Missing Republicans, Day 2

House Speaker John Perzel is so MIA.

"The Speaker is unavailable today and probably the rest of the week," writes Al Bowman, the GOP spokesman-in-chief, in an email to Mario Cattabiani.

Is he meditating? Is he milking cows? Is he twisting arms and taking names?

We don't know, but we miss ya, Mr. Speaker (for now). Send proof of life.

We do, however, know what Majority Leader Sam Smith is up to.

Hunting. Yes, deer hunting with his son.

Steve Miskin, Smith's spokesman, reports that the younger Smith took a shot but missed.

Good to know. But what about that majority his father's trying to hang on to?

"I think it’s too premature for Democrats to come down here and measure the drapes," Miskin said of the Capitol’s plush Majority Leader’s office suite. "It’s not over until it’s over, and it’s not over yet."

Is it just me, or does he sound like Bluto from Animal House?

"Over? Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is!"

Carrie ...

I loved today's comments. TY.

John Perzel as Bluto .... LOL

Don't you find it ironic that NOW the Republican machine wants every vote to count. A week ago, they wanted every vote thrown out.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor ? Hell, no!

Isn't it funny that the democrats now want every vote to count as is but on Monday they filed a law suit saying all absentee ballots shouldn't count and said that that election should be thrown out?

During the hearings last week the woman from PENNDOT said that the Democrats were dispensing confidential information about people's driving records that they obtained from PENNDOT. Isn’t that illegal? What happened with that?
