Phila. Daily News columnist talks about the many candidates who are trying to position themselves to run against Corbett.

Here's some satirical commentary from PA. State Senator Daylin Leach about all of the politicians in NY City this week trying to create a buzz around their own candidancy for Governor.

Excerpts:

"It was fascinating. Without mentioning names (for fear of being proven wrong or beaten up), I think I can safely say that the names I was hearing ranged from interesting and credible to insane and delusional. You wouldn’t call some of these people Governor if their name was “Governor“. Then I had an epiphany. If ANYONE could say they wanted to be governor, why can’t I start some good rumors about myself?

I then immediately started tweeting rumors I had “heard” about me, knowing that nobody would suspect I was making them up myself in a desperate attempt to compensate for the lack of attention I received as a child. These rumors included:

= I’m running for Governor, but not of Pennsylvania.

= I’m running for the Bundestag.

= Pat Toomey has asked me to be his Vice-Senator.

= Governor Corbett calls me his ‘little minx’”."

1. I also saw the list of potential candidates

and I was really surprised at some of them. But it is early, and I do believe that many of them are just putting out feelers to see if there is any possibility. At least I hope that is what is going on.....I would hate to see a primary with so many Democrats running against each other.
