Summing Up on Specter

It appears clear that Arlen Specter will win his chairmanship on the Judiciary Committee. Apparently, the GOP leadership has his solemn promise not to steer us into ditch (although the cynic in me wonders what promises the GOP leadership made to Specter?).

This minor affray has revealed a deep division in the Party between those who expect action on the pro-life platform and those who think any such activity is too politically risky to undertake.

I'll subside on this issue, pending future events, with two Laws of Republican politics for consideration:

1. The GOP will never be anything better than first-alternate for pro-choice voters.

2. Pro-choice voters can only be wooed at the expense of pro-life voters.
