J. K. Rowling writes fiction, but Arlen Specter is giving her a run for her money! Listen to this...
"As the Republican Party has moved farther and farther to the right, I have found myself increasingly at odds with the Republican philosophy and more in line with the philosophy of the Democratic Party." -Arlen Specter
Let's examine this with just the tiniest bit of a critical eye! The Republican party of George Bush that Specter was happy to be in and accept help from, has shifted right to be the party of...John McCain??? I don't think so!
McCain is a moderate, not a conservative. If anything, the Republican party, as a whole, has been shifting to the middle, not the right.
If this fairy tale that Specter is telling is in hopes of keeping his fanny in his Senate seat, I suspect that Arlen Specter is not going to live happily ever after!
