And in the category of "ya-never-know-what'll-circle-around-and-bite-you-in-the-ass" comes unwantd national attention for Gov. Corbett.
The Guv's brief comment this week suggesting a proposed state law requiring a woman seeking an abortion to first view an ultrasound isn't all that bad since "you just have to close your eyes" went viral on the Internet and drew significant attention from the likes of MSNBC and The Huffington Post.
You can read about it and watch a clip of the Guv's comments on my colleague Amy Worden's blog here.
My thought, as the Guv leaves Saturday for a trade trip to Germany and France is a new theme song. I'm thinking of something with apologies to The Beatles 1963 hit "All My Loving."
Here are the actual lyrics (and you can see a video of a performance).
And here are my suggested lyrics to a rip-off version, "All My Wanding."
Close your eyes and I’ll wand you.
Tomorrow it’s adieu
Remember, lawmakers run the show.
And then while I’m away
I’ll think of you everyday
And I’ll send all my wanding to you.
I’ll pretend that I’m kissing
Right-wingers I’ll be missing
And hope all our schemes do come true.
We’ll push guns and less spending
Abortions, we’ll be ending
Cuz we’ll send all our wanding to you.
All our wanding
All our wanding….oooo
All our wanding, we will send to you.
