Where in the US does Arlen Spector
hail from? His accent is weird....almost sounds southern.
Funny, I had exactly the same reaction. Pennsylvania, I said to myself. Oh, lordy, Andrea says in his speech the President tried to tie Iraq to 9/11.
Penn I think.
He is the Senator of PA
But I think he is orginally (born) from NY though
Nope .. I was totally wrong about Specter
He's from Wichita, Kansas
Senator Arlen Specter
Born in Wichita, Kansas, Specter studied at universities before and after serving in the United States Air Force from 1951 to 1953. He passed the Pennsylvania Bar in 1956. He soon became a prominent lawyer in Philadelphia, eventually becoming District Attorney. He worked with the Warren Commission investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy. As a chief counsel for the commission he authored the controversial "magic bullet theory". In 1980, Specter became the Republican candidate for Senate when Republican incumbent Richard Schweiker announced his retirement. He had previously run for the Senate in 1976, but was defeated by John Heinz in the Republican primary.
At this time the chemotherapy has altered his voice a bit.
He stated that mid July will be his last chemo treatment.
While he has been more trouble than help, I wish him good health.
Would you believ he's from the same tiny, Kansan dustbowl truckstop as Bob Dole?
Would you believe that the name of this tiny Kansan town is actually, "Liberal." (yes, he was born in the "big city": Wichita.)
