What?!!!

Tom Corbett wants to make life easier...for women.

What?!!!

Tom Corbett reminds why he has a very good chance of winning the governor's race -- the 1954 governor's race:

And, hey, here’s a quote from last month: “I think a lot of people want to be able to walk into a grocery store, particularly, a lot of the women, want to go and buy a bottle of wine for dinner, go down, buy a 6 pack or two 6 packs, buy dinner and go home rather than what I described as 3 stops in Pennsylvania.”

The clip, from an episode of The Sam Lesante Show in late July, was posted to YouTube Tuesday by Fresh Start PA, a Democratic political PAC working to elect Tom Wolf and other Dem candidates this year. The Lesante Show is a Hazleton program from the almost eponymous Sam-Son Productions.

Maybe it's premature nostalgia as his one term nears its ignominious end, but I don't think Gov. Corbett is an evil guide. He's just seriously out of touch and takes on the small stuff -- I mean, who doesn't think "Amish Mafia" is dumb and offensive -- while the bigger problems, like the real issues of equity that we saw raised in Ferguson, go untouched.

At least after January, he'll have plenty of time for trips to the liquor store, the beer store, and the supermarket. Or,  his wife will, anyway.
