Cynical politicians of the week - Arlen Specter AND Dinghy Harry

The once-Distinguished Senator from Pennsylvania did a double this week. He announced he was switching from Republican to Democrat. Why? Because he could get reelected as a Democrat. That's what he said. And: Specter: GOP priorities contributed to Kemp death - Washington Times: Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Democrat, said part of the reason he left the Republican Party last week was disillusionment with its healthcare priorities, and suggested that had the Republicans taken a more moderate track, Jack Kemp may have won his battle with cancer. Addition: Specter met his match. Sen. Harry Reid promised seniority to Specter, then turned on him. CNS News
