Arlen Specter: Screw You Guys, I'm Going Home?

Courtesy of El Rushbo, no less:
Specter can blame Operation Chaos for that development. In 2008, over 150,000 Pennsylvania Republicans switched to the Democratic primary to vote for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama. Most of those were centrists and moderates, and most of them haven’t switched back. If they stay out, they won’t be able to participate in the closed Pennsylvania primaries in 2010. Specter’s close shave in 2004 would almost certainly transform into a lopsided defeat under those circumstances, especially with his vote on Porkulus.
Here's Specter slaying at the Improv:

MORE: Just to be a bit clearer, I'm being a bit facetious by attributing the mass defections of Penn Republicans to Limbaugh. If they left to register as Dems for the 2007 presidential primary and are staying Dems today, then they probably were moderates -- not exactly the kind of people listen to Rush, to say nothing of doing what he says.
