15. Same exact situation in Pennsylvania, except...
... that it wasn't a high-profile guy like Hackett that got shut out by the DSCC.

The Powers That Be decided early on that Bob Casey Jr. would be the Democratic nominee to run against Rico "man-dog-love" Santorum. Pennsylvania Democrats were preemptively denied the opportunity to choose from a number of candidates in a primary - apparently primary elections are now un-Democratic. It is MUCH more Democratic to have candidates selected by Senators from New York and Nevada than by Democratic voters in PA or OH.

I'm disappointed that Hackett didn't tell the DSCC to shove it up their collective asses sideways, like PA Senate candidate Chuck Pennachio is doing.

And, as you have said, the liberal "street cred" of Brown or Casey, or Hackett, or Pennachio is NOT the issue. Un-Democratic policies ARE the issue.
