Well, I guess this was to be expected, but Arlen Specter joined sides with the Democratic Party. Now that this act has taken place, I guess the Republican party can move on now. In weeding out the RINOs, they might be able to find the solid ideals that define the GOP.
I would liken this to Anakin Skywalker joining the dark side, but Specter is just too old to fit the analogy. He would more resemble Palpatine in terms of age. As one of the three RINOs that supported the “Stimulus Bill”, I guess this wasn’t really a surprise at all. With Specter finally being honest, he can go to the party he belongs. And the Republicans can return to their values.
