Specter getting what he deserves

I predicted that RINO/DINO Specter would get screwed over by the democrats, and I was right.

Despite promises from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) would retain his seniority after switching parties, Specter will be put at the end of the seniority line on all his committees but one under a resolution approved on the floor late Tuesday.

Under the modified organizing resolution, Specter will not keep his committee seniority on any of the five committees that he serves on and will be the junior Democrat on all but one — the chamber’s Special Committee on Aging. On that committee, he will be next to last in seniority.

As a result, Specter — who as a Republican was ranking member on the Judiciary Committee and a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, as well as ranking member of the panel’s Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education — will now rank behind all the other Democrats…

Important lesson here on just what the “promises” of democrats is worth.

Specter should have demanded his thirty pieces of Silver up front.

  2. Specter may turn out to be the gift that keeps on giving to conservatives. Specter cheated Republicans out of the pleasure of firing him, so the PA Senator laid himself off from the GOP.

    The GOP is very happy about this though. His exit clarifies the GOP ‘brand’ and will really help in fund raising.

    For a more humorous take on why GOPers are happy the old goat is gone from the party, you can hit:
