Commie ratfink Arlen Specter’s defection to the Demmerkrats will ensure them of a veto-proof Congress but it may still bite them, a little. Justice Souter’s replacement by a female (black, probably) liberal has to receive at least one Republican vote to get through the Judicial Committee. Until now, Specter was that vote. With him gone over to the dark side, the Republicans have a chance to kill any number of nominations. Of course, they’ll probably appoint another wuss, in the name of “bi-partisanship”, but perhaps they’ll show some backbone this time. Perhaps.
