HA-HA, RINO is going to screw GOP.

Postby white_rabbit » Sun Mar 08, 2009 9:53 am

Rumors floating around the internet tubes is that Republican Senator Arlen Specter is preparing to flip parties to the Democratic side of the aisle, mostly because the party of the circular firing squad is planning on putting up a primary challenge against Specter because he voted for the Obama stimulus bill. Specter was a member of the Democratic party but switched the mid '60's to the GOP. I'm betting he will change party affiliation shortly after Senator-elect Al Franken is seated, giving the Democratic Senators a super-majority.

He should prove his worth to the Democratic Party by switching now, thereby being useful when the remaining GOP Senators try to block the eventual seating of Franken.

I agree. I hope he brings Senators Collins and Snowe along with him. Make it official that there are no longer any moderates in the Republican party.

Well, that was a nice idea. Unfortunately, Specter went the opposite way.

He's now opposing EFCA, which says he's decided to fight it out and try to win the GOP primary. Specter was the only GOP senator who had previously supported EFCA, so this is a bit disappointing.

For the record, the rumors floating around the internet tubes were right, but he should of flipped before EFCA.

One down, two more to go with Collins and Snowe.

I'm kinda fond on the suggestion floated on Kos today: Dems should hold off on the organizational vote (thereby letting Specter keep his committee seats on the GOP's tab) until Franken is seated.
