You Can Tell People Hate Democrats Because More Senators Are Becoming Democrats

From Oklahoma's senior Senator Jim Inhofe:

There is no evidence more visible that the American people are already rebelling against the far-left agenda than Senator Arlen Specter switching parties to become a Democrat. He did this for one reason, and that is his advisers told him he couldn’t retain his Senate seat as a Republican. In other words, the same people who supported Senator Specter six years ago have soundly rejected him today.

What? A moderate Republican shifts leftward and this is an indication that his constituency has shifted rightward? Arlen Specter switched parties because the formerly conservative moderates are now voting Democrats into office, leaving behind a Republican party out of touch with Pennsylvania values.

Speaking of values, this quote was found in a NY Times opinion-almalgamator on the subject of gays serving openly in the military. Inhofe is one of several contributors to confuse being openly gay with having sex in front of everyone non-stop.
