Republican Spector Comment Digest

I thought, as a public service, I would assemble a little sample of early Republican online comments about Arlen Spector's party switch. Here goes. I have added some well thought out constructive comments, as usual.

"See ya

written by Libertariot, April 28, 2009
Don't let the door hit you on the way out! Toomey just became the nominee!"

Because it sure doesn't make any difference to us, how many Senators we have.

"Good riddance. Take Snowe and Collins with you."

Good idea. Let's see if we can work that out.

"
I wish the Republicrat Party was governing from the right..."

And I wish Santa would come twice a year. Before they can "govern from the right," they have to "govern." That involves "winning elections." Good luck with that.

"
Many good things will come out of this Specter situation and the Republican Party will be stronger in the end."

Right.

"Where does Rick Santorum stand in all this? Is it too late to possibly run him in 2010?"

Please. Go ahead. Make my day.

"The GOP moved left

Let us join the battle, and right soon. In case of defeat I need time to find a new country to emigrate to (or start my own!)."

How about Texas?

" (Senator) DeMint says he would rather have 30 Republicans in the Senate who really believe in principles of limited government, free markets, free people, than. . . 50 that don't have a set of beliefs."

How about five Republicans that REALLY believe that, in greed is the true salvation of mankind? I like that idea even better.

This remark is particularly ironic, since DeMint's endorsement of right wing wacko Pat Toomey to defeat Spector is being cited as a significant factor in Spector's decision.

"Just fine for the democrats to nominate an 80 year-old man who dyes his hair orange and has recurrent cancer. this is definitely change we can believe in."

Well, at least John McCain didn't die his hair. I think.

"Like his ideological soulmate, Sen. John McCain, Specter's reputation for bipartisan moderation was always a function of his vain desire to be perceived as a "public servant."

And, for real Republicans, there is nothing worse than being a "public servant." They know whom they are paid to serve.

Well, this is all still pretty mild. Like everyone experiencing a loss, the Republicans still have to go through the denial stage. I'll keep on this. In a day or two we will be seeing some real wackiness.

Thanks for monitoring the right-wing comments.
They are very entertaining.
