Fred Barnes on Specter's defection.
Bipartisanship you can believe in: 53 senators--all Democrats--vote for Obama's budget; 43 senators--including Democrats Bayh, Byrd, Nelson, and Specter--vote against it.
House passes "hate crimes" law.
Watch the entire Cliff May v. Jon Stewart debate on interrogations here.
Another Specter quote to add to the file:
"The only check and balance in America today are the 41 Republican Senators who can talk and filibuster. Otherwise, the White House, the House of Representatives [will] be a streamroller."
"If there's a Democrat in my place, then they'll have anything they want," Specter continued, speaking of the Dems. "It will be a bulldozer."
