Senator Arlen Specter Dumps the GOP

Holy Crap! Senator Arlen Specter dumps the GOP for the Democratic party:

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter shocked the political world Tuesday by jumping from the GOP to the Democratic Party – likely handing President Obama an EZ-Pass to drive his agenda on Capitol Hill.

The sudden move, coming as the veteran lawmaker already faces a fierce 2010 primary challenge from the right in the Keystone State, all but gives Democrats and Obama a roadblock-free Senate, putting them on the cusp of a 60-vote majority.

"I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans," Specter announced on his campaign Web site.

I really thought he would become an independent...

[update] Via William K. Wolfrum, The batshit loopy GOP base lays its cards on the table:

From Twitter, Erick Erickson of Red State - which is truly the base of the GOP these days - had this to say about Arlen Specter’s move to the Democratic Party:

Guess now that Larry Craig is gone & Specter realized there was no teabagging at the #teaparty, he had to go Dem for Frank to fondle him.

Today’s conservatives - if someone upsets you, call them gay.
Truly dealing from the bottom of the deck on a sinking ship of fools...

Dude, I don't buy this shit for a second. Not a fucking one. Judaspectariat anyone.

He tells us, the fuck tells us that he isn't going to vote party line with us (which no senator ever should), but that he does want our money so that he can then not support us.

Double Agent.
Reverse Lieberman.


he read the writing on the wall and decided the only way he could still be a polic was to switch sides.


So what the DLC, DNCC, whatever their abbreviations, are they just gonna help get this guy elected when he clearly is not a democrat, and obsofuckinglutely not a LIBERAL.

We need liberals not republicrats.

Okay: I'm done. Calm passing over.

Is Eric the fucking not a viking seriously trying to tie judaspectariat trojan horse with the Dems now for gayness.

Because Judaspectariat is now gay cause he's a Dem? and leaving Craig wide-stance.

I think Eric the not a viking is a closet male ass fister, and I challenge him to disprove that theory by one minute from now less he want s me to always call him that.

Those are some seriously good rants there... I like that - MSOC and Rude Pundit are experts at that. Though I do agree with Wolfrum in that we should stay away from using gay references as slur, I can also see throwing it back in their homophobic faces when the hypocrisy hits the internet.

Duly noted. I had not realized I had done that, but to be sure, I find nothing wrong with ass-fisting.

Never done it, but really, whats wrong with it?

To me nada, to them, yeah, a "hole" lot.

I meant this though actually, not in a sexual manner. I clearly was making a reference to getting fisted in the ass as in this guy is fucking us and I mean in the it don't feel so good kinda way.

Is the line drawn, or does this not make sense? Gay bashing wouldv'e been something else. My reference (at least the intent) was to demonstrate that this guy is "screwing us" in the long run, no homophobia.

Though I agree insults are just mean regardless.

Thanks for keeping it "straight" on the up and up.

Love to all!

Hey go check out Crooks and liars.

See the post on Erickson from red state, and then tell me this guy isn't fucking us in the ass with a bunch of bullshit.

I don't mean that in a gay way I mean it like his lies are auditory rapage.

Goat fucking child molester. What do you say about someone that uses these fallaciously absurd remarks to describe a moderate?

He really is trying to get one over on us, I just don't say, getting one over on us, I say it's fucking ass fisting without consent.

Okay. I'm done. Whew.
