Arlen Specter, Come on Down

Arlen Specter, Senator from Pennsylvania is switching to the Democratic Party. In hopes of re-election the often middle of the road Republican will now become a center-right Democrat. It is a flip flop of epic proportions, possibly giving the Democratic Party the power majority of 60 in the Senate.

(insert cloud overhang here)

Muahahahahahahah he has joined the Dark Side. There is nothing now to stop the Sith from taking over and establishing the Empire of Obama! Muahahahaha!!! Welcome Darth Arlen. Now we will use the Dark Side to promote pro-choice, gay marriage and unions...oh wait. What the?

The idea that Arlen "the Road Block" Specter is now switching parties is highly suspect. If you look at all the headaches he caused over the Recovery Act and now the Employee Free Choice Act (you can still be a Democrat and differ on these issues just not in Penn), this man is in a last ditch effort to keep his seat.

Or maybe he finally realized that being a Republican right now is worse than being a member of the Taliban. Or he felt alienated by his leaders. Or as he said, they have gone so far off into Planet Winguttia, he just couldn't stand it anymore....

"I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans," said Specter.

Now if only we could get him to infiltrate the Death Star and get us those schematics we so desperately need.
