I can’t tell you how angry I am at this stimulus passing, and the double cross from Arlen Specter was just the icing on the cake.Â He’ll be hard pressed for getting me to vote for him.Â Like, he better vote against an assault weapons ban or something.Â I will definitely support any primary challenger against Specter.
Dear Senator Specter,
I have been a long time supporter of yours since I started voting at eighteen years of age.Â I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that you broke with your fellow Republicans and voted for this wasteful, and pork laden “stimulus” bill, that is basically a decades old wish list of Democratic Party spending that will do little to help fix our economic situation.
I can not stomach the thought of passing off a bill this large to future generations, when our government was already too much in debt.Â I have to admit, I will have a difficult time justifying supporting you in 2010.Â If I’m going to vote for a Senator who votes like a Democrat, I might as well just vote for a Democrat.Â At least I’ll know what to expect.

Specter is the poster boy for lesser of two evils, and he’s consistently been.Â The Democrats tend to run far left candidates against him, because he does well among moderate Democrats.Â If polling is to be believed, Democrats like him better than Republicans.Â That’s hardly surprising.Â He’s consistently won my vote by being less stomach turning than the other guy.Â I’d say he’s not going to do it again, but if I had a dime for every time I’ve sworn off voting for Arlen Specter I’d be a rich man.
