Specter of Hope

This (See It Now,) is undoubtedly good news for the "laws not men," crowd, but keep in mind that Specter's whole stock in trade is to get pissed off about something GWB did and make a bunch of libertarian noise, but to then sort of slink away, and a few weeks later we learn that "a compromise has been reached," which compromise basically maintains the King George status quo, (e.g. torture, domestic spying, CIA leak, etc.)

But maybe Ol' Arlen means it this time. How bad can a guy be if he's named for the hometown of Hank and Bobby Hill?
