The problem with Arlen Specter
I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate.
This is also pretty funny.
Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the Republican Party has moved far to the right.
Does anyone believe that the party has moved further to the right since Ronald Reagan?
Specter apparently also switched without a promise that he would get any chairmanship of any committees. Given that his switch likely gives the Democrats a filibuster proof Senate, one would think that he had gotten a better deal.
