Snarlin’ Arlen is giving Martha (Marsha) Coakley a run for her money in the worst candidate evah contest.
SCROLL FOR UPDATES
The first time Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) slipped up here Tuesday night at the Allegheny County Democratic Committee’s Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, most in the audience pretended not to notice.
But at the end of his remarks when Specter again thanked the “the Allegheny County Republicans” for their endorsement, many couldn’t help but laugh nervously and shoot did-he-really-just-say-that looks at each other.
As amusing as it seemed to some of the Democrats in attendance, mistakes like that could end up costing him his job next Tuesday. It’s not that Specter is so precariously placed that he can’t weather the occasional gaffe, it’s that every little reminder of the 80-year-old’s Republican past chips away at his porcelain base in his new party.
“I think it’s not unusual for anybody to misspeak from time to time,” Specter shrugged to reporters after the dinner. “I’m not a television commentator. I’m not as smooth as you guys.”
No word on whether he called Terry Bradshaw a Patriots fan.
UPDATE: Specter is not having a good 48 hours. He just snipped at Andrea Mitchell for asking why Obama is not coming to Pennsylvania to “help” his campaign.
Via Matt Lewis’ Twitter feed:
“How can you even ask that question seriously, Andrea?” – Specter pushing back at Andrea Mitchell’s q’s about why Obama isn’t coming to PA.
Um, maybe because doesn’t want to be 0-4 when it comes to campaigning for losers?
At least something good happened at Foxboro yesterday.
Don’t worry, Martha. I’m sure Shank will endorse you.
Reminder: Today is Money Bomb day for Scott Brown. If you’ve got an extra $20 bucks (or more – or less) please donate to Scott Brown today. The Ice Queen is getting help from moveon.org and the SEIU thugs so every penny is crucial to help Scott get his message to the people and get the vote out on the 19th.
Perhaps the Beautiful People of Marblehead would prefer a Che flag? This isn’t surprising given that in recent years another Massachusetts town was involved in a similar display of anti-Americanism.

MARBLEHEAD (FOX25, myfoxboston) – The owner of Gravity Fitness in Marblehead says gym members have complained about the American flag hanging inside the gym.
The Fitness club’s owner, 23 year-old Mark Shay, hung the 12 foot long flag from the gym rafters on Friday and had over a dozen complaints by Monday.
Some have complained that the flag blocks gym televisions, while some members have gone as far as to say that the flag is offensive.
One members was quoted to say “It’s like putting a Jesus cross in my face.”
Another member feels the exact opposite and said “This is America. If you don’t like to see the flag you can move somewhere else.”
Shay did move the flag so it would not block the TVs but said now the flag is going to stay right where it is. He also said if the complaining members decide to leave the gym he will just have to live with that.
Marblehead is one town over from where I live. Maybe I’ll join this gym to show my support for Mr. Shay. I’ll wear my lucky W’04 t-shirt to really drive the moonbats nuts. Any other ideas for t-shirts? This could be a lot of fun. BWAAAHAHAHA.
