    It is not a "republican" new low. If it was a low blow at all it was by one individual who happens to be running on the Rep. ticket. Hardly represents ALL Republicans as you or the article (which is it?) would like us to believe.

    Secondly, as I read the article it appears to be a question of residency. Seems to me that if you are running for political office in a particular state, you ought to be a fulltime resident of said state.

    The article is entirely too short to make an accurate judgment whether or not this was an "attack" on a little girl or not. Which is typical of the liberal leftist media. That is their M.O.; they give only part of the story masquerading it as all of the story and say "See how wicked this REPUBLICAN is? Provide ALL the facts including context of the man's statement and then we'll talk, ok?

    Speaking of residency, has people's memories gotten that short. Remember the flapover the Clinton fiasco in New York?

    I dunno - that doesn't seem like a particularly dispicable remark to me.
    If the guy wants to represent Pennsylvania in Congress, shouldn't he live there rather than in Virginia? Btw, why Virginia?




    Now that (linkie) is a gerrymandered district!


    Sestak looks like he stands a good chance of winning because of Weldon's ethics problems.

    Sestak also has some very strong credentials:

    First it was the attack on McCain's wife.
    Then we had the attacks on Kerry's wife.
    Then there was the recent attack on Michael J. Fox by Rush Limbaugh (we've all seen the video on YouTube).
    Now we have this. I cannot say that it surprises me.

    Yes, the "liberal leftist media." It's a conspiracy.

    This issue is not about brain cancer. I do agree that this issue is about residency.

    If they do not live in the district they should not be able to run.
