Arlen Specter should not chair the Senate Judiciary Committee

Senator Arlen Specter, a Leftist from Pennsylvania, is in line to be chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The GOP should pass over Specter and select someone else. Specter does not believe in the core values of the Republican Party, core values that helped President Bush win re-election. While some Republicans would argue that we should show tolerance for "moderates" in the party, I offer this as a refutation of any argument that Republicans should tolerate Specter.

Tolerating "moderates" in the GOP is one thing. Tolerating "moderates" who openly support Democrats is another. Arlen Specter = Jerry Bales.
