It’s been a few years since I awarded my Thanksgiving Turkey Awards. It’s time for a new round of giving.
A special one goes to George W. Bush for finally leaving office. We’re all very, very thankful for that.
Dick Cheney gets one for refusing to go away.
Barack Obama gets a Turkey for refusing to be the liberal his supporters and opponents thought he was. He gets the award for leading them on that he was liberal.
Joe Biden gets a Turkey for not thinking before opening his mouth.
Ed Rendell gets a Turkey for being a Lame Duck.
Jack Wagner and Dan Onorato get Turkeys for not supporting women’s right to choose.
Tom Knox gets one for being a predatory lender.
Jim Gerlach gets a Turkey for thinking he could beat Tom Corbett.
Corbett gets one for refusing to resign as AG while running for Governor.
Sam Rohrer IS a Turkey.
Joe Sestak gets a Turkey for being penny wise and pound foolish.
Arlen Specter gets a Turkey for…well, isn’t he just the personification of a Turkey?
Joe Pitts gets a Turkey because every woman in America would love to shove one up his…
Tim Holden gets a Turkey for being an elephant in a donkey costume.
Charlie Dent gets an award for voting against the working people of the Lehigh Valley year after year.
Jason Altmire gets a Turkey so he can be an uninsured patient in one of those hospitals where he used to work. Let’s see how good your care is once you aren’t covered Congressman.
The remainder of the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation gets Turkeys until they renounce their health coverage until every Pennsylvanian is covered by the same medical care.
Dwight Evans gets a special Turkey for intimidating good people into choosing not to run again for the State House. Being a legislative bully makes you a Turkey. Using the tactic to try and kill healthcare for all means you should also be buried under the mashed potatoes and gravy.
Any other nominations?
