I’ve been watching the Arlen Spector issue bloom over the last couple of days. I hope this traitorous so-and-so gets what he so justly deserves. If reports are correct, he should just change his party do Democrat and be done with the GOP.
WorldNet Daily has a good roundup to this point, along with some new stuff. First para:
In two newspaper interviews before the election, Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter promised to block pro-life and “extremist” judges appointed by President Bush, apparently contradicting claims he is making now amid fierce opposition to his becoming chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
It gets better in a hurry:
The [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette] editorial then stated: “Before the [Pittsburgh]Post-Gazette editorial board, he promised that no extremists would be approved for the bench.”
All I can say is that Bush supported Spector rather than Rick Santorum. The American Conservative Union rates Santorum an 87 out of 100; Spector garnered 43 out of 100. I hope he’s happy with that decision.
