The Pennsylvania contest is one of four competitive Senate primaries Tuesday. Incumbents and establishment favorites have already seen casualties in Utah, Florida and West Virginia.
In Pennsylvania, Rep. Joe Sestak is in a statistical tie with Sen. Arlen Specter heading into Tuesday's primary that will decide the Democratic senate nominee, with Sestak leading 42 percent to 41 percent with 16 percent undecided. Specter was a Republican for years and switched parties in April of 2009 after realizing he would be defeated and lose his seat to his opponent. Spector may or may not survive the Democratic primary, but his fate will likely be sealed in the November elections.
In Kentucky, reflecting the GOP drift to the right, Secretary of State Trey Grayson has faded amid a surge for Tea Party favorite Rand Paul, an ophthalmologist and son of libertarian Rep. Ron Paul (R- Texas). There's also a battle for the Democratic nomination, this one between Attorney General Jack Conway and Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo, a physician.

This brave had two feathers in his headdress. He replied, "Me have two women. Two women, two feathers."
Still not convinced the feathers indicated the number of sexual partners involved, she decided to interview the Chief. The Chief had a headdress full of feathers, which, needless to say, amused the lady. She asked the Chief, "Why do you have so many feathers in your headdress?"

Horrified, she stated, "You ought to be hung." The Chief said, "You damn right, me hung, big like buffalo, long like snake." She cried, "You don't have to be so hostile." The Chief replied, "Hoss-style, dog-style, wolf-style, any style...me sleep with 'em all." With tears in her eyes, she cried, "Oh dear." The Chief said, "No deer. Ass too high, run too fast."
