Finally we get a peephole into the randy, sweaty circle jerk that everyone who was anyone in Harrisburg between 2008 and 2012 (except, supposedly, for Corbett) was allowed in on, and lo and behold, it looks pretty weird. To quote Philly.com at greater length than we prefer: The videos have titles such as “Cigar,” “Chin […]

Wall Street Journal To Tom Corbett: We Can’t Even With You, Just Get Out, UGH

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Ahahahahahahahaha: The one GOP governor in the country almost certain to lose this November is Pennsylvania’s Tom Corbett, who rode to office in 2010 on a tea party wave while Republicans secured control of both legislative chambers.

Hundreds (Maybe) Gathering To Chant Down Corbett/Christie Babylon At Union League Today

Monday, June 9th, 2014

As we mentioned last week, the shitbird dream team duo of Chris Christie and Tom Corbett are hitting the road together this week — ostensibly in the name of fundraising (they both have sputtering, flustered mouths to feed) but also, we presume, as gift to the world of political commentary.
