Don’t Think Twice

Arlen Specter…

“As the Republican Party has moved farther and farther to the right, I have found myself increasingly at odds with the Republican philosophy and more in line with the philosophy the Democratic Party”


“In the course of the last several months since the stimulus vote, I have traveled the state and surveyed the sentiments of the Republican Party in Pennsylvania and public opinion polls, observed other public opinion polls and have found that the prospects for winning a Republican primary are bleak.I am not prepared to have my 29-year record in the United States Senate decided by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate — not prepared to have that record decided by that jury, the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate.”

So which is it chief? Are you really at odds with the party you’ve counted yourself a member for the past twenty-nine years? Or are you just a yellow coward. Because when you started your speech, I almost believed you were sincere. And then I realized, big shock, that you’re a politician!

This game isn’t about morals. This game isn’t about “finding yourself increasingly at odds” with anything. This game is about winning, and if you thought you could be successful with the Libertarians you sure as hell would be.

So if you don’t want to call yourself a republican, that’s find. We don’t want to call you one either. But don’t by God call yourself a liberal because you sure as hell ain’t that either.

You’re an official member of the coward party, and when if you ever win a state they won’t paint it red, or blue, they’ll coat it yellow.

Nobody in this media is going to criticize you, after all your not a liberal becoming a democrat. You’re not Joe Lieberman… Because, among other things, Lieberman became a Republican when they weren’t the entirely dominant party. And I’m not about to say that he wasn’t playing the game, because there is no doubt he was. But the fact is, he’s a much more sneaky game player than you.

Now, I don’t want to take away any of your achievements. You’ve served your country and your former party for 29 years, and that’s great. But don’t think about crawling back when were back on top…

 “I ain’t sayin’ you treated me unkind. You coulda done better but, I don’t mind. You just sorta wasted my precious time. But don’t think twice, it’s alright.”
