The Lady Speaks

Arlen Specter ‘hearts’ Santorum

Arlen feels so strongly about Sen. Santorum that he wrote a Letter To The Editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer, saying he’s making it his ‘top priority’ to make sure Ricky’s elected.

So, now we know Specter subscribes to ‘Republikanische Partei über alles‘. [Republican Party over everything.] If you are a Republican group, your sole duty is to re-elect an incumbent Republican. If you are a Democratic group, you will be silenced. Dissent is not allowed.

From the March 14th edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer:

I strongly disagree with the comments of Jennifer Stockman, on behalf of the Republican Majority for Choice, criticizing U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (“S. Dakota abortion law is an assault,” March 8 ).

While Sen. Santorum and I disagree on issues, I believe that he has done an excellent job for Pennsylvania and ought to be reelected. Without his support, I would not have won the 2004 Republican primary. Sen. Santorum’s reelection is my top priority in 2006.

The organization which identifies itself as the Republican Majority for Choice ought not to be actively seeking to defeat Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate.

Washington, D.C.

This raises some questions, the main one being: What does this mean for our chances to pressure Specter – as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee – into holding hearings and investigating the President’s authorization of illegal wiretapping and law-breaking?

Not to be a defeatist – just a realist – I’d say our chances are somewhere between slim and none.

Partei über alles‘.

Party over everything.
