Senators Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Chuck Hagel (R-NB) have decided to form the “Yes we’re still Republicans, but at least we admit our party is a bunch of wienies” faction of the Republican Party, the two announced on FOX News Sunday over the weekend. “Yes it’s a long, not very catchy name,” said Hagel.  “The point is: we’re not like (former Republican Vermont Senator) Jeffords.  We’re not leaving the party. We want to start change from within. At least that’s how we’re rationalizing it.”
“Yes, we ignore the constitution, spy on people,” Specter said, “and Chuck legitimately raises the point of misconducting this mission in Iraq. But we’re a big tent.  Thwarting the raising of taxes is a basic core value.  There are certain principles you must never, ever compromise.”
