Arlen Specter and the Miracle Bullet Theory comes to Obama’s Democratic Party

By Kevin Stoda, a Kansan in exile

As many of my readers know, I--just like Arlen Specter (U.S. Senator, PA) and former Senator Bob Dole--, am a graduate of a Kansas high school.  We are the Sunflower state and examples of very well educated persons interested in public service in a state that has lost its way politically for over half a century.

That is, Kansas is a place that has tried to run and hide from its progressive past for quite some time.  Frank Thomas wrote a great book, WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS?, on the hidden-progressive tradition in Kansas—a state that should be blue but which has been red since before I was born.

Russell, Kansas’ two native sons Bob Dole and Arlen Specter, used to be little Russell High School’s gifts to the Republican dominated Senate.

Now Dole is long retired and Specter has now jumped to the Democratic party.

That’s right the man whose autobiography is named NEVER GIVE IN has jumped from the sinking Republican ship to the Democratic party after being on the Republican side of the isle for 50 years in Washington, D. C.
