GOP's Haunting Specter

The republiCON party lost another Senator today. Pennsylvania Senator Arlene Specter, who has represented this state for the GOP for five terms will now join the Democrats.

RepubliCON party Chairman Michael Steele basically said good riddens to the former loyal GOP foot solider stating the Senator Specter was likely to lose the GOP primary because of his voting record.

Others however point to the GOP's strident rhetoric and intolerance as forcing out of the party more moderate voices like Specter. Senator Specter's defection reveals the GOP big tent claims as less bigtop and more of pup tent.

It appears the GOP is now doing to itself what it did to the country for the last eight years. It couldn't happen to a more deserving party.
