    Not sure if my comment should be left to the politics thread, but Specter was of a moderate Republican breed that hardly even exists anymore. RIP.

    Too easy to try to impersonate. ;D

    Seriously, I'm surprised he lasted this long. Seems like the man had been in poor health for years. RIP.

    It was already on the politics thread where it should be. His political career died years ago.

    Yeah, well I avoid that thread like the plague. IMHO, Ruckus posting here was just fine.

    I don't blame you. They don't play fairly on that thread.

    Did not know both Arlen Specter and Robert Dole were from the same Kansas town. Thanks.

    Pretty small odds two such influencial men in American politics would hail from there.
