Specter Switches

Other than that nasty business with Anita Hill, Sen. Arlen Specter has always been one of the howler's favoritest Republican. Just a few days ago in The New York Review of Books, Specter spelled out what he hopes to accomplish in the Senate; and folks, it's music to a progressive's ears.

It's about the rule of law and "rolling back [the] presidential power grab" that seems to be all the rage of late; and yes, this would include any power grab from Precious One.

In reporting, Washington Post describes how the senator told the truth straight up -- free of spin; after centrists left the Republican party in droves in '08, he simply can't win in Pennsylvania. It also looks like good ol' Joe played an instrumental role in the switch.
[Senate Majority Leader Reid credited Vice President Biden for playing an important behind-the-scenes role in softening Specter's resistance. Biden and Specter are old friends and Senate colleagues, and Biden successfully courted Specter over a period of weeks to support the stimulus bill.
Read it and weep, Republican wingnuts; soon (if not already) ya'll have Rush, Beck, Ingraham, Savage and Hannity as the swine face of your party.

Bwah, ha, ha, ha, ha.
