Not long after Specter met privately with Republican senators to explain his decision (he just joind the Party of Evil), the party's leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, said the switch posed a "threat to the country." The issue, he said, "really relates to ... whether or not in the United States of America our people want the majority party to have whatever it wants, without restraint, without a check or balance."
sure, as long as it isn't the Republican Party, I'm okay with that ...? WTF? The GOP has wanted that for themselves ... power hungry pricks just don't want to share. Oh, I guess the Democrats don't either.
Jr.Gopher #1: why do I have to share?
me: Because sharing means everyone is equally unhappy.
Specter's switch leaves them with 59 Senate seats. Democrat Al Franken is ahead in a marathon recount in Minnesota. If he ultimately defeats Republican Norm Coleman, he would become the party's 60th vote — the number needed to overcome a filibuster that might otherwise block legislation.
I think we just got doomed to our election dragging on and on and on and on and one ....
