Murphy options laughable

| Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, 9:00 p.m.

After reading “Candidates line up for Murphy's 18th District seat in Congress,” I could do nothing more than shake my head and laugh.

On the Republican slate, we have Rick Saccone, Guy Reschenthaler and Kim Ward, all currently legislators in Pennsylvania. With the current state budget completed long after it should have been, it is pretty clear that these three have not fulfilled their jobs, yet they all want to move up the political food chain. Really? You three don't deserve to keep your current jobs, much less expect the voters to vote you into a better one.

And then we have Gina Cerilli wanting to run on the Democrat side. No knock on her, but what has she done? She won a county commissioner seat that she hasn't kept warm for a full term ... and a beauty contest or two. Give me a break.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
