Steaming Load Award: The Arlen Spectercle Switcheroo.
Make no mistake, I am solidly in the ‘good riddance’ camp on this butt bullet.
Arlen Specter, who began his political life as a Demoncrat, built his career on the political switcheroo. In 1966 he did the political math, and decided that he would enjoy more success in the Elephant Clan. That worked like gang busters, but, try as he might, he couldn’t hide those Libertard lemming leanings.
Despite his frequent ‘bite me’ antics, which enraged his Elephant Clan supporters, Arlen fooled enough of them, enough of the time, to win four straight senatorial elections. In 2004, his Libertard sins started to catch up with him, but the intervention of Vicente W. Bush helped him seal the deal for that fourth term. Happy days are here again? Not really.
Arlen was bummed, after the pachyderm punks lost control of congress in 2006. Being the minority party wasn’t any fun, and it denied Arlen his place in the political spotlight. He found a way to fix that, in the early months of the Obamunist Error, when he gave his party, and his constituents, the finger. He pulled it off, by casting the critical vote that allowed the Porkulus Bill to pass. Happy days are here, again, finally? Yes, and no.
While the Broadcast Blowjob Brigade and the Obamunists hailed Arlen as a hero, his Elephant Clan constituents weren’t thrilled spitless. Faster than a charging RHINO, Arlen’s re-election bid in 2010 was in big trouble. It got worse, when another Elephant Clan pol, Pat Toomey, threw his hat in the ring, opposing Arlen. Did Arlen buckle down and fight for his job? Nope.
He turned tail, sold out the Pennsylvania voters who let him swill at the public trough for 3 decades, and kicked them in the balls with this steaming, rhetorical turd:"It has become clear to me that the stimulus vote caused a schism which makes our differences irreconcilable. On this state of the record, I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate. I have not represented the Republican Party. I have represented the people of Pennsylvania." (Arlen Specter’s official bite me announcement, emphasis added.)Who the hell does this titanic turd think he is? You’re an employee of ‘we the people’, scumbag, not their master. That means, every 6 years, you re-apply for your job in a primary election. If you make the cut, you graduate to the second round, where you must pass muster by winning over a majority of the state voters. If you think that process is demeaning, GET OVER IT. Your job will last just as long as the citizens of Pennsylvania say it will last, and not one moment longer. They deserve better than a egotistical weasel like you.
I don’t care what party Arlen is in, it’s time for the citizens of Pennsylvania to flush him out of the Senate, permanently.
