Phylis Mundy for Speaker

The state house is in turmoil since Rep. Thomas R. Caltagirone of Berks County wrote a letter saying he will vote for John Perzel for speaker. It may not matter as some Republicans have gone on the record saying they won't vote for Perzel. Everybodys head is spinning over the machinations in Harrisburg that would make Machiavelli proud.

I say the hell with Perzel and DeWeese. Find a compromise candidate from the Democratic Caucus. Phyllis Mundy has always been a loyal Democrat and good government type and might be the person they all could agree on. No one can dispute that she knows the issues, especially health care, but the objection might be that she can't slam heads to get her way. Maybe our reps are tired of getting their arms twisted and facing retribution if they don't vote the party line. The one thing I can give her credit for is building a consensus on issues and being tough when she thinks the people are being screwed. I think she would be an outstanding Speaker.

She voted for the pay raise and would not answer for it, She should not be speaker, and when i toured the capitol with Musto, She was not reall that nice and was trying to be partisan, she was not cool like Musto. She is not a Good government type
The Des should chose greg or geroge vitali form Dleeware County, He took on DeWeese when he removed all the chairman who voted against the pay raise. Also he kept an online record of donations at his own cost until the State entered the 90s
and it really bugs me there is no way to access every vote.

Gort said...

As far as the pay raise goes. Most of them voted for it. The people who are in a position to take a leadership role have been there for a long time. Why not Phyllis?

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

Why not Vitali, lets support some of the few who did not vote for the pay raise, we need a new team not one of DeWeese's or Prezel's Croonies

Gort said...

Who's Vitale?

much more accomplished than Mean Phyllis

Greg Vitale is a good man. He's been there supporting verifiable paper trails for voting machines. The obvious solution is for a compromise candidate but DeWeese will never allow that. For people like him and Caltagirone it's all about POWER.

Doesn't matter, Dems win and then they hand over control because of lack of unity, or perhaps lack of courage.

Phyllis is a brilliant compromise suggestion. She has had a lock on an-otherwise Republican district, plays well with the boys across the way, is smart, and well-respected in Harrisburg. Great idea, Gort.

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

SHE IS A PAYJACKER NONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN LEADERSHIP

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

Why not Yuddy, he is better at being bi partican voted agiasnt the pay raise, and is a nice person unlike Phyllys
He does not even tazke his free car

Chris Casey said...

I've been following the Inky's live blog, DeWeese is pulling some strange shit, nominating a Philly R?!

Phyllis is the worse suggestion I ever heard. Are you an idiot? Number one, her district is 70% dem so let's clear the misconception up. Number 2 most people in her district can't name one thing she has done since being in office for 16 years, except for voting for the pay raise.

Gort said...

Just about everybody in the leadership on both sides voted for the payraise. When Phyllis beat Dietrick the district had a Republican registration edge but has been trending Democratic. The last time I checked the district was about 55-45 Dem. Yes, like you I'm just an idiot with a keyboard and an opinion. Thanks for your input.

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

the reaosn she won was becuas the guy was corupt, the distirct is not trending democrat, it became democrat after redistricting it was an incumbency protection deal between her and hassay
Gort i am advocating than none of the leaders should become speaker, and yuddy has just as much experince as mean phyllys

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

i guess it is a moot point now but still fun debating

mean old man said...

I'm angrier than Paris Hilton and Brittany Spears at a juice bar that the Commie Gort is pushing a broad for the honorable post of Speaker of the State House!!! Didn't we already taint my beloved America by doing this balderdash in Washington!?! In my day women didn't speak at all--unless it was to say YES to her hard working husband--and we all were the better and the happier for it!! It was alright if the Mom spoke to the kids but in the end in the household scheme of things it was Pop who was judge, jury and lord high executioner!! But I guess that wasn't good enough for the ladies--especially after they were corrupted by that ol bag Commie Eleanor Roosevelt!! Hell, there were no problems with womens issues in my beloved country until she went out looking for them---and I hated it!!! Now it seems that the men (and I use the term loosely) have even been hypnotized by these feminist subversives---and God help us all if Mrs. Clinton becomes President again--it was bad enough with her in charge for the first eight years--I couldn't stand another four!!! DAMN IT!!!! So all you fairy namby pamby liberal commie men out there who shoved a national Feminazi house speaker down my throat--get some guzungas down there and be real men for a change!!! Next thing you know they'll be pushing for a female Pope--that's when I'm heading off to the moon but even that's ruined for me because of your female astronauts!!!! Parents--stop giving your little girls books--give them an e-z bake oven--stop giving your boys dolls--give em a toy m-16! Our nation's future depends on it!!! To Hell with Pelosi, Mundy and the Commie who runs this site--and everyone who reads it--I hate you all!!!!

bill f's damaged ego said...

hey Bill Fits - angry much? Saying "Mean Phyllis" 3 times in a single comments thread? Seriously, you need to get over yourself and double the dosage on whatever medication you are taking. Or maybe buy a Hummer to compensate - just a suggestion.

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

I met her and she was mean, also most of my cooments are done in humor and if you knew and were not an anonymous coward, you would understanbd that, Besides seeing phyllis at her work place in haburg, something that i assume you have not done you are in no way credible to judge me, unfortunately I will be going back to school this week and will have less time to offer my well sought after insights

Bill Fitzpatrick said...

and how would phyllis being mean damage my ego, I did not debate her or ever think she was going to lose to the great Codera, i just repectfully listened to and observed her as I did other people
