Talk about your great bumper stickers, huh? Here’s one Pennsylvania Democrat’s welcome to her party’s newest senator:

Pam Janvey, a Democratic committeewoman from Bucks County, found Specter’s presence at the gathering more than a little odd. “Am I in a dream?” she asked.

Janvey said that Specter hit all the right notes in his speech on Saturday and that although she had worked to defeat Specter in the past and never voted for him, she would back him this time around.

“Even when I have worked against Arlen over the years,” Janvey said, “I never felt the kind of fear that I did when I worked against Santorum…”

Unfortunately Specter is a crazy and as Republican as Mary Landrieu, Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln and the other "blue dog" jerks he now can pal around with. I wouldn't be surprised if the switcheroo wasn't organized by Rahm Emanuel to prevent another progressive from being elected to the Senate. Those damn people who insist on Constitutional government are a pain in the butt for Rahm.

The local story has Sestak hustling all weekend rather than sipping coffee in a corner, and has George supporting Arlen--as he and the unions in general have while Arlen's been R.

Chris Bowers's DFH take: http://openleft.com/diary/13661/specter-to-dems-remember-when-i-jilted-you-back-in-the-1960s (or http://snurl.com/jnhdb).

Those in the smoke-filled rooms love Arlen; those on the street don't.
