Someone please take away Mr. Specter's shovel

"If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."
Will Rogers

So, Arlen Specter is beginning to strike me as perhaps not the savviest politician we have ever seen. I've already noted that he's not making a particular effort to woo his new Democratic friends and constituents. This quote (courtesy of Time via TPM) isn't helping:
"There's still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner."
Hmmmmmm. Hasn't anyone told Sen. Specter that, when he switched parties, the process involved more than changing the letter that follows his name?


  1. No, no, no! Give him an additional shovel. Give him a Caterpillar earthmover. Please, pretty please, make sure he goes down in flames in the primary. It is clear that all the man cares about is retaining power (like, ohh, all the other pols in DC, but he's flaunting it). I mean, who would trust him to walk a dog around the block at this point?
