Former PA House Staffer - New to DU - Daryl Metcalfe Hater

Hello All,

I'm a former staffer for the PA House of Reps, and have worked on a congressional campaign for the PA-7th for Bryan Lentz who was defeated by that S.O.B Meehan

I write a blog called The Stubborn Mule

Figured you'd appreciate this little tid-bit

Yet, even in Pennsylvania, my home state, where I worked within the state legislature I experienced the vastness of the political spectrum and sheer absurdity of some members of the GOP. One in particular, the Chairman of the State Government Committee, Representative Daryl Metcalfe, who is the proud owner of ten brain cells, explicitly stated there will be no new state legislation on gun control. Thatís it, period. Even with children being laid to rest just a few hundred miles north of his legislative district, murdered from a weapon of war, he responds so arrogantly and definitively. Not even a discussion, no voice of dissent, just closing the door or in this case, the casket.

5. Welcome to DU and the PA group.

I like your style......"the proud owner of ten brain cells". You give that moran more credit than he is due. (Yes, moran is spelled properly as long as you are on DU. ) But what do we expect, since the gun lobby owns the GOP. He may live to regret that. I certainly hope so.

6. Welcome to DU!

I was sorry to see Lentz defeated. Meehan is a weenie.

Hope to see more of your insights here.

One question - are you sure about the 10 brain cells? I thought that was the sum total among the entire R delegation.

7. Welcome to DU, TimKeller!

I'll have to visit your blog.

The only person who I can never figure out how they got into office more than Metcalf is Corbett. Then, I remember that there is no Red or Blue in when there is plenty of Green.

8. Ok I might have been a bit generous with 10

Corbett will be the first Governor in decades to not serve consecutive terms. Thanks for all the support. Looking forward to chatting with you guys and girls more.

10. Welcome. It is a matter of time before Metcalf goes Postal.

The guy refuses to let anyone clean his office, because he is afraid they will find out all of his secrets.
