Governor Tom Corbett, likely believing he was doing his part to help the Republican Party appeal to women, said one good reason for the state’s liquor reform law is that it would allow women to pick up liquor faster so they could get home and make dinner. You see, in Pennsylvania, you can buy liquor only from state-owned stores. By making wine and beer more easy to purchase, the little lady can have dinner on the table in a jiffy.

“I think a lot of people want to be able to walk into a grocery store, particularly, a lot of the women, want to go and buy a bottle of wine for dinner, go down, buy a 6 pack or two 6 packs, buy dinner and go home rather than what I described as 3 stops in Pennsylvania.”

The clip, from an episode of The Sam Lesante Show in late July, was posted to YouTube Tuesday by Fresh Start PA, a Democratic political PAC working to elect Tom Wolf and other Dem candidates this year. The Lesante Show is a Hazleton program from the almost eponymous Sam-Son Productions.

      I grew up in the 50s–to this day I can’t watch “I Love Lucy”. It gives me flashbacks.

        Those were the dark ages. Remember Ward Cleaver reading the paper in the parlor while Mrs. Cleaver resplendent in pearls, sun dress and heels, made dinner? Those were the role models of the era. Sadly a lot of women tried to fit that impossible mold.

          in truth, women are still expected to fit an impossible mold…either sexy Sex Kitten, or sexy Business Lady, or sexy Soccer Mom…when are we just going to stop being stupid and grow the f up? that’s what i’m wanting…a grown up society…i’m tired of living in a overly aggressive, hormonally explosive teen age boy’s wetdream…enough with the ass cheeks hanging out and the guns everywhere and the obnoxious snotty-ass lying liars on television…enough with the childish nonsense…god…it is time for this nation to grow up…

          all right…i think i am a bit cranky…i bid you all a good night, fellow travelers… 🙂

    If I’m not mistaken, this is the same idiot who told women that they could just turn their heads and not watch while they were being given MANdatory vaginal ultrasounds.

      Corbett is truly a clueless idiot.

      • mmaynard119 August 29th, 2014 at 5:03 pm

        Mark – let’s not go insulting clueless idiots like that.

    • William August 28th, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      I think you’re right.

    • OldLefty August 28th, 2014 at 2:56 pm

      That’s right.

      My neighbor’s daughter was a student at the University of Pittsburgh when he was coming to speak.
      The students were told , “No protest signs”.
      They wrote in the Pitt News, “Why can’t he just turn his head and look away”?

        That’s funny! I hope it haunts him forever.

    Well no matter what Republicans say, they will always have faux gnues to back them up.

    He will not tax natural gas extraction but did raise the tax on gasoline.
