Arlen the Wonder Senator: No Grip on Reality
So Arlen Specter (R*), the Wonder Senator from my former state of Pennsylvania, has apparently lost all touch with reality. In joining “Republicans” Olympia Snowe (R* – Maine) and Susan Collins (R* – Mainly Out to Lunch) to support the Pork-ulus Bill put supported by Comrade Obama and Nancy Pelosi (D – Pyongyang), he had this to say:
Specter said Friday night that action was “very necessary,” and this bill, though not perfect, is better than inaction.
“I think no one could argue with the fact that the situation would be much worse without this bill,” Specter said at a news conference.
Ummm…’scuse me, Mr. Specter? That’s my hand up there, arguing that the situation will be much worse with this joke of a bill. Thanks much, Mr. Specter; isn’t there something else you could be doing besides screwing up the country?
* – Used to mean something. Doesn’t anymore. Particularly for Arlen the Wonder Senator.
