Today’s announcement by Arlen Specter that he will switch parties and officially become a democrat signifies the first time the average IQ of both parties will increase.
Specter’s change is merely a formality. It’s kind of like getting married after shacking up and raising children and grandchildren for fifty years. Specter has been a republican in name only for years. Does that make him a closet bipartisan?
Although Specter said:
Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the Republican Party has moved far to the right. Last year, more than 200,000 Republicans in Pennsylvania changed their registration to become Democrats. I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans.
The truth of the matter is, both parties have slid to the left. The democrats these days are primarily socialists or democratic-socialists and the republicans are democratic-socialist-lite. Too many republicans have campaigned on conservative principles only to get into office and act like democrats. We need only look at GW Bush to see the truth of this. He spent like a drunken liberal then brought us to the door of socialism and knocked (think TARP). It’s amazing that we have so many lawyers in Congress and yet darn few of them seem to understand (or even read) the Constitution.
I’m reminded of that song right now. Na-na-na-na. hey-hey-hey. Goodbye!
Mr. Specter, please don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.
