Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) has been struggling to convince Democrats that he is now one of them after switching parties with the shifting polls in his state. He did not help himself at a major dinner this week by twice thanking the Allegheny County Republicans. The problem is that he is not only running as a Democrat but the event was put on by the Allegheny County Democratic Committee as its annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.
On a prior occasion, Specter referred to a college Democratic group as “College Republican,” here.
President Obama is pushing for Specter to win the primary but Democrats appear to be flocking to Rep. Joe Sestak, a second-term congressman and retired admiral.
This is a lot like putting your first wife’s name on your second wife’s birthday cake. Awkward.
