Breaking News: Senator Specter Switching Political Affiliation
In somewhat surprising news, longtime liberal Republican Senator Arlen Specter is apparently switching to the Democrat party. The move, which simultaneously raises the average intelligence and integrity of both major political parties, is believed to be because of an anticipated strong primary challenge.
Good riddance! Specter was never really much of a Republican and likely became one for political expediency so it is rather appropriate that he leaves the party out of political expediency. I'm sure his statement will make some BS case about the party changing and him feeling more at home with the Democrats. However, truth is he has a better chance in the Democrat primary and switching parties allows him to make the argument to voters that he will have more power in representing them since the Dems hold a large majority of senate seats.
