2. Better Specter than Toomey.
If this were a case of a clear-cut win for Democrats if Toomey was the GOP nominee, then I would be rooting for him. But it's not. If that asshole Santorum could win--albeit pretty narrowly--then Toomey could as well.

4. Santorum won in 1994
a year when a dead dog could win if it had an R painted on its back. Those times are over.

5. What about 2000?
Do you think that's different because he was already in office? I don't know. I'm just wary of Toomey potentially winning. If I keep a level head, the odds are probably against it and it might be a risk worth taking.

6. The Dems nominated a weak, underfunded candidate
in Ron Clink, and it was still a fairly close race. Santorum also has something that Toomey doesn't have - charm. I hate to say it, but that guy can say the most horrific things with a smile that wins a lot of people over.

3. You should hear the Toomey ads.
They make "liberal" sound like "gay".

7. Specter is better
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 06:51 PM by liskddksil
After thinking it over, I hope Specter wins. If Toomey wins then his suporters will all come out on election day, which is good for Bush. Having Specter as the nominee may anger some Toomey supporters enough to stay home. Not to mention some moderates might vote for Specter, but also vote for Kerry.
