Good Job Republicans

A source involved in the talks confirms that Senator Arlen Specter will switch to the Democratic Party, a dramatic move putting the Democrats within reach of two votes in the Seante.

The move stands to put the White House's agenda on a fast-track, and to renew hopes among organized labor for the Employee Free Choice Act.

Vice President Joe Biden was, I'm told, deeply involved in the talks with Specter.

The move also raises the stakes for the resolution of the Minnesota Senate race, and may tempt Republicans to drag that fight on further.

You mean the guy who's a poster child of congressional waste and incompetence wants to become a democrat? Stop the presses.


I wouldn't be surprised if he's still trying to investigate spygate.

just a reminder though that a moderate republican is the exact same thing as a blue dog democrat and instead of watering down legislation to appease the other party, obama will have to do it within his own.

keep in mind that democratic senators are all basically corporate shills

keep in mind that the american senate is an archaic vestigial limb of an american government long gone and doesn't serve a purpose anymore the House couldn't do on its own.

Yeah I know, but I would be pissed off. I guess it's one thing to become an independent, but this would feel like a betrayal to me. Not that I would have ever voted for him in the first place.

I would think that if this was the reason, he would have resigned his seat and stopped associating with the other crooks and criminals in the senate...

Any democrat that votes for him in his next election will get exactly what they deserve a wishy washy flip flopper.
