10th Pennsyvania CD update

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty was at the Chris Hackett HQ in Dallas on Saturdayto stump for him and John McCain. When I arrived the place was a beehive of activity with close to a 100 people manning the phones and milling about.
Pawlenty praised McCain saying "history calls out leaders." He recapped McCain's bio , energy plan and keeping taxes low. He then ripped into Barrack Obama asking “What have you done, Sen. Obama? What have you run? The answers are not much and nothing.” When asked about Joe Biden as the VP he said he thought that he picked a "mentor." “There’s only one commander-in-chief, a mentor can’t be your vice president.”
He also praised Chris Hackett calling him "an outstanding candidate for Congress.”
I put up more photos of the event on Facebook.
In other campaign news Hackett said he and his wife will be doing a 5 day bicycle tour of the district starting in Milford going up Rte 6 to Hawley and Honesdale. Tonight he will be at the opening of the Luzerne County GOP HQ in the Bicentennial Building on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre at 6PM.
And the CV has a rundown of Hackett's and Congressman Chris Carney's differences on energy policy.

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!

It's not a good thing to smoke dope at 10:56a.m. or take any other kind of hallucinogen at that hour.

Although I like your train of thought, McCain is against equal pay for women and as far as women's rights; need i say more.

You'll have to let me know where you procure your stash.
