Only ‘act of god’ will slow down Sestak

Only an “act of God” could stop Rep. Joe Sestak (R-Pa.) from challening Arlen Specter in the Senate Democratic primary, the Congressman said yesterday.

Sestak made the remarks while speaking to a Democratic State Committeeman, and Pa2010.com overheard.

“That sounds blasphemous,” he said, not denying that he said it–and has said it before.

But he reiterated to pa2010.com that the final decision rests with his family–not the Lord Almighty.

“I want us to be in this together,” he said.

What about an act of Ed Rendell? Or Barack Obama?
