Bold Color Conservative: Benedict Specter makes the switch

Excerpted from this post at Bold Color Conservative

Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter has decided to switch from the GOP
to the Democrat party. Not that we'll miss him much, but the switch
gives Dems 59 votes in the Senate. Barely a month ago Spector said,
"I'm staying a Republican because I think I have a more important role
to play there. I think the United States very desperately needs a
two-party system. ... And I'm afraid that we're becoming a one-party
system..." But Specter's switch effectively ends two-party rule in
America as Republicans can no longer stop legislation in the Senate.
Should Al Franken successfully complete his theft of Norm Coleman's
Senate seat in Minnesota, then Dems will have a filibuster-proof
majority of sixty votes in the Senate.
