Sestak to Challenge Specter in Dem Primary
Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) switched from RINO to DINO out of fear that he would be easily be beaten in the Republican primary next year because of his ridiculous vote supporting the massive pork laden faux stimulus bill. Now, after switching to Democrat to seek another term in the senate it turns out he will have a decent challenge for the nomination of that party. Rep. Joe Sestak announced today that he will oppose Specter. I'm no fan of Sestak (he had a reputation in the Navy of being a crappy boss resulting in demotion from Vice Admiral to Rear Admiral and sudden retirement), but I hope he gives Specter a hard bruising fight in the primaries. Let them spend lots of stupid money and then the most damaged and beaten man can face off against Pat Toomey in the general election. Both Specter and Sestak voted for the Stimulus bill and will be vulnerable on that front especially if the economy continues to stumble.
