Republican Watch
Ever the enabler:
Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), Judiciary’s senior Republican, at first declined to reveal his vote, later adding that he abstained by remaining silent. Specter urged Democrats to negotiate with President Bush, whose Tuesday television address on the prosecutors was characterized as a proposal by the lawmaker.
No surprise. I guess the real surprise is that Specter actually said what his vote was .... an abstention. Specter is also ready to announce he's seeking re-election. The Dems are being much nicer than the GOP majority would have ever been by allowing a voice vote on the matter.

The Republican watch continues!
