Specter: Kemp Died for Republican Sins


The Washington Times reports 79 year-old Arlen Specter, who recently defected to the Democrats after his pollsters told him he had squeezed the lemon dry as a Republican, wasted no time getting comfy in his new party.
Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Democrat, said part of the reason that he left the Republican Party last week was disillusionment with its health-care priorities, and suggested that had the Republicans taken a more moderate track, Jack Kemp may have won his battle with cancer.
I'm not sure that quite ranks in stupidity with blaming George Bush for not signing the Kyoto Protocol but it may well set a new standard for classlessness in Congress. Specter will make a good fit with his new political playmates.
