Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform.
The fact that the people of Pennsylvania ever had as their Senator somebody this dumb, I mean. What the hell did Specter expect, after all? The man was a turncoat; he broke with the GOP purely for personal advancement, and everybody knew it. When people like that ‘join’ your side, you use them – and use them up. It’s not like doing so will come back to haunt you, after all.
As you can tell, I have precisely zero sympathy for people like Mister Specter. Turncoats give sincere converts a bad name, you understand…
