And Then There Were Fifty-Nine…

Arlen Specter crosses the aisle.  Welcome aboard, Senator!

Is it political self-preservation?  Sure it is and my opinion of party-switchers hasn’t changed; if you are going to do it, you should immediately resign and run in a special election.  For God’s sake, don’t have less integrity than Phil Gramm!  And this move will only encourage more judicial intransigence by Norm Coleman.  Still, it’s nicer to be on the giving end than the receiving end of this sort of news for a change.

This Just In!

Rest of the nation astonished to learn that Phil Gramm has no morals, no scruples, and no reflection! Film at eleven!
In other news, John McCain is totally a maverick and not a low-rent George W. Bush clone.

Now There’s a Brain Trust for Ya!

McCain turns to Phil Gramm for economic advice. I don’t make jokes here, folks, I just watch the politicians and report the facts.

In other news, Fred Thompson has dropped out of the presidential race (or, rather, mosey), astonishing a nation that had no idea he was ever in it.
