Casey bad on gay rights, too.

Casey, Jr., opposes extending employer benefits to same-sex partners and opposes allowing homosexual couples to adopt children. These views are available in the 2004 Pennsylvania Catholic Council questionnaire.

By contrast, Chuck Pennacchio supports extending employer benefits to same-sex partners and supports allowing homosexual couples to adopt children.

Bob vs. Chuck

Yes, it's hard to gain traction when you haven't been annointed as the prospective nominee by King Eddie of Rendellia. That said, I was watching Bob Casey on cable the other night, but flipped to the channel where you can watch paint dry--it was more interesting.

That said, Chuck Pennacchio has progressive views he isn't afraid to articulate. And running to the center hasn't ever produced a Democratic Senator elected to a full term in Pennsylvania IN MY LIFETIME--and I'm 48 years old!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too bad

Democratic consultants and politocrats seem to be beneficiaries of the "new math" of the '80s.

Clarification on CabinGirl

That's not her comment. She is a very strong Pennacchio supporter. The comments you quote are her quoting remarks "emailed to me by someone I know who attended a fundraising event with the thought of possibly backing Casey." Her point in quoting the email was to show that Casey's supposedly better political skills aren't that great.

Thanks for pointing that out

I changed the reference in the post. I hope it's accurate now.

Last week's New Yorker also has an article on how Chuck Schumer is pushing hard for Democrats embracing and supporting candidates who believe women have essentially no reproductive rights, candidates such as Casey.

It's fine

I know it wasn't that big of a deal but given how much she dislikes Casey, it felt like very bad karma to not say something.

Karma is a boomerang

...and it's something Schumer does not seem to appreciate, either.
