Specter: I'd Like To Keep Sucking At The Public Teat Please

You stay classy Arlen....

Sources tell ABC News that Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Penn., has informed the White House that he would like to consider remaining in public service after his senate term ends at the end of this session, and White House officials are keeping an open mind about possible job openings for him.

...Talk of such a job, however, has raised eyebrows among Specter’s Republican Senate colleagues who are now eyeing his votes with added scrutiny. For instance, Specter seemed not particularly impressed with Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, whose nomination as Solicitor General Specter opposed last year. This week he announced support for her Supreme Court nomination.

See ole Arlen had a choice, he can vote no on Kagan, like he did when she was up for Solicitor General, as revenge for Obama's unwillingness to come out at the last minute and help him against Joe Sestak in the primary. Or he could vote yes in hopes of getting some sinecure that would allow him to "continue to serve the public"/have some position to keep his shriveled up, um, ego, in the public eye.

As always, Arlen did what was best for Arlen.

Meanwhile, Pat Toomey is in a close race with Joe Sestak but has a clear lead in money.

Less wealthy Republicans are doing well elsewhere. In Pennsylvania, Republican Pat Toomey raised more than $3 million in the quarter, and had $4.6 million on hand. Democratic nominee Joe Sestak, who defeated incumbent Arlen Specter in a tough primary, raised $1.9 million for the quarter. He had about $2 million on hand.

Meanwhile Sestak is getting hammered by the new Emergency Committee For Israel over his stances on behalf of Palestinians over Israel.

I'm glad Arlen is done, I still wish that Toomey had been the one to finish him.
