I'll Have Some Toast, on Jewish Rye
Jeeze, Arlen Specter, has it occurred to you that hanging around the Senate since 1980 as a Republican doesn't automatically make you a decent Democrat, especially when you admittedly switched parties out of your own selfish political interests?
First you say you definitely had no plans to be "a loyal Democrat."
Then you say you are concerned about being the only Jew in the Senate, and that the Minnesota courts should do the right thing and seat Norm Coleman in his so-called rightful place in the Senate so there can be two Jews.
Never mind that duly elected Sen. Al Franken also is a Jew, can you possibly be stupid enough to publicly root for the losing Republican?
Maybe now that the Democrats have totally stripped you of your seniority and have let you know that you are on a par with any freshman Democratic Senator, you'll shut the fuck up and start to toe the party line.
And let's make it clear, as long you're still acting like a crusty old fart Republican, do not assume anyone will support you in the next Democratic primary.
Pennsylvania voted people like you OUT in the last election, and they don't need to see the light, you do.
My friend FranIAm met you 20 years ago and found you humble and polite, so I gave you the benefit of the doubt when you switched parties.
But after a few short days, you've been shooting off your arrogant mouth and showing that typical Republican overblown sense of entitlement.
If you don't start acting like a Democrat soon, you should jump back on the GOP's sinking ship and drown with the rest of those despicable rats.
So far, I give your debut as a Democrat an F.
And we all know what F stands for.
