Did anyone notice this from last Saturday? I meant to write about it at the time, but I was safely ensconced in the real world. The New Agenda (aka PUMA-lite) had a confidential scoop.
a confidential source,who is “in the know,” informed us that the reason that Matthews did not run for the PA senate seat was as follows: his advisors were concerned that he would get smoked by two strong opponents: TNA (womens group) and the PUMAs – yes this is true. So, if you think that our work together isn’t making an impact, think again!
And if you believe this I have some mortgage backed securities to sell you.
I have a friend who has done some work for NARAL/Pro-Choice America and I mentioned this “scoop.” Her response? “The New Agenda? Never heard of them.” After I explained they were an anti-woman-lynching (not anti-woman, pro-lynching, but anti-[woman-lynching]) PUMA offshoot, she looked it up and we had a good laugh. I kept my ear to the ground here in PA about the senate seat and the Matthews run, and nobody ever even mentioned the PUMAs. They are quite assuredly a non-factor.
Did they think Matthews was intimidated by there 20-woman mega-protest in Denver? The self-delusion would be remarkable if it weren’t a hallmark of the PUMAs.
