Senate Democrats seem to be keeping their distance from Sen. Arlen "Weather Vane" Specter: they voted unanimously to strip him of his seniority, so he'll be the lowest ranking Dem on each committee that he sits on. Small wonder. As a new Dem, he voted against the Administration's budget and other bills, said he opposed the Employee Free Choice Act, said he didn't want the Administration's plan for health care to pass, wished Rethug Sen. Norm "The Loser" Coleman would remain in the Senate, and denied that he was a "loyal Democrat."
Maybe there's still time for him to join Sen. Joe Lieberliar's "Party of Joe."
