Thereâ€™s plenty of buzz from the mainstream media about Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter
â€™s so called defection from the Republican to the Democratic Party.
But in the VDARE.COM
breakroom, the consensus is â€?who cares?â€?
Specter has been officially and unofficially a Democrat all his life, dating back to his early political career as Philadelphiaâ€™s District Attorney.
More recently as a RINO, Specter has consistently voted with the Democrats on passing an amnesty and issuing more non-immigrant visas.
Whichever party he represents, Specter will face a tough re-election bid.
Here in Pittsburgh, the Post-Gazette ran an unofficial poll
asking readers if they thought Specter made the right or choice by switching or if he should retire. By nearly a 2-1 margin, readers wanted the fossilized Specter to retire.
Specterâ€™s political future
is just as tenuous as a Democrat as it was as a Republican
