I used to write more about politics. Ever since the election, I've needed a break. I still follow stuff, but not with the intensity I had pre-election.
I am kind of excited about this Arlen Spector defection. Not that I think it's going to have a huge impact. At least it will force republicans to continuously answer questions about why they suck so bad for a few news cycles. It would be so cool if Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, the two moderate republicans from Maine, followed suit. I wonder if people within the republican party have figured out how they would respond to some sort of mass exodus.
I can only imagine the sort of behind-the-scenes political gamesmanship that went on to make this switch happen.
