Arlen Specter Is Only Human On Earth To Continue Supporting Norm Coleman

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Ha ha the very liberal Arlen Specter wants Norm Coleman to fight it out, up there in Minnesota! He tells the New York Times, “There’s still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.” Hmm not really. Libtards are going nuts about how Arlen Specter isn’t saying everything the Democratic leadership wants him to say. But who gives a shit what Arlen Specter says about Norm Coleman? Party hacks, everywhere. UPDATE: HAHAHA, Arlen Specter was really just making a Jew joke. [TPM]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • ManchuCandidate

    Arlen Spector, making Joe Lieberman look like a totally loyal Dem since May 2009.

  • StephanieInCA

    Isn’t there some kind of GOP Lemon Law where you can return him within 7 days if he turns out to be defective? I hope to fuck Harry Reid kept the receipt.

  • chascates

    Soon even Vinegar Joe won’t be lunching with Arlen. And how long till he pisses off the furries?

  • V572625694

    You’d think we’d learn after Lieberman. Tweety nailed him pretty good the other day on Olberman’s show: he’ll do whatever he has to stay a senator, and doesn’t give a fat rat’s ass about “his” party.

    When you get a high-level defector you have to be careful he isn’t a mole. Anal probing at the least. Maybe Doctor Congressman Ron (father of Rand) Paul could be engaged to do the job. Because who knows what you’d find up there.

  • Jukesgrrl

    Dear D’arlen, There’s still time for you to die of a misplaced botox injection before the next election, too.

  • Scrodd

    StephanieInCA – I hate you. I thought you said “lemon party” not “lemon law”. After that I see the names Harry Reid and Arlen Specter. Ten gallons of eye bleach, STAT.

  • The Huffington Pogue

    Sen. Bulworth, (?-PA)

  • charlesdegoal

    He’ll be the Democrats’ worst nightmare. You read it here.

  • Tron Stuart Mill

    [re=308969]V572625694[/re]: Harry Reid only buttersticks Harry Reid.

  • Jukesgrrl

    [re=308961]StephanieInCA[/re]: He’s still a Republican until he goes to Pennsylvania and files a change of registration card.

  • Bearbloke

    Are we sure ol’ Arlen isn’t acting so erratic because of a touch of the MEXICAN SWINE-FUCKER ZOMBIE DEATH PLAGUE Flu? I think he’s been in THE HOT ZONE all week, right?

    And speaking of theMEXICAN SWINE-FUCKER ZOMBIE DEATH PLAGUE Flu, here’s the real story your bread-and-circuses librul media WON’T tell you, until it’s too latethis was ‘accidentally’ posted to BBC News a few days ago, but The Men in Black made them take it down… stay asleep, Sheeple, stay asleep…

  • SayItWithWookies

    Ah, the TPM commenters sleuthed it out — he was being facetious. Everyone seems to have bought it, though.

  • OrangeAlert

    At least he’ll have the Democrats’ backs if they decide to go to unilateral war again…unless something changed in the past 6 years I’m not aware of.

    He also started out as a Democrat which makes him the Congressional equivalent of a drunk college girl that can’t decide if she’s gay or just “bicurious”.

  • facehead

    I’m afraid Wonkette will miss out on reporting the most important news story of the day:

  • DC Hates Me

    I voted for a US Senator and all I got was a malignant tumor.

  • SnarkNotFark

    Maybe, just maybe, Specter knows he is closer to leaving this mortal coil than he lets on. If so, Gov. Rendell would have no compunction about appointing a Dem to take his seat. Just maybe, but he is still acting mega-douchey.

  • freppish

    i think im going to burst a blood vessel you’re supposed to be on our team dumbass

  • JSDC007


    Read the interview he gave to the NYT. The Norm Coleman response was a tongue in cheek answer to whether he cared that there wasn’t a single Jewish Republican left in the Senate. Can libtards not go the freeper foam-at-the-mouth way? Please.

  • roboturkey

    why do the Republicans still get any attention at all?

    They can’t seat Norm because by all recent accounts he probably lost and we are just waiting on the buckethead Minnesota Supreme Court to confirm it.

    Specter is acting very very O-L-D. Have we ruled out dimensia here?

  • charlesdegoal

    We may be making too much out of this. Specter is a senile cretin, but here’s an interesting comment from a TPM reader:

    In context Specter’s comment is clearly tongue in cheek:

    “With your departure from the Republican Party, there are no more Jewish Republicans in the Senate. Do you care about that?

    Specter: I sure do. There’s still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.”

  • Mustang

    He sold his whore votes on bills in exchange for getting to be senator again. He didn’t sell anything else but the votes.

  • The Huffington Pogue

    [re=308987]DC Hates Me[/re]:

    You’re not the only one who thinks that:

  • Mustang

    [re=308985]facehead[/re]: No. I’m afraid this is more important.

  • Blender

    Coleman is Jewish? With that forehead, I would’ve bet Klingon. Never mind.

  • Lazy Media

    [re=309008]Mustang[/re]: Let me guess: Joe has no children.

  • Min

    Shhhh! That bear’s just about to bite off Arlen’s punkin’ head.

  • Tra

    Libtards are going nuts about how Arlen Specter isn’t saying everything the Democratic leadership wants him to say.

    I think it’s more like the feeling you get when your old college pal unexpectedly shows up broke, smelly and drunk on your doorstep, and invites himself for an indefinite stay with the cheerful air of someone who thinks he’s doing you a favor.

  • DC Hates Me

    [re=309003]The Huffington Pogue[/re]: Nah, I wasn’t targetting Specter but the Senate. A little known fact: Shadow Senators are entirely made of offcast tumor cells.

  • Guppy06

    [re=308961]StephanieInCA[/re]: We’re talking about Reid here; he probably got talked into signing away on some odious senator loan with 85 % interest.

  • chascates

    [re=308980]Bearbloke[/re]: Holy Shit!:
    “If you feel yourself passing away, then notice your strength and vigor returning at an alarming rate, please attempt to restrain yourself to prevent infection and harm to others”

  • Bruno

    [re=309021]Lazy Media[/re]: Joe has as many children as he has Plumbing businesses that net him $250k per year, total book sales and (non-troll) internet followers.

  • cranky

    i think i have idiot-fatigue, iit’s hard for me to be disturbed by anything today. the baptizing of a corpse came the closest, that one kind of made me shiver a little.

  • hobospacejunkie

    The real story is Arlen saying “I didn’t say I would be a loyal Democrat.” That’s gonna play well in his primary. I hope the PA Dems run a real candidate against him so they can use this sound bite to bury his self-serving ass.

  • TimesUp

    Think maybe he got shot with his magic bullet?

  • Tommmcatt

    Arlen Specter is a human?

  • Hawaiiexpat

    I am really in need of a post in which Arlen and Sarah Palin hook up have a disfigured love child.

    Bonus if Joe the Plumber and Michele Bachmann can be written into the scene too….particularly if the words “cougar”, “kumquat” and “flaccid” can all be used in the same sentence.

    Go to it Wonkette peoples.

  • OzoneTom

    [re=309009]Blender[/re]: He had that de-jewifying plastic surgery you know. They were having a special on Klingon that week.

  • lulzmonger

    Ouch! You mean even Coleman’s hubby is telling him to get off the Crazy Train? Damn, that’s one cold woman right there. A man’s gotta have something non-lethal to keep himself busy with until the subpoena arrives, doesn’t he?

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Specter: Liberal Democrat.
    Does that even make sense?
    4 more months to Franken. Anything less would be uncivilized.

  • Makeithurt

    Oh Spectral Being — Thou hast opened thyself for a great stripping of power. Yea, verily, thou shalt be Jr Dem Sen from PA and be kicked off your chairpersonships. Woe to you, Oh Mushmouthed hangdog. Ye shall rue the moment of thy misspeak.
