I'd like to thank everyone in the newly gerrymandered 12th Congressional District (much of the North Hills extending all the way to Johnstown) who voted for Republican Keith Rothfus over Democrat Mark Critz. Rep. Rothfus is serving the GOP-engineered district well. In fact, his first vote as a U.S. congressman was to say "no" to Hurricane Sandy relief funding.
So congratulations and thanks for nothing, Tea Party enthusiasts and all-around dumb people alike; this is your reality. Sixty-six other Republicans agreed with Rep. Rothfus on this vote (including a certain recently failed vice presidential candidate). Way to pick 'em, people.
