So now he's our weasel

-- quote from Steve J via Twitter.

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter will switch from the Republican't to the Democratic Party. From his statement:

Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the Republican Party has moved far to the right. Last year, more than 200,000 Republicans in Pennsylvania changed their registration to become Democrats. I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans.

It has become clear to me that the stimulus vote caused a schism which makes our differences irreconcilable. On this state of the record, I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate. I have not represented the Republican Party. I have represented the people of Pennsylvania.

I have decided to run for reelection in 2010 in the Democratic primary.

Bonus: "No Senator, no matter how loyal he is to his party, should put party loyalty above his duty to the state and nation."

Bonus 2: GOP moderates put the blame squarely on rightwingnut dittomonkeys --

Two leading Republican moderates say Sen. Arlen Specter's decision to become a Democrat highlights the hostility moderates feel from an increasingly conservative GOP. “You haven't certainly heard warm encouraging words about how [the GOP] views moderates,” said Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe. Snowe said the party's message has been, “Either you're with us or you’re against us.” Her frustration was shared by Sen. Lindsay Graham, who slammed right-wing interest groups for pushing moderates out of the party.

Bonus 3: a hysterical response from rethug Sen. John Cornyn of Texas --

“Senator Specter’s decision today represents the height of political self-preservation. While this presents a short-term disappointment, voters next year will have a clear choice to cast their ballots for a potentially unbridled Democrat super-majority versus the system of checks-and-balances that Americans deserve.”


Right. Well, maybe you republitards can just gerrymander some states to fix the votes again... oh wait, you can't anymore. Awwwwwwz. Fuck you and your morally bankrupt party of powermad troglodytes. And you can blame yourselves.

RNC's Steele on CNN phone call whined that Specter dissed him..didn't call him first....and warned that Specter doesn't have dem cred...doesn't know Specter WAS a Dem in days of yore.

Rove leaked Specter's epiphany inspired divorce from flat earth knuckle draggers GOP prior to Specter's presser...Rove dissed RNC too, bwa ha ha.

The GOP has lost their ability to have 'Murkins vote against their own interest.

Gingrich today: he's digging up his ex wife to ask her where the friggin' plunger is so he can rescue his party from his tub's drain.

Limbaugh's popping pills grasping his man boobs coronary spasms....

Ari Fleisher struggled to hold back bile and tears due to his atomic neon red glowing doughy pant load whilst on FOX discussing Specter returning to Dem party.


In the prophetic words of Porky Pig: "That's all, folks."

psst:

That giant explosion which almost knocked our planet off orbit:

the irrelevant parasite being baby sat in think tank Man on Dog Santorum's imploding sphincter.

He's on a major freak out screaming that Specter will allow the Dem caucus powers the he and his party used and abused that he thinks no one remembers they abused endlessly.... lol.

We the People await with bated breath...for DeLay's implosion explosion knock us to another galaxy...or

That ear shattering sucking sound...Newt found his plunger.
