Arlen Specter Interrupts Sestak During Forum; Moderator Asks Specter to Leave Stage - Video
Talking Points Memo TV Video via Freedom's Lighthouse Blog ^ | February 1, 2010 | Talking Points Memo TV Video via Brian

Posted on 02/01/2010 11:39:23 AM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Sen. Arlen Specter interrupting his Democrat rival Joe Sestak as Sestak was delivering his closing remarks before a Progressive Forum.

The two were to have separate Q & A sessions before the group. Specter looked like he did not realize Sestak was even speaking when he climbed onstage during Sestak's remarks. Sestak paused, and greeted the Senator. The moderator got up and asked Specter to leave the state until Sestak was done! Sestak seemed embarrassed for Specter, and tried to lighten the mood with some humor. . . . (VIDEO)

Seemed a lot like a “senior moment” on the part of Specter.

Benedict Snarlen is done for.... he made his bed with the Dems and now they don’t want a traitor either. The old geezer is pushing 80 anyway.... retirement is his promotion!

Senator Specter is about to meet Revelations 3:15-17:

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

Sestek was addressing progressives??

Time for a commie purge. Anyone who associates themselves with progressives (Marxist light) is a threat to our liberty and needs to be removed.

As for Specter......his time is short also.
Nothing ewlse in the news story matters beyond those two observations.

I liked this from the comments:

"Specter checking his watch"

He was checking to see if it was time to change parties again.

the guy is absolutely whacked. He needs to retire and ride his last days out in a nursing home for the emotionally and mentally challenged. He was done along time ago. Why he still has a job is beyond me.

The man rose to a position of power and influence. He was in a position where he could have been a driving force for a lot of good...

...and he squandered it. Pathetic.

Well this is just plain ol’ Spector arrogance...

coupled with...his age...and chemotherapy sometimes has a side affect called “chemo brain”...affects ones thinking which may not show until well past the treatments.

Spector was asked to leave the State?

I wish!

Last night while flipping through the channels, I came across the cable channel that carries PA state stuff from Harrisburg and the debate had just ended, so I didn't see any of it. The young female moderator and two grizzled male Philly reporters were raving about how Specter had mopped the floor with Sestak, Specter was so entertaining and humorous like a stand-up comedian working the room, Specter really connected with the audience, etc., Sestak, hasn't a prayer and neither does Toomey. Gag me with a spoon.

Specter isn’t the only ancient Senator, been in D.C. way too long, who’s fighting for his political life and lashing out in ugly ways. Here in AZ, we have McCain who has no qualms whatsoever in trying to drag his main opponent, J.D. Hayworth, through all the dirt and slime he can invent.

These codgers, Thurmond, Byrd, Kennedy, Spectre (pun intended) are all propped up by their staff. They slough enough money to the satte they can only be defeated by death, but Spectre is on his way out now. He should have never been elected after his outstanding work for the Warren Commission.
