No Honor Among Thieves

Party Switch Costs Specter His Seniority on Senate Committees
The Senate last night stripped Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) of his seniority on committees, a week after the 29-year veteran of the chamber quit the Republican Party to join the Democrats.
Bwahahaha. Welcome to the party of Hopenchange. Couldn't happen to a nicer fella.
The loss of seniority could prove costly to Specter in his campaign to win reelection in 2010, denying him the ability to distinguish himself from a newcomer in his ability to claim key positions.
He who lives by the sword (of politics) dies by the sword (of politics). Put that in your re-election pipe and smoke it.
