    Make up a damning headline, the left lackeys see it and run with it. Read the article, it's all insinuations with no specifics whatsoever. Another word for it is propaganda. Another word for it is LIES. But it sounds plausible to the emotional left, and apparently that's all it takes. icon_neutral.gif

    Didn't PA give us Santorum? For that alone, I think the gay community should give that state a pass on whatever they want to do.

    Technically it is cheating though.

    I read the article; and grated it it vague, but it would give some states the ability to split their electoral votes, while others(traditionally red states) don't, even if such states have a large enough blue base to warrant it(SC for example).

    I doubt it will get anywhere though; it doesn't take much to prove it absurd.

    We cannot afford to lose Pennsylvania. The extreme right wingers in its GOP must be stopped dead in their tracks. Pennsylvania must remain a blue, democratic state.

    This will not get passed. Basically the Phila Inquirer did an analysis and found that with this law in place and Obama winning the state with the margin he did he would lose the electoral split in Penna. Even most Republicans have a hard time selling it so it is a dead issue.
