Onorato gets a ‘Glee’-ful boost

Onorato gets a ‘Glee’-ful boost

Politics and entertainment more often intersect at the national level—or at least in high profile elections. But Pennsylvania’s often-sleep gubernatorial race is getting a dose of Hollywood this weekend.

Matthew Morrison, who stars on the Fox show “Glee,” will stump for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato Saturday.

An afternoon appearance at Carnegie Mellon University will be followed shortly after by an event at Point Park University.

    Fred M… there isn’t a poll unless Onorato has made one up himself.

    Reached for comment, Sue Sylvester said “What’s that smell Onorato? It’s coffee. It’s usually masked by the smell of fear.”

    “And you Rendell, I’m going to ask you to smell your armpits. That’s the smell of failure, and it’s stinking up Pennsylvania.”

    I hope he knows that with the state of the Onorato campaign that he will be required to sing the blues!

    So, going backwards into the past is the way to go? Heading back to tax cuts that don’t stimulate the economy? Heading back to taking away womens rights? Removing environmental regulations that protect our drinking water? Our food? Our medicine? A vote for Corbett is like driving the car in reverse.

    Not this tired “drive the car” analogy again. Yes. Backing the car up and turning it around is a FAR better solution than flooring it further into the ditch. Rendell has been driving us straight towards the solvency cliff for years.

    Maybe you and your liberal ideas want to Thelma and Louise it into the abyss for the principle of it, but the rest of us would like to see the state flourish again, not die in the flaming wreckage at the bottom of a fiscal canyon.

    What connection does Morrison have to Pennsylvania? As far I can tell, none. He is from California and was in a failed early 2000′s boy band called “LMNT.”

    Seriously, DanO?

    The latest effort by the Hollywood-based collective to get out the vote for some random behind-in-the-polls-Democrat. Always does more harm than good for the candidate.

    Corbett WINS! Philly HATES RAT Boy and he has a payback coming his way. Check his demoralized staff out at 20th & Chestnut Street HQ. They know…AND they are taking Rat Boy’s Money, which is a great thing too!

    Corbet wins and BURIES E$stey that little fuck face thief and his pig friends at Ballard Spahr. Hopefully, they will close down Cocklin’s Junk Barn in Phillipsburg, where that fagot sells ALL JUNK ALL THE TIME 24/7/365 to unsuspecting tourists going through PA”s version of West Virgina. Great place to get some from yer sister… heck they’ll even marry ya at Cocklins’ Junk Barn

    That was not the first time Onorato hung with a TV maven. He was on stage with MSNBC talking head Joe Watkins for the Sept 14 Students First PAC conference.Odd seeing a Dem and a Rep agreeing to soemthing, rare TV indeed. It’s on the websites video section….
