The death of a RINO has already been duly noted, if not exactly mourned. In their own remembrance of Snarlin’ Arlen, Victory Girls remind us of the moment at a 2009 town-hall meeting when the Vicious Backstabbing Crapweasel learned he had “awakened a sleeping giant”:
“This is about the systematic dismantling of this country. I am only 35 years old. I have never been interested in politics. You have awakened a sleeping giant. We are tired of this. This is why everybody in this room is so ticked off. I don’t want this country turning into Russia, turning into a socialized country.”
— Katy Abram, Lebanon, Pa., Aug. 11, 2009
Here is her subsequent appearance on Sean Hannity’s show:
Arlen Specter was a powerful Republican senator, and Katy Abram was just a mom concerned about her children’s future in a nation whose basic freedoms Specter was helping to destroy. The contest between them, by all normal political logic, was a mismatch that Specter should have easily won. How was it that this Pennsylvania mom prevailed, and the mighty Specter was defeated? Speaking of giants . . .
“Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”
— I Samuel 17:45 (KJV)
Pride goeth before a fall, and Specter’s overbearing arrogance caused his own undoing. Katy Abrams is classy in her own remembrance:
My thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends. Despite his political world he was a father and husband who was dearly loved. I know he rests in the hands of God. Let him rest in peace.
As for me I will continue to fight all that he represented in the political realm. I thank him for helping awaken the sleeping giant. He played a key role in waking the citizenry of this nation to a government that no longer listened and continued their wrecklessness.
