The Wrath of Arlen

Peter Hoff, over at USA Today, thinks that the Democrats' treatment of Specter is a manifestation of overweening hubris that will come back to bite them. He writes that hubris has "clouded their judgment."

Read it here.

Overweening hubris and clouded judgment, aren't those in the job description for U. S. Senator? Certainly sounds like a good description of our boy Arlen. He deserves every humiliation that is heaped on him and more. But Hoff is right. The Dems at some point in the future are going to need Specter's vote, and when they do....

Specter may be a fool, but he has a long memory. He does not forget, and he does not forgive.
