The Amish Vote, Death Threat Through Obama Website

Conventional wisdom has it, that outside of Philly and Pittsburgh, Barack Obama will have a tough time in Pennsylvania (ala “they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them”). But if these pictures are any indication, he may very well have the Pennsylvania Amish vote locked in.

In other political news, one of our local radio talk show hosts received a death threat.  Steve Corbett, an ardent Hillary supporter, has voiced his support over the airwaves, and has apparently pissed off some Barack Obama supporters.  The threat, received in an email sent through barackobama.com, states “We will kill you when Obama become PRESIDENT OF USA. You would see!!!” (of course, it’s unknown who sent the email at this point; if/when the FBI get involved, I’m sure it won’t be long until it is known)

    Funny picture! I didn’t know the Amish cared about national politics.

    The first paragraph is tongue in cheek (sorry, my dry sense of humor sometimes isn’t obvious in my posts); there probably is no such thing as the “Amish Vote”. The pics are apparently of a person who is a disgruntled Hillary supporter (notice the sign in the window) who is slamming Obama with the sign on the buggy.

    As for the death threat, that story is true.

    Oh! LOL.

    I hope you’re having a nice Father’s Day. 🙂
