Arlen Specter is Desperate in Pennsylvania

Arlen Specter is clearly desperate in Pennsylvania. He is now trailing Democrat rival Joe Sestak for the Democrat Nomination.

This is video of a new Specter ad featuring none other than "The One" himself. Maybe his presence will help as much as it did in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts....heh heh


Specter to Hatch - They're Coming for You Next

FOX News Blog

by Trish Turner | Senior Capitol Hill Producer

When a three term incumbent senator of any affiliation is knocked off, a shiver runs through the club. "Am I next?" appears to hang in the air, precariously wafting through the ornate halls. And in a rare moment of candor, I got a glimpse of this.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-UT, invited me to join him on the underground subway that connects the outer office buildings to the Capitol, as we chatted. It's about a four minute ride, but boy did I want it to be longer today. Sitting across from us - Sen. Arlen Specter, D-PA, who is in the political fight for his life back home with polls showing him down against his primary opponent, Rep. Joe Sestak.

It's an odd turn of events in Pennsylvania, with Specter jumping the GOP ship when a challenge from the far right from former Rep. Pat Toomey, former head of the conservative Club for Growth, proved too much for him.

Meanwhile, across the country, three-term incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett, R-UT, just got his head handed to him Saturday at a party convention...

Now back to that subway ride. Here's what then transpired, perhaps best put in script form --- my rough log of my journey:

Specter to Hatch: So - you better watch out, Orrin, Toomey's coming to get you next.
Hatch: What's that?
Specter: That Club for Growth is going to be coming for you next just like they did me.
Hatch: Man - they really savaged Bob. But they're after Republicans.
Specter: Well, they got me.
Hatch: It's vicious out there.
Specter thinking, pauses - looks at me, smiling wryly: Well, you've got the big scoop now don't you?
Gulp. Did I ever. As "fly on the wall" moments go, that one was pretty darn decent.

Spector’s soon to be a spectator. Good riddance.

That silent majority is no longer going to sit by idly and watch politicians take this country into ruin. It's that silent majority that bled and died on battlefields to make this country what it is. It's that silent majority that works every day, pays their taxes, and obeys the law that are fed up with elite career politicians destroying what they've worked to create. Now, that silent majority has become a roaring lion seeking to devour any politician, Democrat or Republican, who will not uphold the Constitution of the United States.

Well ole, Arlen don't have Bush to kick around anymore or bail his butt out. Toomey will kick that butt back to Philadelphia and good riddence.

Toomey almost won last time dispite Bush but lost by the narrowest of margins. This time he's going great and it will be good to see The 'Spectre' get his.
