RIP Arlen.

You were a RINO, but at least you helped usher in Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. So thanks for that.

You beat me by 61 seconds.

Oh, and you spelled his name right.

And you had a link.

Doesn’t change anything — the Democrats were counting on his vote anyway.

The Senate will spend a few days eulogizing Mr. Specter. Prayers for his family. Losing a loved one is tough.

So, will the dems be scheduling a “Specter-Palooza” event to exploit his death just in time for the election?

AS was about 80. Didn’t he have a return bout with cancer? He was in remission for a few years prior. RIP.
Should have been retired a long time ago.

I suppose that he now knows the truth about his Single Bullet Theory.

His retirement sure didn’t last long.

Arlen, we will remember the stimulus. We will remember the numerous betrayals. We will remember your being against Robert Bork, so that other worthless moderate and liberal republicans could hide behind your filthy skirt. We will remember your silly “not proven” standard in the Clinton impeachment trial. We will forget you but will remember these things as a warning to never again elect anyone like you who claims to be a republican.

Can’t speak ill of the departed, so I’ll offer the fine words of wisdom bespoken by my wonderfully whitty yet sarcastic Irish ancestors:

“May you enjoy your thirty minutes in heaven before the devil knows that you’re dead”.

You were a RINO, but at least you helped usher in Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. So thanks for that.

My sentiments exactly. I first became aware of Specter because of his masterful and very effective defense of Thomas.

So now the snarlin’ one can fall in the same platoon with fellow Pennsylvania potlickers Murtha and Paterno.
