My next issue is to get Santorum retired, he is such a closet bigoted douche
Ha ha. I couldn't agree more.
I can't pretend to have been informed as to the strategy of voting for Specter. I just thought there was no reason to remove him given that I agree with him on most things, even though Hoeffel seemed good enough.
I was thinking the same thing about joining up with the Republicans just so I can effect change. It would leave a bad taste in my mouth, right now, though. Maybe in a couple of months.
