30 Years On, and What Has Arlen Specter Got to Show for It?

By John W. Lillpop

Pity poor Arlene Specter. The man turned 80 years old in February, and has spent the last 30 years working in the United States Senate.

Typically, an 80 year old man leaving a job which he has held for 30 years would be entitled to a gold watch or something equally inane to commemorate his contributions.

However, in Specter’s case, leaving his job was nothing as glamorous or special as retirement. There was no magnifiant golden parachcute deal worth millions for the this political cross-dressing weasel from Pennsylvanian.

Rather, Specter was forcibly thrown out of office by voters who finally said, “enough is enough!” You are neither Democrat nor Republican and we are tired of your sorry self.

Thus ends the saga of the man who thought he had caught lightening in a bottle by following the pipings of one Barack Obama who, in April of 2009, seemed to have all the answers for all time.

All too late, Specter discovered that Obama’s piping was just another fairy tale that leads only to political ruin.

Still, it could not have happened to a more deserving fellow!
