“Despite promises from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) would retain his seniority after switching parties, Specter will be put at the end of the seniority line on all his committees but one under a resolution approved on the floor late Tuesday.”
Lie to Specter, get him to switch parties, then bitch-slap him. BWAHAAAHAAAA! Classic. What is he going to do about it? Switch back to the Republican party? Or admit that he only switched parties out of opportunism because of promises from Harry Reid? This is brilliant. Harry Reid enticed Specter to become a Democrat–for whatever that is worth–but is now treating him like the good back-stabbing worthless piece of shit that he is. Give him seniority, and allow him to jump ahead of other party members who have been loyal for years? Only pathetic wimpy idiotic Republicans would do such a thing. And take away this moron’s seniority and there is even less reason for any Pennsylvanian–Democrat or Republican or whatever–to vote for him come next election. The old fart is going down, and will soon be Mr. Irrelevant. Sometimes, as Harry Reid has just illustrated, having no scruples is a good thing, and really pays off when you want to give somebody what they really deserve.
