    This guy is a total snake. The White House gave Arlen Specter their endorsement over a solid conservative(and Olympic decathalon gold medal winner)Congressman Pat Toomey in the primary to pave his way. And the first thing this POS talks about 5 minutes after getting his job back is to talk about abortion.How about "Thank you, President Bush, and I'll be open-minded on your judicial nominess if they're qualified." Now, Toomey may have lost. With Chafee's expected defection it would still be 53-47 advantage. The only good thing is this firestorm may chasten Specter to understand that no one is taking any of this weak-kneed crap after last Tuesday. All this from a man who yammered on about [i]Scottish law [/i]during the Clinton impeachment, which what ever your position was utterly bizarre.

    They believed-and probably correctly-that Toomey had an uphill fight, while Specter, chock full of seniority and moderate, would win more easily.

    Yeah, you gotta keep in mind PA's a blue state. If you want to be a republican senator here, you better not show it or Philthadelphians will make sure they drown out all the votes of decent-minded folks in the so-called T (I prefer to call it, the entire rest of the state that doesn't include them, Pittsburgh, or Erie) through their various acts of trickery. Some day I'm told, Phillthy hopes get more than 100% voter turnout :unsure:
