    Benedict Arlen is going down. He's obviously burned his bridge with Republicans by virtue of his betrayal. But nobody likes a sniveling turncoat who's only out to save his own wrinkly old ass. Independents won't like that. It lacks any semblance of integrity. He's been running against Democrats for all these years, and his manners leave so much to be desired that I can't imagine he hasn't offended them badly in campaign after campaign.

    The wages of sin, I suppose, in this case will be political death. Couldn't happen to a smarmier guy if you ask me. :eusa_whistle:

    Arlen Sphincter is a horse's ass of the first order. He was losing in the GOP primary and Pres Bush came and helped his campaign (wasn't this against Toomey? Cant recall). Sphincter won and then opposed Bush's policies, finally turning Democrat. He had cut a deal to retain his chairmanships. After he switched the Dums decided they weren't bound by that deal and stiffed him. What a sap. He deserves to lose. And Toomey deserves richly to win.

    He seems to have a significant lead over Sestak. Of course, in politics I dont think that matters.

    Since Ive been trying to knock Sestak out of Congress the last few years, I can say he would be a horrible choice. He has been a horrible representative and everything Ive seen shows that he has a temper and is unpleasant to people.

    Does PA allow for dual candidacy? Some states don't.
