Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Specter goes down in PA primary

Benedict Arlen switched from the GOP to the Democrap Party last year, saying then that due to abysmal polling numbers against Pat Toomey in the GOP primary, he was not willing to subject himself to the Republican electorate.  He switched, thinking that (a) he would run unopposed in the Dem primary and (b) he could expect a boost from Obama.  Neither happened.  Sphincter fell to Joe Sestak last night, 54%-46%.  Yet another loss by a BO-endorsed candidate.

This, my friends, is a double-edged sword.  On the one hand, it is highly satisfying to see an opportunist amoral career politician like Specter go down in flames in a primary, an undignified way to go.  On the other hand, it’s likely that Sestak will poll better than Specter would have in November.  Yes, current polls show Toomey beating Sestak, but there’s a lot of time between now and November.  Plus, PA has a bad habit of voting Dem when push comes to shove.  Chances are that Toomey would have killed Specter, but I believe Sestak will prove to be tougher competition.  Time will tell.

If Toomey does lose in November, the silver lining is that Snarlin’ Arlen has finally been put out to pasture and out of our misery.
