PA's Representatives
Shortly after moving here, I saw a reference in the local paper that described Pennsylvania as "Pittsburgh on the left, Philadelphia on the right, and Alabama in between." Lately I am starting to see what that means. First, Rick Santorum our junior Senator sponsors the "Partial-Birth Abortion" bill in the Senate. Now I hear on NPR that one of the state representatives is (one of ?) the sponsor(s) of the medical malpractice cap in the house. Throw in the odd attempt to ban the sale of French wine and spirits in the state run liquor stores, and the place starts to look like Texas.
Well, not that bad, but you get the idea.
