    He shouldn't have even run again in the first place. What is it about the Washington culture that is so addidcting that an 80 year old decides he would rather have 6 more years than retire?

    Yeah, I don't get it. 80 years old, having to change parties to have a chance - why did ANYONE vote for him.

    Good riddance you old piece of sh!t.

    It is - and the attitude that the Democrats somehow "lost" this one is beyond me.

    What possible "spin" could it be to express happiness because a man who couldn't decide which party he really wanted to belong to has been defeated?

    The White House endorsed Spector and wanted Sestak out of the race which led to allegations of a job offer to Sestak to exit the race. The political machines and organized State Democratic Party endorsed Spector yet Sestak still won. In the end, it was a win/loss because Sestak gives the Democrats a better chance to win in November (win) versus his Republican opponent, yet it was a slap at the White house and the powers that be in an anti-incumbent year. (loss)

    I think from both sides, we can say these are the types of politicians that we can be glad when their reign comes to an end.

    Agreed. But who can blame Spectre? Congress is like crack to these politicians. One taste and you're hooked! He's no different that the rest of the bunch who are all willing to sacrifice their dignity (not to mention their families') and behave like fools in fromt of the whole country just to stay in office for another term. Combine their egocentric addiction to power with the massive infusions of cash from their campaigns (which begin the day after they are elected) and you get a toxic mix that poisons the whole system.

    This goes for R's and D's, and Spectre has simply illustrated for all of us how little difference the letter makes, and how little these clowns (90% of them)care about honor and self-respect. He's a poster boy for what's wrong with Congress.

    Nail on the head post, those people who today are running our country, R&D both, are noithing but self serving Vermin, all of washington needs to be replaced with fresh faces who fear the voters, the Grinning Swine Dogs who now dominate the Congress, the Senate and the Socialist Marxist Communist Sh!tist White House need to be replaced for the survival of America, failure to "kick them out" will result in "A Third World America".

    I certainly hope you're bracing yourself for disappointment.

    And if you're going to call it a "pathetic attempt at spin," you could at least bother explaining yourself. I can understand if you're a bit risk averse due to the frequent beatings you receive around here, what with your elementary understanding of politics and frightening ignorance of history, but humor the rest of us, won't you?

    I'll lay it out for you:

    - Democrats hold on to Murtha's seat in PA-12, pulling out a comfortable win in a very culturally conservative district (the only one to switch from Kerry to McCain).

    - In a primary race that saw 168,000 more Democrats voting than Republicans (further evidence that the "enthusiasm gap" has faded), promising Ky. Attorney General Jack Conway beat tired also-ran Mongiardo. Conway offers a much better shot at capturing this seat in conservative Kentucky, especially when voters are exposed to Paul's nuttiness (though Paul remains the favorite due to Kentucky's electorate).

    - In AR, Lt. Gov. Bill Halter pulled the upset and forced a runoff against Sen. Blanche Lincoln. While it remains to be seen which candidate AR Democrats will eventually choose, Halter clearly has the momentum and is a much stronger general election candidate than Lincoln, who is almost inexorably doomed to lose.

    - In PA, Sestak bean Specter, and once again the stronger general election candidate prevails. Sestak will wipe the floor with Pat Toomey.

    I'll lay it out for you in even simpler terms: The democrats are going to lose a lot of seats come November. Now I am not going to sit here and claim the Republicans are going to take control of both houses of Congress because the current democrat lead is too great.

    But we sure have come a long way since Nov 2006 & Nov 2008 when it looked like Republicans would never win another election ever again, haven't we?
