Sen. Arlen Specter gets played like a $5 hooker

     Bwa ha ha ha.  Oh man the tears of laughter are rolling now.  What a screw job.  This is like a sitcom script.  After Specter burns his Republican bridges in an effort to ensure his reelection in PA he finds out a dirty little secret, the Democrats don’t like him either.  He thought he was going to walk in as top dog and get some choice committee chairs to help bolster his clout.  No way Jose!  You go to the bottom of the pile on the DNC team.

WASHINGTON (CNN)  The full Senate voted Tuesday to strip Specter of his seniority, dropping him to the bottom of the pile on every committee he sits on. “Sen. [Harry] Reid said that I would maintain my committee assignments and that my seniority would be established as if I’d been elected in 1980 as a Democrat,” the long-serving Pennsylvania senator told CNN’s Dana Bash.  As it stands, Specter is junior to Montana’s Sen. Jon Tester, who has been in the Senate since 2007.  Specter was in the driver’s seat when the Senate Judiciary Committee grilled the two newest Supreme Court justices in 2005. But he will be the very last to speak this time — after even Sen. Ted Kaufman of Delaware, who has been a senator for four months.

     To add insult to injury as a Republican committee representative he was funded for a larger staff.  He just found out that he is no longer allotted that staff and they are being dolled out to other DNC members with more seniority.  In his case more seniority equates to only 4 months in office.  This is frakin priceless!
