Some Jujitsu

Pat Toomey, the conservative Republican senate candidate in Pennsylvania, has written an op-ed saying he would vote for Sonia Sotomayor. What does this tell us? Probably that since he's got the GOP nomination locked up Toomey is moving to look more like a moderate, and figures the few people he upsets in wingnuttia is offset by people in the middle he might woo from Specter/Sestak. It also shows us that despite all the hullabaloo last year about Pennsylvania, that its enough in the blue state world that a conservative Republican knows he's got to know when to fold 'em.
