Arlen Specter has a personality disorder...

… and that disorder is that he wants to remain in the Senate, where he has served for twenty-nine years, at the age of 79. I don’t care about his party or his ideology (zzzzz…), whatever it is. I care about his narcissistic inability to move on. Enough already!

Specter’s self-indulgent and obviously self-interested change of parties is yet another argument for term limits.

What this country needs now is a shake up in leadership – not more of the same old same old – no matter their party. Having a Congress filled with people who spend a third of their lives (or more) on Capital Hill is a surefire prescription for lack of any connection to the people they are serving, not to mention any imagination or originality.
