Man Of The Hour!

Pennsylvania Senator, Arlen Specter, announced today that he is switching to the Democratic Party!  Always one of the more pragmatic (and less dogmatic) Republicans, Senator Specter broke from his party of 29 years after concluding that the Republican party had just moved too far to the right.  He saw the handwriting on the wall, after watching 200,000 Pennsylvanian Republicans cross over to the Democratic Party.

The good senator stated:  “I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans.”

If the Al Franken debacle is ever rightfully resolved in Minnesota, this would give the Democrats 60 votes in the Senate, and would provide the Democrats with the means to break any Republican filibuster.

The move has left the Senate Republicans in a state of shock.   Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, called an emergency meeting of party leaders to try to sort things out, and to attempt to put the best possible face on the matter.

President Obama was informed of the momentous news and reportedly called Senator Specter to say:  “You have my full support,” and we are “thrilled to have you.”
