Our Readers Who Comment do not agree on what Tuesday night's election results mean. Some think it's all about throwing out incumbents like Sen. Arlen Specter (D-formerly-R-Pa.), but several argue that structure is a media-driven invention. Some think it's a repudiation of President Obama. Some say Rand Paul's win in Kentucky's Republican Senate primary means the Tea Party is off and running. But there is little rejoicing. As Dan Balz and Chris Cillizza write, "The Kentucky race underscored the energy of anti-government conservatives who intend to shake up the capital. But the results in Pennsylvania's special House election [where Democrats held a vacant seat] will raise questions about whether Republicans will be able to take control of the House in November, as many of their leaders have predicted." Kentucky - Pennsylvania - Republican - Democratic - Arlen Specter
