So Who Won Debate at the State -Towne, Callahan or Dent?

Stuck at a gaming meeting in Northampton County, I missed last night's Debate at the State among incumbent Congressman Charlie Dent. Despite a bad cold that is burning a hole in my chest like a hot iron, I really wanted to go. After my meeting ended, I did drive down to a magnificently lit State Theatre, but it was too late for me. So instead of telling you what happened and who won, why don't you tell me? What jumped out at you? Any funny moments? Is it true Joe Owens sang a Dirge for the Phillies?

Good debate. Dent has superior issue knowledge. Callahan reads everything which is distracting. Towne is bizarre. Pretty much the way we all thought this election would shake out. Dent by 10 points...at least.

Callahan won hands down. He asked folks if they are better off today than they were when they elected Dent.

That answer will drive their votes.

Chalk up an easy win for Callahan. Dent sounded confused and looked lost.

THis should tell you all you need to know. Another bitter, desperate Callahan supporter. Callahan bombed all the debates. He is surprisingly bad at thinking on his feet...or maybe it is thinking for himself that he is terrible at.

Callahan whined like a little baby about Charlie Dent.
Even my daughter saw through him.
Dent was knowledgeable and kept his composure, I don't know if I would have been able to be so calm.
Towne held his own.

He's whined and interrupted at all the debates. It is really embarassing.

Callahan would be lost without his notebook. You'd think by now he would not need to use the notebook - he should have his information down pat. Goes to show he is an empty suit that will vote in lock step with the Democratic leadership that has raised the debt by $8 trillion since Pelosi became SOH.

Has to double check the "facts" as provided to him by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The voters of the district have already lost this race. One's a death-obsessed war monger with lots of special interest money who feigns conservative fiscal values, but voted to bail out banks, many of which are magically reporting record profits now. Another is local hack who ran his well-heeled city's finances into the ground, can't form coherent sentences and has lots of special interest money. The third is an unelectable, Lerch-like libertarian caricature, whose flash card understanding of the philosophy ultimately demeans its legitimate points. A write-in vote for John Dillinger would be more constructive.

Of course Dent had information at his finger tips, he is an incumbent. If the questions were about local government Callahan would have had the edge hands down. Be that as it may Callahan was really good. I liked his poise, his honesty and charisma. He will make a fine Congressman and within 6 months will be further on the issues than Dent.

Seriously???? You have no clue what it means to be a legislator. Everyone goes into office thinking they are going to make a change. Well, maybe you failed social studies in HS because one person cannot make changes that quickly. It just doesn't happen like that. Get a clue and wise up. Charlie Dent is the only one qualified for this office. Callahan can't get his head out of local politics and Towne, well, I'll just be nice here and say he's way out of his league......
