This story From PA really raises my Blood pressure!
"The family of a Marine who was killed in Iraq is furious with Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll for showing up uninvited at his funeral this week, handing out her business card and then saying "our government" is against the war...."
"In a phone interview, Goodrich said the funeral service was packed with people "who wanted to tell his family how Joe had impacted their lives."
Then, suddenly, "one uninvited guest made an appearance, Catherine Baker Knoll."
She sat down next to a Goodrich family member and, during the distribution of communion, said, "Who are you?" Then she handed the family member one of her business cards, which Goodrich said she still has.
"Knoll felt this was an appropriate time to campaign and impose her will on us," Goodrich said. "I am amazed and disgusted Knoll finds a Marine funeral a prime place to campaign.""
All this is going to do is to strengthen the GOP's resolve to take out the Rendell administration. Does Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll really thing she can beat Lynn Swann'? Now, if Bill Scranton can hold up his end I would be happy! Couple this incident with Rendell's reluctance to extend voting for soldiers abroad , and he may be facing real trouble.
