If you read my blog long enough, you will find out sooner or later I am not a Lisa Boscola fan.
I have always thought of her as a DINO (Democrat In Name Only).
Recently she has more than admitted it.
During the Kieklak fiasco, Boscola took to the airwaves as a caller to Ken Matthews radio show on WGPA. During her flustered call, she claimed she was more conservative than most Republicans. A commenter (Anon 11:25) to Bernie O'hare's blog gave a fairly good summary of the call.
Then last week, during the budget debate, Boscola gave a speech on the Senate floor calling out the administration for furloughing workers and not passing the budget. During her speech, she said it was a sham and a disgrace that welfare recipients will continue to get checks and workers won't. John Micek's Capitol Ideas blog had the quote and a comment. Boscola is so proud of her comments, that she has posted the video on her website. It is viewable here.
Now last time I checked, Democrats did not brag about being more conservative than Republicans and did not criticize people for receiving welfare.
So today I will be starting a new feature here at Down and Out in Bethlehem, the DINO Club.
Congratulations State Senator Lisa Boscola you are a charter member of the DINO club.
Please feel free to email me or leave a comment for nominations for future members.
