About Us

Launched in October 2001, is the most comprehensive resource for observers of the Pennsylvania political scene. It’s edited by Sy Snyder, a pseudonym for the people working on the site. Sy has no relation to Simon Snyder, the former governor of Pennsylvania, and no members of the new ownership group listed below participate in the site’s daily editing and content-related decisions.
The current owners, who purchased the site in January 2007, intend it to be a one-stop shop for political junkies in every part of the state. That means headlines updated throughout the day, press releases, features crafted by contributors from every side of the political aisle, our own original reporting, and tips from you, the readers.
That’s the key to’s continued success. You can impact how useful and relevant the site becomes. Send information about campaigns, elections and politics and we’ll respect your confidentiality. Email links, cartoons, news reports, or anything else you believe your fellow political junkies would enjoy taking a look at. Link your Web site to ours. And give us feedback, even if you don’t agree with what we say.
Thanks for making this site a part of your routine each day. And as always, any questions, comments, tips, or insults should be directed to Sy Snyder.

Comment Policy

We strive for open dialogue and debate, and in politics that isn’t always nice or friendly. However, comments on the site must not cross the line into personal attacks. Criticizing someone’s ideas or job performance is in bounds. Personal attacks are not. Nor are efforts to impersonate others. Likewise hate speech and excessive profanity.
Comments violating this policy will be edited or deleted.
Note: If a comment is challenged by another reader for violating this policy, the moderator will send a message to the email address associated with the comment, giving the commenter the opportunity to defend it. Thus, if the email address used to post a comment is invalid, you forfeit your ability to defend the comment.
