Political whore … er … I mean opportunist Arlen Specter delivers a whine fest on his way out of the Senate.
Tea Parties … whaa whaa … partisanship … whaa whaa … loss of civility … whaa whaa … compromise … whaa whaa whaaaaaaaaaaaa…
Specter bolted the Republican party because he knew he was going to get his a** handed to him in the primary. How dare the unwashed masses challenge His Highness. Then he jumps to the Dems and gets a challenger there. How dare the Dems not welcome the little rat with open arms.
Specter is probably the most smug and insufferable member of the Senate, and that is quite a distinction. (Lisa Murkowski is a close second.) Good riddance to him.
Here is a video of Specter’s farewell speech.
Here is a video of me celebrating his departure.
