Top Tens (updated)

Showing a keen understanding of the media’s love for end-of-year lists, Senator Arlen Specter’s campaign has compiled a tally of challenger Joe Sestak’s top ten 2009 “blunders.”

Making the cut:

–Sestak claiming all military officials are Democrats, whether or not they know it

–The congressman’s months-long flirtation with a formal campaign announcement

–127 missed votes

The Sestak campaign, in turn, has put together a list of the “ten worst votes Arlen Specter ever cast.”


–Supporting “many of the most reactionary judges the Republican Party could find, including voting for Justices Thomas and Alito”

–Voting to authorize the invasion of Iraq

–Opposing an effort to extend the federal assault weapons ban
