Even though this helps b. Hussein, good friggin' riddance.
UPDATE: Of course, Sphincter, as always, said his decision wasn't about party. Sure it wasn't, Arlen. And you're not an assclown of the highest order.
UPDATE II: Naturally, we should remember how Sphincter, in his own words, was so gung-ho to help the Maine RINOs, Collins and Snow, jump sides so b. Hussein could ram Porkulus down our throats.
Or you can just read what Sphincter had to say in this here playground with his "guest post."
And, just so we have it down in data and XML, here at ye ole scatter-brained ADHD grounds, Sphincter went on record in March with The Hill, on how it was just SOOOOOOO IMPORTANT!!! for him to be a stand-up guy and stick with the Republicans in the Senate:
"I’m staying a Republican because I think I have a more important role to play there,” he said. “I think the United States very desperately needs a two-party system. … And I’m afraid that we’re becoming a one-party system, with Republicans becoming just a regional party."Gee...what's changed in a month? (Besides Pat Toomey whipping up the conservative base back in Pennsylvania into licking their chops over eating you alive in next spring's primary...if you were running against him as a Pubbie....)
Did O'Bugger promise you a rose garden?
UPDATE III: O'Bugger MUST have made a promise the size of Mount Rushmore (future site of O'Bugger's mug, unfortunately) because moldy old Sphincter distinctly proposed a ban on party switching not long ago.
