Quote Of The Week: Working His Way Toward Irrelevance Edition

As voters considered his fate throughout Pennsylvania, Sen. Arlen Specter warned on Tuesday that without him Democrats may not be able to fend off a tea party “takeover.”

“If we’re not careful, if you don’t field the strongest candidate — frankly, like Arlen Specter — they’re going to take over,” Specter said of the tea parties. “Beating the tea party gang is more important than who does the beating.

They want to go back to the gold standard,” he added.“It’d be an 18th-century America.”

  1. Specter would do well to attend a tea party meeting or two. It's not about party, Arlen, it's about principles and the constitution. Perhaps he will have the time after November.
