The thought of going down in flames must be too much for Arlen Specter perhaps that is why he was so crotchety today.
Glenn Thrush over at Politico states the obvious:
Bachmann is hardly a beloved figure in Democratic circles. But how many liberal women, whom Specter badly needs to defeat front-running Pat Toomey, would appreciate being told to "act like a lady" by a male debate partner?
If anyone should act like a lady, it is Specter himself, because politically speaking the man has no balls. Michele Bachmann has a bigger set than he does. She doesn’t flip flop on issues and she certainly doesn’t worry about what the politically proper thing to do is.
