    “Moderate” is AP for “troubled.”

    I was thinking more along the lines of WRONG PARTY AFFILIATION?

  3. Gary from Jersey says:

    Are we supposed to feel bad (or anything) about this?

  4. tree hugging sister says:

    Not suggesting an opinion either way on that aspect, Gary. Just noting how the AP conveniently forgets what party the late Senator belonged to, OF HIS OWN ACCORD, at his demise.

    I spent my college years in Philadelphia and remember him as just this guy, so to speak. He had been Senator forever or so it seemed. His wife had a more direct affect on me, as she had created and marketed an apple tart which we served at many, many events (I worked as a waitress for a catering company).

  6. Dr Alice says:

    *Effect, dammit. I hate when I do that.

    Yeah, funny how the Lame Stream Media works, isn’t here? A oddly selective memory.

  8. JeffS says:

    “isn’t IT?”, I mean. Grrrr!

    Pretty bad when you die after decades as a US Senator and will be remembered for your wife’s great tarts.

    (and I mean that in the filthiest way you can imagine.)

    Never could stand the guy regardless which party he had jumped to. Another career politician who thought he was entitled to his position. I will not speak bad of the dead though, even if I would like to…

    Speaking of Fish wrap, did anyone see this from Japan? A female masturbating bar opens. I’m assuming its a self serve. Can you imagine the greeter telling the customers to go F@@$ themselves as they enter the establishment?

    THS, don’t forget Specter started as a Democrat, switched to the Republican party, then returned to his roots when the Republicans had had enough of him.

  14. nightfly says:

    One recent article I saw wrote that Specter “became one of the most visible players in the reshaping of the Supreme Court confirmation process, and in turn influenced the very kind of justices who are now appointed to fill the nation’s highest court, legal scholars say.”

    Yeah, that’s one way to put it.
