« Go Thank Colbert | Main | Prince Spaghetti is Endorsing the Following Bucks County Candidates ... »


I was on hold for 40 minutes but never got on. I would have enjoyed asking him something like this:

Mr. Casey, I was impressed with two statements that you have made so far this morning.

One, in talking about gun issues, you said that you weren't the kind of person who would tell one interest group one thing and another something else.

Two, you said that you were comofrtable taking money from the same PACs that give to Santorum because you aren't the kind of person who would shade or alter your views just to get support.

That's great and here's my question.

A little over 18 months ago, when you were running for Treasurer, you told the Catholic Bishops that you opposed granting adoption rights to gays.

But, a few months later, after getting elected and then deciding to run for the Senate, trying to get their support, you told a leading Gay and Lesbian advocacy group that you supported full adoption rights for gays. Then, last month, you said in the televised Senate Candidate debate that you would not support repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, which, among other things, denies all legal benefits to gay couples under federal law.

So, you can, I am sure, see why some people question just what your current views are on equal rights for all of our citizens.

"Independent Whore"? I think you are half right.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
