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.

You’d think this guy would get the message.
Something is wrong upstairs.
I think you are correct. I do think that anyone with the designation of Incumbent will have a rough road to hoe for being the “Ho” they have been.
It looks like democrats are sending their party a message.
And so he did…and badly I hear…
It looks like Specter could very well lose. His margins in Philadelphia are not large enough and Sestak is popular in western Pennsylvania.
Re: Specter –
As Jon Stewart might say … “This F***ing Guy”.
Can’t help you with biology today – the two things commonly found in cells that I’m focused on right now are Cdc25a and MPF and how their mutual regulation during the G2 phase of the cell cycle works…
Thanks for the info – good news if the Specter v. Sestak polls are correct. FYI, Nate Silver has them even vs. Toomey, but likes Sestak going forward (less baggage – I would also add that he’s not an incumbent senator, either).

Opponents of Senate Bill 1070 have deep
and reasonable concerns about the racially
stigmatizing potential of Arizona’s new anti-
illegal-immigration law. It has the effect of
separating Americans by race.
It is ironic, then, that so few opponents of SB

Unified School District, a program whose

using their children as political pawns.
The TUSD ethnic-studies program has
thrived primarily for two reasons. …

“So to sum up, it’s not okay to advocate the overthrow of the government in an ethnic studies class, which doesn’t happen anyway. But it’s totally okay for stupid white people to advocate the overthrow of the government in any other kind of class, or anywhere else at all. Makes total sense.”
