Hey, Arlen!

You're supposed to be a Democrat now, ya asshole:
In an interview with the New York Times, Specter stated in no uncertain terms that he wants Norm Coleman to win the disputed Minnesota Senate race: "There's still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner."
Somebody needs to tell Specter that he can face a challenger in a Democratic primary, too. And btw, Sen. Specter, mind your own fucking business! Don't even try to tell me here in Minnesota who I should have--despite the decision of the voters and three counts & courts--as a senator. What's the email address for Joe Sestak's campaign, again?


Well, it looks like Sen. Specter is now claiming confusion:
So was Specter somehow joking when he said he still supports Norm Coleman? A few asked. And we were curious. So Eric Kleefeld asked interviewer Deborah Solomon. And she was sure Specter meant it.

[...]The really weird thing is that you'd figure one of the biggest benefits of leaving the GOP would be not having to pretend to like Norm Coleman anymore. So the whole thing's sort of weird, right?
I think Arlan's losing it; I've rarely seen such a naked confession of addiction to power and prestige as Specter has demonstrated in the last few days. Usually congresscritters like him manage to keep that special gleam out of their eyes, but Specter hasn't concealed his true motivations from the start: he wants to keep being a Senator.

Well, as Kos said, at least we can agree with Specter that we need more Democrats in Congress. But damn, I'd kick Norm to the curb at the first opportunity!
