Arlen Specter's defection to the Democrats seems to have the Republicans throwing a fit over the Democrats having too much control in the Senate.

But I really don't understand why anyone really cares. The Republican's haven't lost a vote? Specter was a RINO (Republican in Name Only). He already supported the President's agenda and would have joined the Democrats against a filibuster anyway.

I figure we are finally getting some honesty from Washington as Specter finally removes the thin mask.

If I remember my history, Arlen Specter started out as a Democrat, and shifted to Republican when it better advanced his career. That more-or-less indicates his integrity.

Of more concern: why now does being a Democrat in Pennsylvania seem to be a more promising career move?

I can think of both systemic and current-events-driven reasons.

He was going to lose his primary election (same reason he switched to GOP back in the '60s).
