Arlen Specter's sprint from the Republican Party after the first polls for 2010 showed he was likely to lose his party's nomination was not the end of this coward's antics. He then tried to claim the GOP has moved too far to the Right for a "Reagan Conservative" like himself. Arlen was always more of a "Carter Conservative." His dishonest justifications made most conservatives shout a hardy "good riddance," but this sleaze has taken it to another level. Now, he is blaming Republicans for Jack Kemp's death. When I first heard a comment about this, I thought surely it had to be taken out of context. No one is that contemptible (except Chuck Schumer or Paul Begala). But, Arlen proved he is truly a Democrat. He politicized the death of an American statesman to try to score political points. No matter, that the Bush administration and a Republican Congress greatly expanded federal funding for all types of medical research, the answer that would have saved Jack Kemp's life was definitely in a newly-discarded embryo. Arlen Specter must feel he has a lot of catching up to do to become the most disgraceful member of the U.S. Senate. He is making up ground rapidly.
