Many animals are nocturnal. Owls, moths, and foxes are good examples. Nocturnal means “active at night.” But it is not just animals that are nocturnal. We have some politicians who do their worst, most sleazy work when the lights go out, and darkness comes to town.
One excellent example of this behavior came at 4:00 AM from Doug Mastriano, who wants to be the state of Pennsylvania’s next Governor. Josh Shapiro is our candidate. Taking to Twitter like a gutless little thief in the night, Mastriano lashed out at Josh Shapiro, calling him a “little man.”
This was presumably because Shapiro refused to debate Mastrianno in a forum that would have seen a former aide to Donald Trump as the moderator. Now Mastriano surely knew why Shapiro rejected this forum. But fairness does not appear to matter to him.
Nor does it seem to matter to Mehmet Oz and his team of cruel nocturnal non-humans who persist in denigrating John Fetterman for committing the awful sin of having had a stroke.
These Republican candidates are the creatures of the night, slithering out to post their poison on social media. And if we want to keep the Senate, it is VITAL to donate to and help John Fetterman and Josh Shapiro.
As for Josh Shapiro, that is a vitally important race as well. Governors’ races do not get the same level of scrutiny and attention as other types of races, but we can’t forget them.
Mastriano is one of the worst candidates ever to run for Governor, and I cannot stress how awful it would be for Pennsylvania if this person won. He is an election denier and to call his ideas out of the mainstream is putting it mildly.
Shapiro and Fetterman are not letting these silly creatures get to them and that is good. Shapiro branded the late-night tweet of Mastriano a “stunt” which it was. But remember — it’s ALWAYS close in this state. And we can’t — we mustn’t — let either of these two Republican animals win.
