Republican Tim Burns has conceded the election to Democrat Mark Critz in Pennsylvania's special election in district twelve.
Lord Acton is still right. Power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely. We shouldn't lose sight of the fact that this observation applies not only to the one who has power, but to those for whose benefit that power is exercised (and abused). It is hard not to draw the conclusion that a substantial number of voters in PA-12 have become so addicted to Murtha-style pork that they voted for the Democrat in the hope of keeping those federal chuck wagons rolling in on a regular schedule. Or perhaps the gravy is being airlifted now.
Update: At least Specter is gone.
