I believe that my duty is to follow my conscience and vote what I think is in the best interest of the country, and the political risks will have to abide.
Sen. Arlen Specter • On his decision to switch parties and support the Affordable Care Act, a switch he made in 2009 amidst controversy. The change cost him another term in the Senate — he lost a challenge to Rep. Joe Sestak in 2010, and Sestak lost to Pat Toomey in the general election. Specter managed to become the longest-serving senator in Pennsylvania history despite suffering numerous health problems — including two benign brain tumors in the 1990s, and two separate bouts of Hodgkin’s disease in the 2000s. Specter died of complications from non-Hodgkins lymphoma on Sunday.

Smart read of the morning: Author Kevin Baker, writing for The New York Times, makes a broad claim that the GOP’s biggest problem is that they’re trying to build their base without the city, despite their growing influence on American culture. “In short,” he writes, “they promise to rip and tear at the immensely complex fabric of city life while sneering at the entire ‘urban vision of dense housing and government transit.’ There is a terrible arrogance here that has ramifications well beyond the Republicans’ electoral prospects.” Now, whether you agree with that sentiment, this article is nonetheless a pretty great read, backed up by decades of historic context (the image above harkening back to “Ford to City: Drop Dead”). Great food for thought.

Mitt Romney Adopts New ‘Ronnie Ferocious’ Persona For Debates

“You know what? I’ll ask the first question,” the former Massachusetts governor said before putting out his cigarette on his forearm and flicking the butt at Lehrer. “What kind of little shit show do we have here this evening, folks? That’s my question. Because from where I’m standing, seems like a big ol’ shit show. And Lehrer, shut your fat mouth when Ronnie Ferocious is talking, or I’ll pound your goddamn face in.”

Mitt looks like he’s gnashing his teeth listening to Obama, like a young child forced to stay quiet while he’s at church.
