Arlen Specter Is Confused About Which Party Supports Him

I guess after being a Republican for 45 years before switching parties to stay in office, old habits are hard to break.

As I noted in my story today, Sen. Arlen Specter opened and closed his remarks at the Allegheny County Democratic Committee's Jefferson-Jackson dinner last night by thanking them for their support.

Only he referred to them as Allegheny County Republicans.

You gotta know the Allegheny County Democratic Committee just loves being called Republicans. Nor should you be surprised that the Sestak campaign couldn't wait to get that audio out to the public.
