Tom Corbett Just Gave Everybody the Finger

A picture from Thursday’s budget signing goes viral.

So this went viral in Pennsylvania late on Thursday:


Oh, our hapless Gov. Tom Corbett! Of course he'd never flip off the state of Pennsylvania quite so egregiously. Instead, as AP explained in transmitting the photo, Corbett is "displaying his signature" after signing the state budget document. But it only takes one wrong move to earn notoriety in this state.

    why do old men point with their middle finger? Since I was a kid, I always thought that was weird

    Not a Republican,not a Corbett fan,this story is so Beavis and Butthead.

    And Phillymag’s leftwing zealotry continues. Corbett’s budget gives Philadelphia schools all the money they want and need, increases funding for the poor and balanced with no tax hikes. Nothing is ever good enough for these leftwing crazies at Phillymag so they smear him.

    I believe Mr. Corbett knew exactly what he was doing — flipping the bird to the General Assembly.

    Do all the old heads from this political party go to the same barber?

    Corbett is finished after November and he knows it, despite the millions in campaign funds the Kocks are pouring into his campaign…He is just giving back a little live to the people in PA who hate him…
