in the midst of all the HC talk, this is a fresh topic.. Just saw this posted on ESPN. (probably in the no one cares news, but I find it interesting just the same).

Lynn Swann is expected to enter the PA Governor's race in PA. Could his popularity in PA get him elected? He knows a little about football, but how about running a state?

Ahmad Rashad is the one married to Bill Cosby's (heathcliff Huckstable's) wife.:)

Actually, they got divorced a few years ago.

Should he win the Republican nomination, I think he would do fairly well. Pittsburgh is typically the democratic stronghold for the state--and I dare say that he would do better than most Republicans in that area.

In other news, Heath Shuler is running for congress as a democrat in North Carolina.

I think the only area he would win would be the Pittsburgh area. The rest of the state (really only Pittsburgh, Philly and the Scranton/Wilksbarre area) tend to vote democratic. The current governor, Rendell, won the whole state except the Pittsburgh area and that is only because the republican he was running against was from Pittsburgh. Most of the state is republican but the population is remotely located except in the4 major city areas which tend to vote democrate.

Swann for Gov or whatever he is running for....why not.

Hell Tom Osbourne could probably blow somebody's head off in the middle of town square and the good citizens of Nebraska would dispose of the body, murder weapon etc. in a heartbeat.

Dont get me wrong, that is kinda cool.

Im surprised to hear the Pittsburgh is a Dem Town. I wouldnt have thunk it.

Man, someone did some real digging to find this thread.

FWIW, I just checked and 'Ol Swanny is still in the running on the Republican ticket against a Democrat incumbent in a Democrat state (However, a lot of people seem upset at the Governor so who knows?)

Republican ticket ... Democrat incumbent
Should you say "Republic ticket" if you are going to say "Democrat incumbent"?

Pardon me. Make that...

Swanny is running as a Good Guy against a leftist, tax-hungry, gun stealing, envoromental wacko who's affiliated himself with the scoundrels and is trying to get re-elected.


Better?

:)




(And with that, a thread that has been on the main BB for close to a year will be heading towards the DC forum)

He ran for governor here and lost in the primary. He's definitely lost his burst.

Should the democrats have used www.democratics.org for their party website instead of www.democrats.org?

I think we've figured out how you've achieved the level of intellectual detachment from reality that you have in your endless defense of BushCo. You really just have no interest in reality. Or did you never study grammer in school?

Party = Noun

Only one of these terms is gramatically correct to use to modify "Party".

Democrat = Noun
Democratic = Adjective

Now jaZ, didn't they teach you at Leftist indoctrination camp that when making that point to a man of the cloth, you should refer to the Right as "Publicans", giving them a frame of reference they can relate to? :p

When you're talking about names, they're all nouns. Looks like we have another grammar cop busted by internal affairs. BTW, grammar is spelled with two a's. You're going to do hard time for these language violations. ;)

And the name is "Democratic Party". So you lose on all possible accounts.

I'd say it's horrible on 1 level. Spelling.
