The Democrat is covered in tattoos, favors hoodies, and just had a stroke. Will Pennsylvania voters send the anti-politician to the Senate?
In 2008 we sent an empty suit to the White House. We sent an dementia patient there in 2020. Now PA is looking to send a stroked-out empty hoodie to the Senate.
Donkeys are stupid pack animals.
Fetterman’s whole appeal is a facade, he pretends to be this blue-collar tough guy meanwhile he’s not from Braddock he never had a real job in his life and his multi millionaire dad paid all his bills until 5 minutes ago. The story says this is “well known”, I don’t think it is , I think the state media mostly gives him a free pass on it.
How can there even be a chance a brain damaged guy gets elected?
Oh wait, Biden….never mind.
Seriously? Half of America despised Trump so they decided that a senile imbecile was a worthy replacement. And in two short years, we have rampant inflation, soaring energy and utility prices, rising crime, a tidal wave of illegals due to intentional flouting of our immigration laws and a full out war in Europe. Now, they don't like Dr. Oz, or find him ingenuine, so they think installing as senator a full out freeloader and mental defective is the answer. Fetterman is a joke. A fraud. And now, he's an incapacitated one. This is the sort of human trash that Democrats swoon for and ask us to support? If Pennsylvania elects this moron, I hold out little hope for our future. "You can't fix stupid" will replace "e pluribus unum" as our national motto.
We’ll just ignore the part about him pulling a gun on an unarmed black jogger and everything will be a ok.
I’m sorry but Fetterman IS the embodiment of the decline. To vote for him is to state publicly in your utter lack of belief in the state and country. He is an EMPTY HOODIE (& sadly, brain - and that was BEFORE the stroke…)
"What was needed was a new species of elected official who refused to play the same, tired game—the one that no longer worked." - We have come a long way in the political race game. At one time, candidates ran for office based on their record of achievement, i.e., what they had actually accomplished before the contest. In many ways, it resembled sports in that you began with smaller contests and after success and "wins" you progressed to a larger arena and competed with increasingly capable rivals. Those days are gone. Now it is sound bites and social media. Whatever can be said in 30 seconds. You don't need a record of success - either personally or professionally - you just need to wet your political finger and see which way the wind is blowing.
Sadly, it doesn't seem to matter to some what the ability or competency is of a politician, so long as they are from the "right" party.
So if Fetterman wins, we have the prospect of the “most deliberative body” moving closer to a clown car, with the likes of shrieking Liz Warren and Spartacus Booker egging him on. At least it will be entertaining political theater, never mind the desperate need for statesmanship to steer the country through a very rough patch.
Mayor of a broken town for 12 years and it's still broken. Stroke and unable to handle crowds and rapid fire issues. Dresses like he is Antifa. Obviously has a tumor on his neck. Nothing to really show for accomplishments in his life, well other than a wife smarter than him and probably who would be appointed to finish his term if elected. But not to worry, Philly and Pittsburg will elect you. Our cities are crap, crime beyond reason, poor schools, and completely dysfunctional. Yet like the smiling Lemmings' in the picture, please Sir, kick me some more and also crap on us. Cause we know you care!
Oz and Trump. Trump has backed some real losers and this is a case of at least vote for someone who can do the job. In a sick way, I believe Trump backed so-so candidates to test if he should run in 24. If these folks can win, then he probably can. I have no desire to see Trump, Biden, or bedroom Kamala on any ticket in 24. How about some more common sense and youth?
Biden seeing dead politicians. Kamala the pass around who at least figured she was better as a mistress than using what little brains she has. Then Trump who has achieved his goal and knows the FBI Leadership (not the agents in the field) are bought and paid for and will continue to pursue any claim, real or made-up. America has to put this way to long soap opera to bed.
The trouble is, Democrats have zero for future leaders. They are the ultimate old white folks party with bought and paid for minority representation. The Republicans (I'm Libertarian) at least have been smart enough to get more minorities and youth for the future. Youngkin, DeSantis, Scott, Halley, etc. are all out there and if the Latinos, (not inx) stay, they will have a very large voice in Governing.
I think Frat Boy will win, simply because people are so stupid that they would vote themselves into poverty, slums, crime, poor education, no jobs simply based on a D behind someone's name. Oh wait, been there and still there. Is Oz so great, eh no! But at least he made his own fortune and remember, TV shows like politicians say and do what the audience want.
Time to vote simply based on what is good for the country and not just a D or R.
I'm in PA. I'm no Oz fan either, and yes, the choices we've been given are to vote for the party, not the candidate. No Republican loves Oz, they just hate Fetterman. But what's scary is that Democrats do like him as a candidate. I'm in a suburb of Philly that used to be swing and now leaning blue, and the enthusiasm for him is baffling. Also, I know Republicans often say "radical left," but he really is radical on policies. It's scary to think he has a good chance of being one of 100 U.S. Senators. He hasn't earned it, and the far-left agenda he'll bring to Washington is not representative of PA... or so I thought.
This breezy narrative style of reporting lends itself to blurring facts and turning public personas into the heroes and villains of Netflix originals. It makes no effort at objectivity, but rather flaunts partisan opinions, stating them as badges of identity and honor, such as this gem: “Before Trump, Republicans were supposed to be buttoned-down supply-siders who hated gays and abortion and didn’t trust the Soviet Union (sorry, Russia) and loved rich people and family values.” This style of journalism is one of the forces twisting the country against itself by inventing narratives where there are merely events and selling partisan hack opinions as gospel truth; it should be consigned to the dustbin of history.
This article saves its thesis for the end, and spends too much time on tangential questions.
What Fetterman owes Trump did not need a rehash of crudite or the current state of the horse race. It did need more reporting of Fetterman’s early political career and contrast with other PA politicians (the primary’s clash of styles was right there).
Is it all style? Is there anything to Fetterman that points to a broader political realignment? Is there a distinctive Democratic way of speaking to issues Trump brought to the fore? There’s a good idea here we didn’t spend enough time on.
When did Republicans “love Russia”? That’s a stretch.
How about a piece on how “Braddock” did under his stewardship?
Nice “Russia” smear. BTW I do love Russian literature and history, does that make me a fascist??
Trump was a successful businessman, writer, and television personality. No comparison
The election was extremely fraudulent, why not investigate some of the issues surrounding it, scared??
Watching the two parties scramble their historical voter bases can give you￼ vertigo. It is really incoherent, to see CEOs both funding the Democrats while trying to look sincere about ESG issues and race issues, but maybe it’ll work. As long as the GOP is influenced by Trump, and a train wreck as possible. What is clear is that the Republicans will never seize the cultural high ground with Trump stomping around in all their races. It is a fatal attraction and one they will not ultimately succeed for a party that needs to grow beyond its association with the church and take seriously the real issues tearing apart our culture. They are an issue, and the Democrats are too obsessed with power to worry about them.
Mao operated the same way.￼
