The Political Blogosphere
Bernie O'Hare usually doesn't post on weekends, but he made an exception to note and link to Chris Casey's piece bashing Wayne Woodman, a sore spot they share in common. In Casey's mind, Woodman is a wealthy manipulator of local politics, which left to it's own, would be magnanimously run by Democrats. Democrats don't have a problem with wealth processed by their own, be it a Kennedy or kerry/Heinz, but when those Republicans spent their money, it can only be for evil intent. Seems as if Percy Dougherty is facing a primary challenge. In most circles, including Democratic, that's healthy democracy. In Casey's treatment, speculation presented as fact, Dougherty is being punished for his moderation. Rather than respect the potential challenger, Scott Aquila, for the accomplished and politically involved person he is, Casey assumes that he is a puppet, who must be paid for and controlled by Woodman. For my varied interests, it's way too early in the election cycle to concern myself with candidates, however, fairness and balance demands this short rebuttal.
