They’™re whining about Bob Casey, who is leading Rick ‘œFetch the Stick, Rex’ Santorum by 14 points. Now I’™ve got criticisms of Casey, too, but these guys are being pretty novel.

Santorum has been getting rotten press, and that’™s a good thing. In the last months he’™s been raked over the coals for connections to WalMart and Outback, for pandering in the Schiavo mess, for stealing money from the Penn Hills School District, for cheating on his taxes by claiming a homestead exemption for a home he doesn’™t reside in, etc., etc. Casey’™s done a good job of just lying low while Rick ‘œWhat a cute Puppy’ Santorum shoots himself in the foot.

Now the Repubs here in PA are whining, saying Casey is sending surrogates to pound Santorum on these issues, while saying nothing himself. First, they’™re giving a lot more credit to Casey’™s organization than it merits. But to say there’™s some sort of conspiracy going on, without addressing real ethical lapses, is, of course, a crock. But it is the usual crock of Republican bullshit, that’™s for sure.
