Biden Visits Wilkes-Barre

September 25, 2008 2 comments

Joe Biden visited 40 minutes north of where I live, and he didn’t disappoint. The good-ol’ Biden Gaffe-o-matic was up and running:

But his intended attack ended up confusing some of the crowd.“Ladies and gentlemen, and I say to the national press here, the single biggest tax cut proposed in history for the middle class is being proposed by John McCain,” he said, rather than calling the plan a tax increase.

Of course, that was preceded earlier this week by him saying that clean coal was not the way to go in the United States, despite the fact that Obama’s stand is that he is FOR clean coal.

But no matter; after all, Biden is from Scranton, an area that once thrived on the anthracite coal industry, and in which many in the area are banking on a resurgence of coal. That’s OK Joe; Barack doesn’t need votes up here in Hillary Country (and thus increasingly McCain Country) in a SWING state….

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)
