14. diane - 18 May 2010

A Perfect Tour Jete Emmanual?

or a bit of a tweak necessary ……?

quick someone pour some Mazola on that shower room floor ………

15. BooHooHooMan - 18 May 2010

In a Politico forum ,End of an Era in PA
there was this slobber…

Anna Burger SEIU Intl. Secretary Treasurer :

The U.S. Senate experienced a great loss tonight with the defeat of Senator Arlen Specter. A man of great dignity and wisdom, he has served our state with honor for the past 30 years. With his defeat, our state loses a true champion of the middle class in the Senate, someone who stands up for working men and women even when it isn’t the easy or popular thing to do. He will be missed by many, but especially the members of SEIU, who always had a friend in Arlen Specter.

Etc. Got that EFCA yet Anna?? Prospects looking UP?

marisacat - 18 May 2010

yeah wimmens felt they had a friend in Arlen too. Tho god knows why.

Some articles claiming SEIU and other unions moved agaisnt Lincoln in ARk.

Maybe she was late iwth her dues.

diane - 18 May 2010

well what can I say, I’m still trying to recover from something I hope to be able to explain, verbally one day, which for the most part, when I’m sober or not, appears to have been an excellantly layed trap with a sunny, orange promise of vitamin C at the end of the day, and its after effects.

marisacat - 18 May 2010

oh that gave me a good laugh…

Like when itty bitty R in all but name only Kos swore with such reverberating conviction that he and the Dems would mount a recall on Arnold’s ass…….. 6 months and day.

Yeah right.

I take it little ipl is going to be working for Toomey? Sounds like a plan t me!!
