Weekend open thread

Share whatever's on your mind this weekend.
I watched Joe Sestak and Arlen Specter on CNN this morning. Sestak did well except when he refused to say whether he would endorse Specter if Specter won the U.S. Senate primary (he refused to speculate about something he said would never happen). Specter answered the same question unambiguously, saying of course he would endorse the Democrat to keep Pat Toomey from winning. It's a joke for Specter to present himself as more of a Democratic team player, but in this case Sestak played right into Specter's talking point.
Speaking of Pennsylvania, the special election to fill John Murtha's old seat (PA-12) looks too close to call. The special election in Hawaii's first district unfortunately looks like it will go to the Republican, Charles Djou.
