Current National Chairman of the Republican Party, Michael Steele, threated Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter after he voted for the stimulus funding a few months ago.
Steele tried to warn Specter that the party would withdraw support from Specter if he did not tow the party line. Insurgent conservative candidate Pat Toomey threatened to unseat Specter in the Republican primary in 2010.
Now Arlen Specter is a Democrat!
Steele's cajoling has backfired. Terribly.
I am reviving this blog (for now) to state for the record just how amazed I am at the sheer incompetency of Michael Steele and his organization.
Thanks for the filibuster-busting 60th vote in the Senate, man! We Democrats really appreciate the help!
