Remember when I was excited about Arlen Specter as a Democrat?

Well, now I’m not so much anymore. Seems like he’s still just being a Republican:

“There’s still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.”

Do “justice”? Seriously? They already did justice, and found that Coleman’s shitty case was just that. But now we wait for appeals, on an on…

Rumor has it that Tom Ridge may run for the Pennsylvania Senate seat. So if the Dems don’t throw Specter’s ass out in a primary, a Ridge-Specter battle for PA Senator would be no sure thing for the Democrats.

    From a comment on a wonkette post about the same thing:

    We may be making too much out of this. Specter is a senile cretin, but here’s an interesting comment from a TPM reader:

    In context Specter’s comment is clearly tongue in cheek:

    “With your departure from the Republican Party, there are no more Jewish Republicans in the Senate. Do you care about that?

    Specter: I sure do. There’s still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.”
