So an ex-senator walks into a comedy club . . .
That's not the setup to a joke - it's what happened Tuesday night when Arlen Specter took the stage at the Helium Comedy Club's open-mike night in Center City.
"I've been in comedy now for 30 years," the former senator explained.
Taking a try at stand-up was a natural step after spending so many years in the "sit-down comedy" of Congress - and, Specter noted, it was considerably less expensive.
While some of his jokes are unprintable in a family newspaper - don't ask about the paraplegic who wanted to date the battered woman - Specter spent much of his three minutes on stage ribbing prominent local and national politicians.

I know I should be more magnanimous to my fellow man, but this guy gets my blood boiling and I am so glad he is "gone" from the political stage.
But will someone tell him..
The jokes on us, we are payin' his freakin' his pension.
I am gonna quit now before I get profane and get booted...

There’s just nothing about Arlen Specter that I find funny. I thought it was odd how he was able to worm his way onto Rush Limbaugh’s show a few times. He’s the poster boy for RINO capitulation.

So a guy asks me: "Hey Arlen, weren't you a Republican?"
... and I tell him: "I'd cite Scots law to render a verdict of not proven".

I checked Scottish Law and he is certainly culpable under the Stupidity Code!

Arlen Spector is a ghoulish creature.

Not anymore. And the most of the people slamming Rick for that are in bed with a candidate who liked Dede Scozzafava. Can you say glass house?
