Specter rips off mask, reveals himself as a Democrat.
Yeah, like we didn’t know. It’s like Arlen Specter pulling off his Arlen Specter mask.
Good. For too long, the Republican Party has tried to eek out victories with the help of unreliable liberals like Specter, thereby avoiding the hard work of transforming itself into a party of ideas. It’s fine to have a big tent, but it doesn’t have to be a circus tent with the chimps in charge of the popcorn concession. Toodle-oo, Arlen, it’s been real; we will (yawn) follow your future career with considerable interest.
Update: Much good pistol-whipping and linking from Stacy McCain.
