Quick thoughts on Specter

Arlen Specter quit today...the Republican Party that is, & joined the Democrat Party.

This, in case you haven't guessed, is a)no surprise & b)no loss. At 79, he has spent more time becoming a Democrat than most Democrats. Specter is a true RINO in all his shameful gore. Waving bye-bye to the 79 year old is not going to bother anyone.

Why did he do it? When he saw the Republicans wanted someone more in tune with true precepts (small government, low taxes, etc), he heard the death knell for his 'career'. So, he jumped ship.

Thank you Arlen, for saving Republicans the trouble of watching you embarrass yourself in the primary. And, hey, Dems, good luck with that, um, well, uh, 'addition' to your party.
You are welcome to the guy. If your 'luck' holds out, maybe the Republicans can convince Snowe & Collins to jump over to your boat too.

Independents - are you paying attention? The 2 parties are writing a thesis on how to vote & act & govern as an elected official. Read & do not follow those instructions!
