Dear Senator Specter,
Thank you for bringing your pro-choice, pro-union, pro-gay rights, pro-science self over to Team Democrat. Congratulations on being # 60.
Now maybe Norm Coleman will give up being the sore, lawsuit-bringing loser and let Al Franken be seated, since now he's not the dude who'll be blamed by his repug colleagues for 'giving' democrats the magic filibuster-proof majority.
Man I'm bummed I missed the announcement when it was made today, it's what I get for being flattened on my couch by a killer migraine. Traded cold damp weather for hot dry weather and went from pain in my hands to pain in my head.
i'd heard that he's switched before, but i didn't know he's the one who came up with that theory.
it's exciting to me to have, at this point in time with the GOP degenerating even further into a big pile of rabid, secession-talking, glenn beck-watching, michelle bachman-crazy-talking nutjobs, this kind of thing happen. no matter what his motivation, or their outward response, they hate it when folks stand up to them. and i looooooove it.
He mentioned specifically in his announcement that he knows he would have had a very hard time in the Republican primary and that he doesn't want his record decided by the people who vote in Republican primaries.
Personally, the only thing that annoys me more than a Republican is a political opportunist. Bleh.
