Specter Leaves the GOP

So, even though this isn’t going to have a giant impact on a potential vote on immigration (he was pro-immigration already), I feel like I have to post on Arlen Specter’s move to the Democratic Party.

Specter’s move is symbolic of an even larger fight happening in the Republican party. My take? Those same extremist anti’s that are foaming at the mouth about “illegals” right now are driving away the more moderate (and sensible) folks in the party. Sound familiar?
