As Politico reports, Senate Democrats voted en masse to strip Arlen Specter of his seniority, leaving a dejected Specter to wonder what happened to the deal he claimed he had with Harry Reid. I honestly don't know what Specter was thinking. He switched sides admitting that he'd done so only because he couldn't win the 2010 Republican primary. Then he proclaimed that he'd leapfrog all the real Democrats in seniority while acting and talking like a died-in-the-wool Republican. Where did he think he was going with that?
