What has Swann done to merit running one of the biggest states in the US, besides the obvious qualification of catching long touchdown passes? Well, he apparently campaigned for Bush in Pa. (I guess he wasn't good enough.) Sorry Lynn, I would assume you keep riveting us from the sidelines, letting us know what the head coach told you at half time, rather than deciding policy for the Commonwealth.
And, why is Swann a Republican anyway? Well, here is what he says:
"They provide platforms, and they don't give people crutches to walk on," he said. "They give them tools to build. "
I can only assume some of those platforms are the following: No public transit. Dirty air. Under funded public schools. No health care. Less overtime pay.
Yeah Lynn, the Republican-driven change from a society that rewards work to a society that rewards wealth certainly does not give people crutches. It gives them chains.
