10:15 AM: Welcome to the Liveblog of Benedict Arnold: a/k/a Arlen Specter. I’m sure David Gregory will ask him tough questions — like “how hard was it to beat cancer?” The cancer question is a toughie.
10:20 AM: Specter wants a minority to add diversity to the Court. He does not want a politician to be appointed. An academic. A woman. An African-American. An Hispanic. Good thing Specter left the G.O.P. What an asshole.
10:22 AM: “Empathy.” Trying to muster some up for Republicans. Nope. Ain’t happening here.
10:25 AM: He thought Robert Borque was not in the mainstream of legal jurisprudence. He’s right. Borque was a flaming, liberal, commie.
10:26 AM: Specter mentions the “F” word. Filibuster. Fear not Glen Beck Ball Suckers! He’s like fucking Jimmy Stewart.
10:27 AM: Gregory is confronting Specter about his switch. Basically, he calls him out as a rat nad then gives him cheese. Although Specter’s answer is very reasonable, I care not to listen to reason. He’s also spun the answer into something about medical research and his website.
10:30 AM: Gregory asks him what “inducements” Specter got for switching sides. He presses him that maintaining his “seniority” is an inducement. Specter remarks he earned it. He’s right. The guy is old as dusty dirt.
10:32 AM: Specter Core Beliefs: Freedom. A woman’s right to choose. Something he wrote with Republicans. Specter’s a man who fights for the “little guy.” He is pro-midget.
10:33 AM: Specter did say he would not be a “loyal Democrat.” He repeated that three times. He is a disloyal Republican. That’s different. It depends on what the definition of “is,” is.
10:36 AM: The future of the Republican Party: He hopes for a strong two party system. He wants it to be nationalist. He mentions the “Club for Growth.” I think that is for erectile dysfunction. A problem the G.O.P. actually has. Just kidding, The Club For Growth, aside from helping those with flaccid peckers, wreaks havoc in the Republican Party by pushing out others who are proven winners. Like, Arlen Specter.
Ok. off to spell check it now. My thoughts: Specter is a rat scumbag who will help the Democratic party because he is incredbly reasonble. The Republicans, and their leader du jour, Michael Steele, were smart to rape him with a broomstick and shank him. Fortunately, they have Tom Ridge to save them. Not the schmuck Steele propped up.
