Specter to go blue

Speaking of DC turncoats, we hear Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) is about to become Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) today. Not that this will involve a meaningful shift in the already-decisive Senate Democratic majority, but at least now I can go to parties and not hear any grumbling about “that RINO* Specter.”

  1. Thanks for posting my photo.

    As a former DINO (Dem In Name Only), I have always observed that with Arlen, it’s always all about what’s best for him. Considering the thumping Arlen took in the recent Rasmussen poll against Toomey. I am somewhat surprised it took him this long to switch sides. The voters in PA will see this as sheer opportunism come 2010. Which will be a good thing for Pa and the nation.
