I had hoped that turncoat Arlen Specter would win, since he was a much better target than his opponent. He lost. It does indicate that the electorate disapproves of incumbents.

Burns lost in the fight for Murtha’s old seat. The winner was Murtha’s lieutenant, so I suppose the voters in this highly gerrymandered seat expect the pork  to carry on coming home if they vote Dem. Ain’t gonna happen.

Rand Paul won easily. Palin endorsed Rand Paul instead of his GOP establishment opponent. This is a victory for her. She may have captured the Ron Paul wing of the GOP without having to associate with Ron Paul himself. Ron Paul is nutty; his son not so much. As a practicing eye surgeon with his own practice, Rand Paul can criticize Obamacare from a position of strength.
