    Any and all wieners are eligible [except PF wieners of course :uhh: ].

    I nominate:

    Sen. Arlen Specter; for redefining "moderate" to mean spineless and wishy-washy.

    And though my heart goes out to all involved, I have to nominate the county coroner who identified the wrong girl as dead in an auto accident.

    So uhm... can we see the pictures of the bodies the coroner recieved so that we can make the same judgement you did?

    Can you source this? It doesn't sound like Arlen at all. He's a moderate himself, for that matter.

    I don't think the NY times is going to report "leading congressmen redefines 'moderate'".... so i think you'll have some problems finding a source

    My comments about Specter covers an array of sins, not the least of which was to try to support changing the Constitution in order to get Arnold S. elected President.

    His backstepping on issues of the government spying on citizens is his latest offense.

    Btw Pengwuin man, I too hated linear algebra until about the last couple of weeks of the quarter. How are you doing... or do we need to give you a Golden Wiener?

    You're mixed up on your senators. Arlen is the most vocal Republican critic of the NSA scandal, perhaps even the most vocal critic from either party (admit it, the Democrats are no louder than purring kittens):

    I don't have anyone mixed up. Note that tough talk isn't doing anything.

    Until today he was washing out, but it seems that Specter if finally doing something - today's letter to the WH.

    He still supported changing the Constitution for Arnold though...

    Specter is the guy I rest the shattered remains of my hopes on.

    As for this:
    ...you don't mean that last bit, do you?

    I nominate O'Reilly. But I think he'd skip on grounds of insanity.

    Yes, he was right up front. I was shocked!!!

    Ayeeeee, I just checked and it was Hatch, not Specter. I was wrong about that...maybe there is hope...
