Sestak for Senate

Joe Sestak officially announced that he’s challenging Arlen Specter. So, we have an admiral vs. a ship jumper.

I know that the primary is almost a year away, but this one’s important.  Arlen Specter’s not the worst Senator out there, but he’s on the wrong side of a number of issues and can’t even be bothered to sugar-coat the fact that he is concerned, first and foremost, with his own political career.

Joe Sestak is solid on all of my hot button issues:

He supports gender equality and women’s rights.
He supports LGBT equality and a repeal of DOMA.
He’s good on education, labor, healthcare and the environment.

In short, he’ll make a better advocate for Pennsylvania in the Senate, and while I’m always nervous in an election regardless of the odds, I’d say that anyone with a pulse has a good chance of beating the everloving snot out of Pat Toomey, who is just barely capable of purchasing Geico insurance.

    I’ll bet they go for Toomey. For spite if nothing else.

    I’m sorry, there was an offer?
