    are very much bold and educated and they are all highly seducing in arrived from head to heels to you which enable all the perfection on your sexual lust to get to love with on demand and we are all happy to meet your all search completed at low rates on demand.

  2. The next logical step in my flourishing political career will be to run for President of the United States. I’m counting on your continued support. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there! Buy me drink?

  3. I just found out about three Republican events:

    – Mike Kelly Lookalike Contest. Expected to be won by Pat Meehan.
    – Pat Meehan Lookalike Contest. Expected to be won by Mike Kelly.
    – Toomey Victory Seance. Members of Pat Toomey’s campaign staff call up the ghost of Arlen Specter and gloat.

  4. If only the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania had a large city with plenty of convention space and hotels where we could host this event. Oh well, let’s send some more money to New York again.

  5. What???? No Local 98 dance party hosted by the Geater with the Heater this year??? I guess Johnny is putting those funds towards his defense.

  6. Diano, you would know better than the rest of us as a Democrat Party insider about how bribes work. We Republicans don’t do that kind of thing on the Olympic level of corruption that Dems operate.

  7. The names of all attendees should be forwarded to the FBI for investigation. Nah, why bother, just lock down the whole hotel Saturday night and cart them all off to jail.

  8. The biggest joke ever. Totally sucks. But you get the privilege of paying a lot of money to have terrible time interacting with people you don’t like and can never trust.

  • Understanding that basic education funding should/will be first, what should be the next highest priority for the General Assembly?

    • Raising The Minimum Wage (25%)
    • Legalizing Adult-Use Marijuana (24%)
    • None of the above. Something Else. (20%)
    • Economic Development (14%)
    • Higher Education (8%)
    • Public Transportation (8%)
    • Workforce Opportunities and Innovation (2%)
