A Cappozola Moment

Jim Capozzola over at The Rittenhouse Review is thinking about running against Arlen Specter in 2004 because there are no Democrats in Pennsylvania who seem willing to run against him. Over here on the left side of the state things seem just as bad. We have a local primary election coming up on May 20, and in the township where I live there are apparently 4 seats open on the Council this year, and there is not a single Democrat even vying for a nomination to each seat. There is also only a single Republican vying for each seat, apparently rendering the entire democratic process moot.

Now I don't even know what a township is, but it seems to me that there ought to at least be another voice heard in the election process. So far it's encouraged me to go to the Allegheny County Democratic Committee website to look for ways to try to encourage Democratic infiltration into the North Hills.
