UPDATE--Sullivan won 122-27. Alas poor Muni, we knew ye well.
You wouldn't know it from reading kathythes's blog on the blueblogbigot site, but she and raybo both despise Peter Sullivan, the Democrat from Ward 3 in Manchester, who survived a primary challenge to go up against Repbulican Muni Savyon in today's race to replace the dearly departed (for Pennsylvania) Mike Brunelle.
A former Alderman (after serving one term, he lost to fellow Rep Pat Long in 2007) and State Rep, Peter Sullivan is about as much anti-Buckley anti-Kathy as you're likely to find in the Democratic party. They despise him even more than I despise my fellow Republicans His Vileness and the Clown Prince (if such a thing is possible).
Peter Sullivan, some may recall, even chimed in with late information trying to bring raybo down back in 2007 when police could find nothing to hang around raybo's young-loving neck. That's why it was especially bizarre, nearly Kafkaesque, to read about raybo gloating about Sullivan's victory Wednesday. My guess is raybo would have voted for Muni had he lived in that ward; he often told me how he voted for Republicans back in the day, espcially against Dick Swett! But I digress. Suffice it to say that raybo and the good Sullivan are bitter enemies, almost as much as raybo and the bad Burling were enemies.
Always placing party ahead of personal animosity, however, kathythes urged Democrats to get out and support her namesake. Apparently not many people did. Turnout was pathetically low but in this most Democratic of all Manchester wards, expect Peterthes to pull it out.
Computers were not used, so as I blog at 7:20, ballots were being handcounted. It shouldn't be long before the good Sullivan is back.
No matter who wins, he'll most certainly be sworn in in time to provide another Manchester vote against the silly redistricting bill put forth by Mssrs. O'Brien, Mirski, Bettencourt, Bates, and MOSCA!
