I do not compare Pepper to Lincoln. I compare someone's claims about Pepper with someone else's claims about Lincoln. I have no idea whether Pepper is the loser that the poster claims she is. I know that the claims made about Lincoln are in accordance with the traditional stories about him. I find myself more convinced of the claims about Lincoln than I do the claims about Pepper but my being less convinced about her doesn't make the claims about her inaccurate.
My point was that being a loser does not preclude one from accomplishing significant. In fact, I believe I'm justied in extrapolating that in order to accomplish something significant, it is nearly given that one must be a loser.
I might further quote Ben Franklin who said, "I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong."
Whether Pepper is a good candidate for Lt. Governor or not is a question either of opinion or to be answered by history. wasn't impresssed with what I heard her say (sorry, Mary P.) but neither am I impressed by what I have heard our current president say.
As for your claim that I "mhujst" be a Tea Bagger - while I find myself agreeing with many of the Tea Party's platform positions, I think they are going about things in a misguided manner and/or that their focus is in the wrong place. What they are doing may be necessary, expedient and even successful - but it is - in my opinion - too focused on winning elections - and I'm not sure to what extent elections are even the "real" battle or the means by which to win the "war."

K Lady,talk about jokers you sure sound like one! To compare Jean Pepper to Lincoln is a complete joke and a sad one at that, you must be one of the "Tea Baggers" who just got interested in government in the last few years since a black man was elected president. Lincoln did'nt strap a matress to his backside and put a coin machine on his side or marry some gents with a few dollars(Root, English, and the current sire)just to make a name for himself like Jean. This woman is a joke, she ran against senator Casey for PA state treasurer and even her "friends" knew she was going to get her clock cleaned, no one wanted to tell her no then and no one will tell her now but she is in for a reality check again.
Read your history book and study history through the years, no where will you find anyone of success that followed the path of "hooking up with some rich guys" and working a stint at Merill Lynch and then becomming Lt. Gov. of any state in the union.
Jean talks with that fake southern drawlll and it sounds so phoney, there are not many she will associate with the day after the election that attended the local tea party. Funny, yes she is funny in a "different" kind of way.
Some women who are truely a success story are locally Joyce Savoccio, Judy Lynch, Denise Robison. On the national level Hillary Clinton will go down in history probably as eaqual or higher than President Lincoln, her history dates back to 1974 with the Watergate proceedings, her time as first lady, and her run and almost win for the presidency to her current job of mending relations with foreign countries that Bush destroyed and she is doing a fine job I might add!
I admire your new found quest for history, just a caution, read it well and re read to understand it.
Darell Metcalf will probably be Tom Corbetts running mate and Jean Pepper will ride off into the sun with another "butler" or furniture stripper.

I recently read that this woman says "a vote for me is a guarantee that we will get a woman as the PA Lt. Gov.", what an issue to champion, vote for a person based on gender, can you imagine what the press would do if a male or a minority said something like that.
From what I remember of this woman when she worked at Merrill Lynch she was not someone we need in the position of Lt. gov., she was comical to those who worked around her but not taken very seriously.
There must be some people in the race who are better prepared than Pepper.

someone would have to believe two lies.....in order to make meaningful racist comments toward you......

1. that your name is Oppenheimer
2. that you are Jewish.

It's obvious that neither is true and your roundabout falsehoods and attempts at disguise are childish at best. How old are you? 50? 60?

Time to grow up.
