Whats that on the horizon?

Starting the week off right.

MORNING LINKS — again, blogging will be light this week, due both to work and to hardware problems

ITEM: If there’s any question whether the departure of Sen. Arlen Specter (ID-Ego) from the Republican Party is a good thing, he settled it this weekend:

Mr. Specter continued: “If  [the Republicans] had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.”

Mr. Kemp died Saturday of cancer. He had been the running mate of 1996 Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole.

The sheer lack of tact and taste of this remark — with Jack Kemp less than 24 hours dead and his wife and children still grieving — shows what a true classless act Sen. Specter really is.

Maybe more tomorrow.  ..bruce w..
