Apologies to Massachusetts (Again)

I’m thinking of having some cards printed.

To the people of Massachusetts
Sincerest Apologies
-Pennsylvania

It started with this, back in July, when the sanctimonious Rick “Finest mind of the 13th century” Santorum (R-PA) decided to announce that the root of all sin was firmly planted in the Bay State. The issue was the Catholic Church priest pedophilia scandal. The victims were the children. The target for Senator Santorum, though, was not the perpetrators of these vile acts, but the people of Massachusetts.

''It is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political, and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm"
-Rick Santorum (R-PA)


The obviously deluded Santorum failed to mention that Boston was only the “center of the storm”, in that the good people of Massachusetts have been at the forefront of the investigations into this horrible abuse.

Did you think Pennsylvania is exempt from this scandal, Ricky?

Well, lookie here, Senator. And here. Seems that we have our share of pedophile priests right here in our own state, now doesn’t it?

Just to be clear, Rick, Philly is in PA. I know you don’t get back often.

OK. So that was my first apology, back in July when the oblivious Senator Santorum spewed his vile accusations at the good people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

I know this is not much, but it’s a start: Sorry, Mass. Our Jr. Senator sucks.

Why bring this up now?

Because something IS being done to help the victims of child sexual abuse (child internet pornography) by the Jr. Senator from MASSACHUSETTS, and co-sponsored by Senator Johnny Isaacson, a Georgia Republican. And damn, Ricky, the abuser was from Pittsburgh (That’s in Pennsylvania). I am not blaming Pennsylvania for this, obviously. This type of scum can be found in all 50 states. Just trying to help Ricky out with the geography.

So what is Senator Kerry doing?

See video of Senator Kerry and Masha’s press conference, and read the story here.
From the Boston Channel:

Sen. John Kerry has found a powerful ally in a young girl from Russia in the fight against child pornography.
[snip]
After five years, the FBI caught up with the Pittsburgh man and he is now in jail. More than 500 photos of her were posted on the Internet -- pictures still being downloaded today and considered to be collector's items by pornographers.
[snip]
"What does it tell you about Washington's misplaced priorities that the penalty for downloading songs off the Internet is three times what the penalty is for downloading pornography, child pornography?" Kerry asked.


And from Senator Isakson:

"What happened to Masha was a terrible tragedy that should never be repeated," said bill co-sponsor Sen. Johnny Isakson, (R-GA). "Unfortunately, reminders of her horrific ordeal remain posted on the Internet for all to see every day."



To be fair to Senator Santorum, I did check to see what legislation he has sponsored to fight this horrible abuse of our children. How many bills has the blowhard Boston-basher proposed to help save our children from child pornographers and pedophiles?

Check for yourself or trust me. I’ll give you a hint. It starts with ‘Z’ and ends with ‘ero’.

So, again, Massachusetts, since you won’t hear it from our Senator, I’ll just have to say from the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I’m sorry. Not that Masha’s abuser is from Pittsburgh. It’s a fabulous city in a beautiful state. It’s also my home. No, this pervert could have been from anywhere. The apology comes because, for all his bloviating, I haven’t see the Jr. Senator from Pennsylvania voice his support for this bill. And until I do, his inaction is just further proof that he’s no more interested in helping child abuse victims now than he was last summer.

And come this fall, you all will have an opportunity to thank Pennsylvania.

If you’re reading this, Rick, sign on to this one, too. I’m only ordering enough cards to get through November.

Comments:
On behalf of my state, I thank you.
