PoliticsPA’s Morning Buzz: 8/26 Edition

In today’s Buzz, Onorato calls Corbett a flip-flopper, the boys are back in town with a new podcast, and a new website aims at Toomey’s, er, supporters. This is Thursday’s Buzz.
On the trail

PoliticsPA Reports:

PoliticsPA: Onorato says Corbett has ‘flip-flopped’ on no-tax pledge
Podcast: PoliticsPA’s Alex Roarty, The Morning Call’s John Micek, and The Post-Gazette’s Tom Barnes bring us their weekly take of Politics As Usual.

Today’s Headlines:

Tribune Review: “The poll of 485 registered voters shows dissatisfaction with the direction of the state is at a 15-year high. Fifty-eight percent of those polled said the state is headed in the wrong direction. It and other polls show that, increasingly, voters believe President Obama and Gov. Ed Rendell, both Democrats, are doing a poor job.”

The Keystone Progress Action fund launched pornfortoomey.com after the owner of an adult entertainment site gave a donation to the Toomey campaign. The kicker is the slogan, “Because we recognize a pro at screwing people.”

Inquirer: Speaking of “adult” politics: “If you tried to donate online to the Republican slate for Washington Township Council early this week, you got a whole lotta Shy Love instead.”

Post-Gazette: Fodder for the Onorato campaign, Toomey, at North Hills stop, says campaign going well

The bad news continues for Marino… from WILK-FM, “Casino Marino” Plays Roulette With The Truth

Post-Gazette: “WASHINGTON — Ten weeks from Election Day, Rep. Jason Altmire is the first area U.S. House candidate to strike with a television ad — and it mostly touts the things he didn’t do in D.C.”
Today’s Opinions:
The Post Gazette looks at the Pirates‘ financial statements…they’re pretty bad, too.
The Inquirer doesn’t want gambling in Gettysburg: “Taking new steps to preserve Gettysburg’s place in history is the right thing to do, while also enhancing historic tourism in the area. Bringing roulette tables and slot machines anywhere near the battlefield, though, would be a mistake of historic proportions.”
The Patriot News labels a new “Party of No”
