Specterism of the day
Via the Left Coaster:
Arlen “Single Bullet” Specter once again collapsed like wet toilet paper, when he caved in to Shooter and agreed not to force telecom executives to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee on their role in the NSA spying programs. And what concession did Cheney’s bitch get out of the deal? The Administration “will consider” legislation putting the NSA programs under the judicial purview of the FISA court. Note the pointed complaint from Patrick Leahy. In response to Specter’s abdication of responsibility, CNN’s Jack Cafferty called him a “gutless Republican worm” this afternoon.
Ah, consistency. By the way, Arlen is supposedly fuming over Dick Cheney's apparent fenagling to undermine Senate hearings on domestic spygate. He even got real, real mad on the Senate floor and fired off a strongly worded letter (don't hurt 'em, Arlen...) I'm sure he'll flit around the committee room with his hair on fire for a few days and then go back home and have a warm glass of milk.

Impolitical has the best line on Specter today:
Arlen bringing his knife to the gun fight
