He has proven to be the lowest form of scum politician . The only reason he switched is because he knew he was going to be defeated in the primary. But he was never a repub anyway, just a politician trying to keep his power. He will fit in well.

Welcome to filibuster proof politburo comrades!

I for one believe that his Democratic affiliation began much earlier, specifically 1980, and that this announcement is merely the formalization of a process that began nearly 3 decades ago.

that got you where you are. I wonder though, what difference does a filibuster proof Senate really make? I just read where Obama's Budget will pass and not even be brought to the floor (& thus, subject to filibuster).

Oh Ted, don't think I don't remember how you defended ALF's Dad for doing almost this same thing to CT (only worse, imo). How does it feel to have it happen in your state with a rat fleeing the good ship Republicum?

Filibuster is being bypassed for his med plan, I believe, by attaching it to the budget which only requires a 50%+ vote or something along those lines. I don't think ol Joe's defection was as bad as he ran as an independent. Just watched Specter's news conf and he admitted he had polled and couldn't win as a dem and that's the main reason he's switching. He didn't seem to think there is any problem.

They don't have the necessary 60 Dems yet as Franken still hasn't been seated.

Well, maybe not today or tomorrow, but once Franken gets seated, the Dems have a filibuster proof Senate and Reid and Pelosi will be able to basically pass anything they want.

If you go back and see my posts regarding the Fuckhole Specter, you will see that ever since the "Scotish Law" charade to save Clinton he has not had my support (barely existent before that)...my revulsion has nothing to do with switching parties as he has that right and it will cost him anyway...Specter is now and has been for a long time a whiny, self serving cum eating manwhore worthy of two things: assfucking by an aids infested death row inmate or castration...maybe both!

Mike, we're fucked anyway you slice it...at least if the Dems get the 60 there will be no blame on Repubs going forward...can't be responsible for what you can't stop...that said...all these politicians need to face the lash and then deportment.

You're a softie. They all need to be hanged. Well, at least 60 of them to start with.

He is a politician first and foremost, not a public servant.
