Cheri Jacobus quotes Rick Santorum claiming to quote Arlen Specter exposing himself as an unprincipled hack, which is fine as far as it goes, but then she lays down a challenge...
So, unless Democrats want to go so far as calling Santorum a liar, this is pretty much an open-and-shut case.OK, I'll bite. Rick Santorum is a liar. It's required of Republicans, after all. He may or may not be lying this time, but he's a liar. Doesn't really seem like much of a stretch.
That doesn't mean, of course, that Specter's not an unprincipled hack (personally, I figure he's a partially principled hack, like the great majority of his colleagues regardless of party), but that's not really the problem for Ms. Jacobus or Mr. Santorum. Their problem is that now Arlen's our unprincipled hack.
