If Toomey made a deal with the devil Bloomberg, as many suspect, it’s already biting him in the butt.

The deal, I presume, was that MAIG would stop running the “bad” ad.

Ok, great.

But now they’re running a “good” ad.  A kiss of death ad.  An ad that will continually remind every GOP primary voter what he did, twisting the knife a little.

Deals with the devil never really turn out the way you hope.

In a phrase: corporate cronyism.

More broadly, a glib lack of seriousness about policy.

I was trucking along with this Buckley Carlson column just fine… Obama hypocritically bending environmental rules and helping to bail out the oil refinery in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania as a cold political bribe to solidify light-blue PA’s 20 electoral votes

Then I got to the end:

It is a model of efficiency I hope the Romney administration is capable of emulating — without the demagoguery.

I don’t know if Carlson is serious or not.  Snark is difficult to pull off in a written medium.   He seems serious to me though.

I’m certainly glad the Marcus Hook refinery might remain open, but I’m not very happy about how it happened.

What she would want to see is an environmental policy that is consistent and makes sense so that everybody knows the rules.  Sunoco never should have been put in the situation where it would plan to shed refineries.  We should not see political favoritism in regulation, and we should not want to see state bailouts (–no thank you, Governor Corbett) of private industry.

 

 

 

Cartels in NEPA?

Holy chit, hispanic kid damn near took off a black kid’s hand with a machete in Wilkes-Barre.  These are young high schoolers.  Yikes.

Fuck you. Goblinfuck you with recycled fuckwipes for tolerating this clown to represent you. Fuck you for continuing your descent into poverty and not doing anything about it. Fuck you for continuing to vote for the dickheads who use violence as a debate strategy. And fuck you because I am sick of seeing towns such as you mooch off of others, and then threaten us if we don’t toe your line.

The Archbishop of the Diocese of Denver, Charles J. Chaput, will be installed as Archbishop of Philadelphia on September 8.  I think it’s a good move for Philadelphia; Archbishop Chaput doesn’t tolerate the sort of scandal that has overshadowed Cardinal Rigali’s leadership.

I’m very fond of Archbishop Chaput and will miss him terribly, and I know many members of the Archdiocese of Denver feel the same way.  He’s very down-to-earth and does an excellent job of explaining things in terms everyone can understand.   And you can’t miss how much he cares for each and every person he meets – there’s an immediate undeniable connection, and it’s obvious that he has an incredible devotion to his flock.

We’ll be praying for Archbishop Chaput to have the strength and wisdom to take on the difficulties the Church faces in Philadelphia.

(1) WSJ informs us that the unemployment rate of 8.9% is after adjusting for the reduced size of the labor force.  If we assume the same size labor force as we had before the recession, we’d be looking at 11.5% official unemployment.

(2) Sebelius more-or-less admits to double-counting the Medicare cuts in Obamacare:

(3) WTF is wrong with Philly?  The Philadelphia Republican committee is not even bothering to put up a RINO for mayor, and they are chasing down a genuine Democrat instead.  I guess we’re beyond the “In Name Only” stuff.  C’mon, guys…

(4) Mazda is recalling 2009 and 2010 model Mazda6′s because –get this– “a certain type of spider” that “may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line and this may cause a restriction in the line.

One of the things that makes me laugh/cringe is how today’s progressives/leftists and yesterday’s racists all seem to have the same goals.

Case in point.

A Pennsylvania high school says some students are separated by race, gender and language for a few minutes each day in an effort to boost academic scores, raising controversy over the historically contentious issue of segregation in schools.

The initiative is a pilot program intended to capitalize on “enriching students’ experiences through mentoring” and is derived from school research “that shows grouping black students by gender with a strong role model can help boost their academic achievement and self esteem,” according to a statement from McCaskey East High School in Lancaster.

So, segregation is good now?

The balkanization of America is chugging along.

I can understand why, it worked so well in the Balkans.

Pennsylvania, where the sexually adventurous go to die…

The evacuation of a Chester County hotel earlier this month was caused when staffers entered a room, found an Indiana man’s naked, lifeless body next to various sexual devices and a gas mask, and smelled the stinging odor of unknown liquids, police and sources said.

The liquids turned out to be cleaning solutions that the man had been huffing as part of a solo sexual act, a source said yesterday.

State Police responded to the Fairfield Inn and Suites, on Baltimore Pike near McFarlan Road, in Kennett Square, on Nov. 4, after hotel employees found the 48-year-old man, whom police did not identify, dead in his room.

I propose the Fairfield Inn be the site of the next moron meetup.  It looks clean and comfortable and they already know how to handle bodies turning up.
