Conventional Wisdom and Sen. Specter

The conventional wisdom says not much changed in voting patterns in 2004 vs 2000. The Weekly Standard says otherwise! Comparing the percentage of the vote for the left Gore-Nader vs Kerry-Nader, shows the left lost across the country in 2004, even in

The Hill has a story that says the controversy over Sen. Specter is mushrooming. Interesting note at the bottom of the article:
...Specter’s son is a prominent Philadelphia-based trial lawyer.

That has raised the suspicions of several tort-reform proponents, who said momentum on the issue could be hampered if Specter presided over the committee of primary jurisdiction.

Speaking of Specter, CNSNews has this about Specter of 40 years ago:
The 40-Year-Old Theory That Continues to Haunt

Specter was a counsel for the Warren Commission in 1964, investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He developed the so-called “single bullet” theory, which held that one of the bullets fired from the rifle of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald penetrated Kennedy’s upper body, changed direction, pierced the president’s neck, changed direction again, hit Texas Gov. John Connally, seated in front of the president, in the armpit, exited Connally’s torso, went through the governor’s wrist, changed direction again and finally lodged itself in Connally’s thigh. In November of last year, Specter told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review that he still believes in the single bullet theory, but it continues to be ridiculed by people who believe there was more than one gunman the day Kennedy was killed.

Thomas Sowell doesn't mince words:
Senator Specter is also one of those people who is often wrong but never in doubt. He has mangled the meaning of such basic concepts as "judicial activism" and "original intent." It would be a tragedy for him to become chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he could mangle nominees and in the process mangle the Constitution of the United States.
