Arlen Gets Made

"As far as Jimmy was concerned with Tommy being made, it was like we were all being made. We would now have one of our own as a member."

That is the scene when Henry and Jimmy think Tommy is being made but he is really being taken to a house wrapped in plastic and is whacked before uttering a half-obscenity.

Present Arlen Specter. They've seperated him from the party and are now destroying him. It really is disturbing to watch.


  1. Typical of politial reporters to so fundamentally misinterpret voters. If/When Specter looses D votes, it will have nothing to do with his honesty about reasons why he switched, but more about his dishonesty regarding keeping committee and senior positions, in addition to a horrible past that burns in my mind concerning Anita Hill. Cumulatively, he's toast, hopefully.

    But hereafter, politicians will recoil from honesty regarding party switches because that's the ridiculous spin reporters chose.

  2. If I'm getting you right, I think I agree. Reporters wanted him to jump out the GOP tent with his fingers on his nose going "Oh man, horrible stuff is going on in there." But all they got was "GOP is trying to take me down. The primary was all but lost. If I switch parties now, I get to keep my job."

    I do think this was a planned job from the start. Dems saw a weakened gazelle...and you know the rest.
