Good Bye, Arlen! And Good Riddance!

Pennsylvania had their primary election today.  Pro-abortion and one-time-RINO Senator Arlen Specter was rejected by the PA Dems for a sixth term as US Senator.  This defeat is seen by many as a slap to Obama, who supported Specter.

Specter enjoyed the dubious distinction of being the only Republican to receive a campaign donation from the now-deceased late-term abortionist George Tiller, a.k.a. Tiller the Killer.  Joe Sestak won the Democrat nomination.  He'll run against Pat Toomey, who defeated Peg Luksik to become the Republican candidate.  Those of decent memory will recall that in 2004's Republican primary, Toomey and Specter faced off.  Toomey would have won that primary, had he not been thrown under the bus by then-Senator Rick Santorum and President Bush in favor of Specter.

Specter's defeat was long overdue, but now the air in the Senate hallways will be just a tad bit fresher.
