Anyone But Specter

Arlen Specter the new Flavor of the Month on the Sunday talk circuit demonstrated why he’s come back to his ideological home in the Democrat party. On Meet the Press, he said:

“If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.”

Nice. As Moe Lane of Redstate says, Specter desecrated his “friend’s” memory. Glad to have him with the other Democrat exploiters.

Bad news, though. The establishment wins, yet again, either way in Pennsylvania:

A new poll of Pennsylvania voters suggests that the newest Democrat in Congress, Sen. Arlen Specter, would easily beat his old rival, Republican Pat Toomey, in Specter’s battle for re-election next year.

But the Quinnipiac University survey, released Monday, indicates that Specter would have a much tougher re-election fight on his hands if he faces
off in 2010 against former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge.

At this point, though, I don’t care who wins in Pennsylvania as long as it’s not Arlen Specter. I want him consigned to the same fate as Tom Daschle. How to make that happen is another story.
