Driven Away

Mike Diven just doesn't get it. When the press and Clean Campaign people called him on his misleading "family" photo showing a picture of him and his nephews, Diven responded with a classic politician's pretzel - "My grandparents passed away also so I can't pose with senior citizens?" This is the kind of retort that demonstrates exactly the kind of political leadership that we can't get enough of in SWPA. It would be horrible if a candidate actually decided to raise the bar, rather than limbo under it. And believe me, the sight of Diven (or Fontana) doing the limbo is not a sight we want to see. I know he's switched parties, but Mr. Diven could use a week in Bill Clinton's "The Many Definitions of 'Is' Workshop."
