Meet Diana Irey

Untitled document

A Blog From The Core is new to me. The proprietor, Lane Core, Jr. sent me an email to call attention to an interview he just conducted with Diana Irey, the Republican challenger to John Murtha. It is well worth taking the time to read. Ms. Irey comes across as very sharp and very knowledgeable.

Now let's help her win.

    I know I may be off-base here, but isn’t this the exact same thing we (including myself) were criticizing about Kos and his Klan getting involved in with Lamont and Lieberman? I am not from Pennsylvania, so I don’t know if I feel right about shifting funds directly to Irey…

    Can somebody provide me the moral justification? I give to the RNC, and to the Congressional Victory-type funds, but funding a specific race in another state just seems… Wrong.

    Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to understand another point of view…

    For me at least, Murtha is doing things that are at least borderline criminal and supporting a candidate who opposes him in the general election is not a bad thing.

    On the other hand, trying to force out a reliable party guy because you disagree with one of that person’s policies in a primary election is dumb. But I don’t care if they give money, either.

    Does that make sense?

  3. BubbaB says:

    Yeah, it does. I guess it is also the difference that Lieberman’s own party is trying to force him out, with help from out-of-state, while Murtha is (hopefully!) being forced out by the other part, with help from out-of-state.

    I don’t know, George Soros (and others like him) have left a bad taste in my mouth, since they try to specifically affect elections not in their areas. (Boy, did that make sense?) But, Gaius, I definitely see your point, and, like I said, I have supported the RNC Congressional Victory fund (or whatever it is called…) I guess it makes sense to try and make a specific point against Murtha.
