    Joe Sestak's voting record is right in line with the rest of the Democrats in the House. There is nothing independent about him. Just because he ran in a primary against a Democrat turned Republican turned Democrat against the party's wishes doesn't make him independent.

    If you don't know much about Toomey, then you haven't compared the two other than looking at the letter after their name... That is Hackdom 101....

    BTW, have you seen Sleestak lately? Time to get the Just For Men bottle out...

    His voting record and rhetoric with very, very few exceptions (almost all rhetorical) are straight party line. Not much independence there.

    I'm not clear on the full story behind his "unsanctioned" primary run either, PA Democratic politics are conniving and cliquish. But I am willing to give him credit for bucking the system until and unless proven otherwise. That's as far as I go with his independence - and even that probably won't last.

    I'll probably vote for him anyway unless a good third party candidate pops up, but I'll hold my nose. Toomey is a Santorum clone. Well, minus the whole dead baby creepiness and plus an actual residence in the State. Still.....ugh. The culture wars just divert attention from the real issues.

    I don't want to compare the two, I don't live there. I was talking about the tie votes. If you think your guy is gearing up for a great big win, you might want to look a little closer at the race.

    Toomey got an "A" from the NRA.

    Sestak got an "F".

    'Nuff said.

    No but it's a typical tatic of a lefty, violence and mayhem and wishing harm on others. Youse people need therapy.
