When Dan Onorato sent an email to local Democrats boasting about taunting visiting Republicans outside the Renaissance today with a sure-to-be-snarky postcard, recipients might have eagerly clicked toward the promised payoff, imagining the Democratic barbs Dan would aim at the convening conservatives:
'Welcome to the Pittsburgh region, where people who actually follow the Golden Rule elect Democrats like Dan Onorato, who act promptly and straightforwardly to make discrimination against gays a thing of the past, not part of our present ...'
'Welcome to Allegheny County, where Democratic elected officials -- like Dan Onorato -- reject the Republican principle of regressive taxation by ensuring that the wealthy never profit obscenely (and unlawfully) at the expense of the middle class . . .'
'Welcome to Allegheny County, whose citizens walk the walk on "loving liberty" by electing Democrats --including Dan Onorato -- committed to preserving a women's freedom of choice . . .'
Well, maybe a few Democrats with a particularly poor memories got excited, for a moment, while waiting for the image to load.
