      When I saw the results from this race, I was shocked - shocked!  I live in neighboring PA-07 where most were predicting a Sestak win.  Not one pundit was predicting a Patrick Murphy win.  Fitzpatrick was really good at pretending to be a moderate, and let me say that Bucks county is no liberal paradise.  Fitzpatrick had favorables and high reelect numbers, and Murphy still beat him.  Murphy made this race about Iraq, and he won.  I am sure that Murphy would have lost without his volunteers.  Congrats to you, I think this was by far the biggest upset of the night.  When Fitzpatrick was elected in 2004 against Schrader, I thought he would have had the seat for life.
