Senator Arlen Specter defects, changes party affiliation to become a Democrat.
So, what exactly is going to change? It is not like he has been voting lately with the Republicans.
One positive: We no longer have to apologize for this RINO.
Second (possible) positive: I just heard Bill Kristol say that this is a good thing for the Republicans due to the fact that Democrats are going to have to rule for the next year and a half without being able to blame Republicans for obstructionism. As a result, the American people will get a chance to see just how bad things are when the Democrats are in charge.
We will see, but I am glad to tell Senator Specter to make sure that door doesn't hit him on the way out.
