The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto refers to Pennsylvania's least-favored U.S. senator as "Arlen Specter (R2D2, Pa.)." Another gem: Specter "leans left but is steadfast in defense of whatever he finds expedient for as long as he finds it expedient." Oh, OK, if you insist -- one more: "In this age of partisan polarization, Republicans and Democrats found something on which they could agree: Arlen Specter does not belong in the Senate." ... Claimeth the headline in The Hill newspaper the morning after tea party-backed Christine O'Donnell defeated Rep. Mike Castle for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Delaware: "Tea Party win strikes blow to GOP hopes of winning Senate in November." Ah, how quickly the establishment's spinners forget that the kettle's on the boil and that their tootsies (if not more) are about to be boiled in their own pudding. ... The White House denies it but French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy says Michelle Obama told her that being America's first lady is "hell." "I can't stand it!" she supposedly said, reports London's Daily Mail. Hey, we're sure voters will be happy to ease Mrs. O's pain in 2012.
