Arlen Specterís Bad Day

Couldn't have happened to a better guy.

First, he says he would love to see Norm Coleman win his Senate race.

There's still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.

Then via Allah's Twitter feed we learn Specter remembers that heís now a Democrat and rooting for Republicans isnít cool.

And to cap the day off, his new Senate buddies give him a big old middle finger.

In a unanimous voice vote, the Senate approved a resolution that added Specter to the Democratic side of the dais on the five committees on which he serves, an expected move that gives Democrats larger margins on key panels such as Judiciary and Appropriations.

But Democrats placed Specter in one of the two most junior slots on each of the five committees for the remainder of this Congress, which goes through December 2010. Democrats have suggested that they will consider revisiting Specter's seniority claim at the committee level only after the midterm elections next year.

...When Supreme Court nomination hearings are held later this summer, Specter will be the last senator to ask questions of the eventual nominee -- a dramatically lower profile than in 2005 and 2006, when he chaired the committee and ran the confirmations of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr.

Now he may get his seniority back in 2011 at the start of the next Congress or he might not. I can't imagine why they would give it to him. They likely won't need him for the 60th vote by then and the Democrats he'd knock out of order are big time names. Why would they stand aside for this jerk?

What's Specter going to do? Switch back? As Winston Churchill said (and he knew of what he spoke) "anyone can rat, but it takes a certain ingenuity to re-rat." Specter is neither Churchill nor ingenious.

Either way he can't use seniority as a way to try and hold off a primary challenge or in a general election, if he makes it that far.

I guess he'll have to rely on his personal charm and steadfast character instead. Heh.

(The seniority story was via Jake Tapper's Twitter)

Enjoy him Democrats, this moral coward is all yours.
