But Specter Is OUR Pompous, Shameless, Opportunistic Hack!

Noted lunatic imbecile Dan Riehl says something stupid -- no surprise there -- though only after actually getting something right, hard as that may be to believe.


Funny that Arlen Specter would come out for a robust public health care insurance option on the very same site that once headlined his opposition to that very thing as recently as May.

Fast forward to today at the Huffington Post: Arlen Specter: Supporting a Robust Public Option

Arlen Specter, T (for traitor) was previously highlighted by the Lefty blogs as the highest paid shill for corporate America in his strong opposition to a public option for health care reform. Perhaps he was, once. I guess he needs union money, now....

So much for principle and judgment. What a desperate, pathetic figure Specter cuts today. He's just a shell of a man who doesn't want to let go of his cherished Senate office no matter what, even after all these years.

All true! Arlen Specter is a hack and a half, an opportunist whose most attractive quality is that his shamelessness tends to overshadow his pomposity. Never liked Arlen Specter, never will. We're with ya, Dan! Until this bit:
