From the Wall Street Journal: Rep. Joe Sestak defeated five-term incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary election Tuesday. Mr. Specter is the third incumbent in as many weeks to lose his re-election bid in an intra-party contest. You wrinkled, old piece of totalitarian shit – good riddance.
