Reid Screws Specter

It's an old, old story...

Satan lures a desperate man with promises of power and glory, then once the poor sap had commits himself and has nowhere else to turn, those promises turn to dust.

Democrats placed Specter in one of the two most junior slots on each of the five committees for the remainder of this Congress, which goes through December 2010. Democrats have suggested that they will consider revisiting Specter's seniority claim at the committee level only after the midterm elections next year.

"This is all going to be negotiated next Congress," Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), said tonight.

Specter's office declined to comment.

Poor Arlen. He's just realized that the Dems are just as sleazy and corrupt as he is. And it's too late..., too late..., too late....

Read about it here.

If I were a compassionate conservative I might feel a twinge of pity for poor Arlen, but I'm not, and I don't. He deserves it and I sorta enjoy watching him twist slowly..., slowly in the wind.

It's starting to look like a Sestak vs Toomey matchup in Pa. That could be really interesting.
