I can’t believe all the attention the mainstream news outlets are giving this story! They seem to think this is going to tip the balance of power even more in favor of the Democratic Party. They think this is going to make it impossible for Republicans to filibuster in the Senate. No, this isn’t the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
So the guy has decided he want to officially be a Democrat now. So what! Every Republican knows that Senator Arlen Specter has always been a Democrat wearing the Republican label. Republicans have always known they couldn’t count on him for anything. He always voted with the Democrats. Heck, he voted with the Democrats more than some of the Democrats do!
The guy always was in the wrong party. It’s not going to make one whit of difference.
