We hereby declare a moratorium on flying pink ponies and poker-playing amphibious gophers.
What do you mean it's ridiculous to declare a moratorium on things that couldn't possibly happen anyway? Tom Corbett did it.
As another Election Day approaches, the Capitol press corps is - apparently without irony - dutifully reporting that Corbett will not impose another "moratorium" on Bonusgate charges.
You'd think it might dawn on them that more than a year has gone by without any Bonusgate charges at all. You'd think it might occur to them that whole "moratorium" thing last year was kind of a bogus smokescreen against accusations of partisanship. You'd think they might even take offense at the way they were duped, when Corbett convinced them the "other shoe" was about to drop .
You'd be wrong.
We admit we are flabbergasted. There's no question that Corbett deliberately created the false impression that charges were imminent a year ago. In some circles, deliberately creating a false impression is considered dishonest. And some circles actually frown upon dishonesty in their public officials. Not this one, apparently.
Team Corbett must laugh themselves sick daily that they're actually getting away with stunts like this.
