Sen. Arlen Specter changed his party affiliation, but didn't change his style. He battled and battled, like he always has, until the very end. If Democrats wanted to defeat Republican Senate nominee Patrick Toomey, he argued to voters, they'd need a fighter, one who happened to have spent the last 45 years as a Republican. (Snip) Specter is still what he is, but on Tuesday Pennsylvania's Democratic voters ended one of the most colorful national political careers of the last several decades.
As the political door hits you in the butt as you depart - you will "not" be missed by a vast, vast majority of Americans. This is the first time I've been proud to be an American.
I am a little surprised how much a smile this brings to my face.
I despise the repugnant specter for the political self-serving HACK that he is. I prefer other words for that wretched piece of garbage. Thank you Pennsylvania!
Good-bye, and good riddance.
This could be the start of something big.
