Yeah, rest in peace if you're able...
There are simply too many "Career Politicians" and when they pass, the sunlight they were blocking for so many years is a welcome renewal.

Old "Magic Bullet" Specter has left us. Hopefully, he repented before he did the dirt nap. Can you imagine the embarrassment trying to tell Jesus Christ a bullet can dance in midair for over a second?

Good riddance scumbag. Anyone who changes party affiliation to remain in power has not character, no morals, and no class. Yes, Lisa Murkowski too.

Whether true or not, men we turn into gods are man made also. Hence...one bullet. Death of a president and it is cleaned up. Evil is evil. You saw his true character the last few years of his life. And his screwing over of people as the judiciary chairman. Not for the people, but the elitists.

Spector lost his soul long ago, he does not have an honorable legacy. This will be the dilema of ObamaHouse.

Yes, we see with liberals that God wouldn't make that kind mistake.

The 2008 election was the practice run for the 'Race Trader" card.
Election 2012 is the SuperBowl for the "Race Traitor" Game. MSM is setting the odds, but they are part of this calculation, the WH and MSM are almost tie for public distrust.

You know, I find some of your comments about Arlen Specter passing appalling. Whether you liked him or agreed with some of his politics, he had at least the ya-yas to take on his own party when he disagreed. There are very few in congress today (if any) that will do this. There was a time when there was sincere debate and negotiation and compromise was struct for the people. You need all remember the signifigance of the two-party system and how it should be operating. If you have one party signing a pledge--well, that should tell you how far we have fallen. It is a cowardly act not to face the opposing party and hold discussion and debate. At the end of the day, you respect each other. You guys don't get that, obviously.

MSM has promised him popularity or an unmanaged mob in the street. The moderates are seeing the empty chair, and the ObamaBots are panicked.
Those flat head casings should be brought up at the debate.
