Things are getting awfully awkward in Pennsylvania.
In the race to fill the seat of the late Marine-slanderer, John Murtha, the Republicans have put up Tim Burns against the Democrats’ Mark Critz in the special election slated for May 18th. CQ reports that Speaker Pelosi and DCCC chairman Chris Van Hollen will be hosting a fundraiser tomorrow for Critz.
That’ll have to be kind of like kissing your cousin, based on this ad Critz’s campaign just put up, declaring: “I opposed the health care bill, and I’m pro-life, and pro-gun.”
Hmm…wonder if that’ll come up tomorrow. You know, who Critz is actually making a point of telling people in advertizing that Pelosi will help raise money to continue how he’s opposed to her signature “achievement”.
Just a reminder to the fine folks of the 12th CD: Critz may be against the Stalinization of Health Care Act of 2010, pro-life, and pro-gun. But, were this not a special election to fill a vacant seat, his first vote as a Congressman would be for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
Oh, and by the way, Critz also is also lying about Burns supporting tax breaks “to ship jobs overseas”. But that’s a whole ‘nother post.
