The Toomsday Clock Ticks Louder


I’m already hearing lefties insist these new numbers from Rasmussen can’t possibly be accurate:

Congressman Joe Sestak’s post-primary bounce appears to over, and he now trails Republican rival Pat Toomey by seven points in the U.S. Senate contest in Pennsylvania. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania shows Toomey with 45% support, while Sestak earns 38%. Five percent (5%) prefer another candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided.

Look, if this whole thing doesn’t work out for Sestak, I’m sure the White House can find him an unpaid job on an advisory committee.
