Specter switches to Dems; 60-vote majority is near
You know, we've gently chastened Mrs. MediaBlog when she has referred to Colin Powell as a coward. She can call Arlen Specter whatever she likes.
Arlen was going to lose the primary. It's as simple as that. Rather than retire beforehand to spare himself the embarrassment, he decided to turn his coat and run as a Democrat.
The worst part, of course, is that he didn't even have to do that. He could have followed the Lieberman path which is a hell of a lot more honorable and decent. Of course, honor and decency are probably not the most important values to a baby-killer-lover like Arlen.
Screw you, Arlen.
