If the call had been from a real person rather than a recording of someone saying he represented some Republican organization, I would have responded in kind. Don't call a Democrat who left that diseased organization and try to trash Senator Specter. Why do they think he and the rest of us left?
I have always voted for Arlen Specter. He thinks independently. Democrats should not gloat. His changing from Republican to Democrat is not a victory for the Dems. It is a resounding renunciation of what the GOP has become - a bunch of sniveling, whining, prejudiced, closed-minded, selfish, fearful, pseudoChristian, intellectually infantile negativists. There are many of us who are not Democrats yet are forced to be registered as such because there is no alternative. We need another political party.

After church I stopped at a friend's to do something on the computer for her. This little gal was sitting on the windowsill beside me.
When I got home, Tommie was lying in the shade of the house.
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
