It's all about Specter, to Specter. Just go already.

"I never count any chickens before they hatch," Specter, 74, of Pennsylvania, said
Sounds like code for "I'm pro-abortion".

Specter is the litmus paper of the GOP credibility.
He MUST go.

"I never count any chickens before they hatch . . . "
Of course not. Nor do you count children before they are born.
God help any congresscritter who puts Specter in the judiciary committee. Their seats will be forfeit in 2006 and 2008.

"I think he has earned it," Lott said. "I'm a pretty conservative guy. But I'm also a pragmatist and I think it would be a mistake for him not to be chairman."
Is that the smell of greased palms and scratched backs wafting out of that room?

(Just my opinion, of course. Your mileage may vary. You have the right to be wrong.)

Where's that list of phone numbers again? We need to reinforce the message to these hard-headed senators. I want Lott's number!
Lott resigned for the good of the party over some innocuous remark. Spector obviously doesn't care about anyone else. Why can't Spector resigned the chairmanship for the good of the party.
This may be nothing more than putting on a good face. Let's hope so!
I will guarantee the Pubbies, if they put this guy in as chair, they will come to regret it.

Trent lott should sit down and shut up. Lott was a weakling who correct was fired from the majority position.
Lott is operating as a minority party leader. This is not the old country club senate, this is a 9/11 senate vs the remaining fools with a 9/10 menality.
Specter is the wrong senator, for the wrong job, at the wrong time.
What all of you need to do is contact your senators and ask them to change the senate rules so that the democrats cannot filibuster judicial nominees. I contacted my two senators and Frist. If Spector is head of the committee, that would be bad, but I think the democrats main weapon is the filibusters. They intend to use that weapon every chance they get. If the rules are changed and Spector blocks any nominee, that would take a lot of nerve on his part and make a lot of Republicans who supported him look very bad.
