The Corner on Specter's Pandering.

Kathryn J. Lopeze notes thusly:

Playing both sides of the aisle has worked wonders for the chairman, clearly. Read (do) Byron's piece today on the weird MoveOn rally yesterday:
'Boxer expressed a certain fundamental lack of respect for the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter. Referring to Leahy, who is the ranking Democrat on the committee, Boxer said, "I call him my chairman of the Judiciary Committee, because I don't recognize anyone else" - a remark that seemed to speak volumes about the effectiveness of Specter's efforts to reach out to Democrats.'

Appeasement doesn't work with the Dems either. Specter should never have been allowed to chair that committee!
