RIP Arlen Spector

Arlen Specter dead at 82

The hatred and vitriol is already being spewed by the Wing-nuts. Obviously I had political differences with Mr. Spector, and think he was abysmal during the Clarence Thomas hearing, but in the end he did the right thing and paid the political price.

Yes, a man who clung to his convictions, in a day where he wouldn't be pilloried in this era of 24-hour-news and soundbites. Thank you for posting this.

Even though I'm a dyed-in-the-wool, left-wing, liberal Democrat, I do genuinely requite the demise of the "Rockefeller" wing of the Republican party. It's hard to believe there was a time when it was possible for a Republican to get elected without having to pay lip service to the worst excesses of the most extreme parts of the Social Conservative agenda.

Requite (if it's a word at all) was not the one I meant to use there....I intended to type "regret" I think.

Possibly something to do with requited/unrequited?

The headline could also be RIP-The Moderate wing of the Republican party. Anyone who dares to not be an anti-choice zealot is literally drummed out of the party. It's Stalinesque.
