Dominating, Congrats Phil
As the one who coined this phrase, unfortunately, lest any be misled, permit me to set the record straight, and to clear up any misconceptions.
In the 2010 elections, Republican Tom Corbett was elected Governor of Pennsylvania and Republican Pat Toomey was elected U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania. Keystone Phil is known on this forum as being a very strong advocate, defender, and supporter of Republican candidates in Pennsylvania.
Knowing that Keystone Phil was a big supporter of these two candidates, and of the Republican party in Pennsylvania, I simply posted
Congratulations Keystone Phil on the election of Tom Corbett and Pat Toomey
or words to that effect.
Now, surely, anyone who can read should know that congratulations are given to people for various reasons, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and, on a forum like this, about elections and politics, congratulations can be given to someone where they or their candidates win.
However, for some strange, unfathomable reason, forum posters picked up on this and turned it into something ridiculous. One of the posters asked Keystone Phil what he thought, and he said he thought it was "interesting," never even having the common courtesy of thanking me for congratulating him.
In 2012, being a well known supporter of Mitt Romney on this forum, if anyone on this forum would have congratulated me for Romney winning the Republican Presidential nomination, the first thing I would have done would have been to thank them for their congratulations.
Anyway, after all the stupid postings flying around this forum in this matter, I withdrew my congratulations to Keystone Phil, who obviously did not appreciate the congratulations anyway, and I gave the congratulations directly to Corbett and Toomey.
Try to be nice to someone, and where does it get you?
Anyway, these are the facts, plain and simple.
