The most shocking part of the Trib- Review endorsement of Democrat Bob Casey are the words the editorial board used….It’s one thing for one of the leading Conservative newspapers in the Commonwealth to endorse Bob Casey, it’s quite another to say what they said about Tea Party Tom Smith:
Mr. Casey is being challenged by Republican Tom Smith. He was a Democrat committeeman as recently as 2010. Despite our policy differences with Casey, we prefer the Democrat we know to the Republican of convenience. (http://www.politicspa.com/newspaper-endorsement-open-thread/42880/)
Looks too me as one of the leading Conservative newspapers in Pennsylvania would rather have a Democratic controlled Senate then another Astroturfed Tea Party Senator. Could 2012 be the last stand of the Tea Party brand domineering the Republican Party?
