  •  The GOP's hope was racism (4+ / 0-)

    That's why McCain spent so much time in PA.  He thought they were too racist to vote for Obama simply because Clinton won by a good margin in the primaries.  What the GOP did by giving a heavy dose of Palin and all of her neanderthal conservatism is make PA more blue than it ever was before.  PA is becoming more like New Jersey, a reliably blue state where suburbs and major metro areas overwhelm the rural counties.

    •  I suspect you're right about that (0+ / 0-)

      you can rephrase it as "ethnic older Reagan Dems", but it amounts to the same thing.

    •  McCain spent a week in PA because he ran out of $ (0+ / 0-)

      It was a hell of a lot cheaper to ride a bus around Lancaster than to fly to Indiana and Colorado.  He and his team knew the election was lost by October 20th, so why expend many millions of dollars flying around the continent on a lost cause?
