Voter Turnout Low Across Philadelphia

If Election Day comes, but no one comes out to vote, did it really happen? In traveling to several different polling locations across Philadelphia, the lack of enthusiasm was stunning.

Michelle Obama, PA Dems Make Final Push To Get Out The Vote In Philly

Michelle Obama is not what you would call a natural politician. With the loquacious Guvna, Ed Rendell, emceeing for a good portion of the night, and a host of Philadelphia/Pennsylvania pols making cameos at Monday night’s “get out the vote” rally at the University of Pennsylvania, it would not have been surprising to anyone if President Barack...

Wednesday’s “Porn Raid” didn’t only affect makers and sellers of chat for sad people and videos for the rest of us. It also messed up a “mafia-like” organization who “forge paperwork, yank numbers” in the business of…toll free numbers! Sounds like a lot of good, honest stuff was going on at 7th and Chestnut.

PA-Sen Notes: Weekend Endorsements, Statements, Debates

What’d you do this weekend? We obsessed over the Senate race. That’s how cool we are. (For serious.) Here’s what happened: The candidates held another debate on Friday.

See last night’s debate? It was OK, right? Yeah, just OK. Here’s the breakdown of what you need to know, especially if you were at a bar getting ready for the Phillies game and/or watching Seinfeld and missed said slobberknocker.

PA-Sen: Don’t Call It A Comeback (Actually, Do)

PA-Sen: Don’t Call It A Comeback (Actually, Do)

Sestak’s ‘Crappy’ Ad

Sestak’s new ad brings Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race into the place we all knew it was headed for some time now: A shit bag. Said ad “Belle” represents a new chapter in the democrat’s straight-ish talk.
