I mean: ARLEN SPECTER SWITCHING PARTIES!
[Words] I have decided to run for re-election in 2010 in the Democratic primary.
Convenient timing, that, as Republicans were planning on using their primary to end his career. More:
My change in party affiliation does not mean that I will be a party-line voter any more for the Democrats that I have been for the Republicans. Unlike Senator Jeffords’ switch which changed party control, I will not be an automatic 60th vote for cloture. For example, my position on Employees Free Choice (Card Check) will not change.
Translation: I’m changing my hat, but I’m still a huge fucking dick. Meh.
