SESTAK AD A PHONY
When the devastating ad came out against Arlen Specter from Joe Sestak’s people, Mrs. LuLac smelled a rotten fish. Now I’m supposed to be the media guy in the family but as soon as she saw it, she told me it was doctored in some way. And lo and behold she was correct. Today the Specter people put an ad up that countered the Sestak ad with none other than Ed Rendell weighing in on how it was the worst type of campaigning by a politician. The ad defended Specter and also touted the big names (Obama, Biden, et all) supporting the Senator. To me that might not have been a good idea given the fact that most people are hating Washington and government in general. But it did get the message out there that the ad was doctored to make Specter look like an opportunist. I’ve always voted for Specter and won’t stop tomorrow. My only question about this Senate race is why Joe Sestak won’t reveal the name of the alleged White House official who promised him a job in the Obama administration if he dropped out of the race? Arlen might be a cranky old man, who might have tried to sell us the single bullet theory about the JFK assassination and he may be as wild as a Montavani marathon but as far as I know, he never lied to the voters of Pennsylvania.
