Good News From The Keystone State

So, it's been a good couple of days - Karl Rove and the Administration are being slammed against the ropes (it's been a real joy to read Americablog and Daily Kos for the past few days), the sheer orgasmic delight of watching reporters grow a backbone at McClellan's press briefings, and then we get word of a new poll out by Quinnipiac, showing that Pennsylvania isn't quite as blinded as I thought it was.

Among other things, the poll shows Casey comfortably ahead of Santorum 50-39, in what is arguably one of the most important Senate races in 2006. Despite this margin, Santorum once again defended comments he made about the city of Boston being a nurturing environment for pedophiles. I guess Rick isn't too concerned about that Presidential bid he once contemplated, and has taken to making wholesale enemies wherever he can.

The Quinnipiac Poll also shows:

* By a 64 - 27 percent margin, Pennsylvania voters say President George W. Bush should not nominate for the U.S. Supreme Court someone who would overturn the historic Roe v Wade decision.

* 53 percent of Pennsylvania voters say that Sen. Arlen Specter, in his position as Senate Judiciary Committee Chair, should consider a Supreme Court nominee's position on issues such as abortion and the death penalty.

* Voters disapprove 53 - 44 percent of the job President Bush is doing, virtually unchanged from April 20.

None of this concludes that Democrats are out of the woods, or in any way ready to take advantage of these opportunities as of yet, but there's a light.
