Nixon has followed the conversion of Arlen Specter from a liberal Republican to a Moderate Democrat, well, really, that is the same thing, with no sense of surprise. "If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a f'n duck".
Specter was faced with losing the Republican Primary and decided political survival called for a shift to the Democratic Party. Really, all that changed is now there is a D after his name instead of a R.
Today, Arlen claims that cancer would not have killed Jack Kemp if the Republicans hadn't stifled research into curing cancer. This is a lie. Arlen Specter is a piece of feces. Just another piece of proof for Nixon's readers.
