First, Republican Senator Arlen Specter fears losing votes from a state becoming more and more liberal, so he switches to the Democratic Party.
Then, leading up to this year's Democratic primary elections in Pennsylvania, Specter fears losing to Joe Sestak.
Finally, Specter loses. I guess his master plan backfired...
Oh, and I promised to identify the senators in last week's cartoon (for anyone who was wondering).
Magician with top hat and rabbit: Senator Harry Reid
Juggling clown: Senator Patrick Leahy
On the high wire: Senator Orrin Hatch
