Never trust a turncoat

Memo to Senate Democrats:  Don't trust your newest member, Arlen Specter, former Pennsylvania Republican.

In a tease to an interview to be published Sunday, Time Magazine's "The Page" quotes Specter on the contested Minnesota Senate race between Democrat Al Franken and Republican Norm Coleman . . . "There's still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner."  (Link here.)

Clearly Specter is all about Specter - or at least the old boys' club that is the U.S. Senate and counts Coleman as a member already.

Or, maybe, Specter is concerned about the rule of law and can't believe the injustice being done to Coleman by counting ballots differently in different parts of the state.  Nah, couldn't be that.
