You know, it’s one thing for far Left bloggers to go bananas and blame the Republican Party for killing people because they opposed increased federal spending on principle — as the dextrosphere did last week over swine flu funding in the porkulus.

Arlen Specter, Turncoat-Pennsylvania, takes it to a whole ‘nother level — blaming Republicans for not adopting his research spending priorities and actually exploiting Jack Kemp’s death from cancer to take a shot at fiscal conservatives.

Reason number 999,769 we are glad Specter has taken off the elephant costume and made his conversion to Ass-dom official:

Ed Morrissey debunks Specter’s lie:

During Republican control of Congress, federal spending on health research and regulation increased 46% after inflation, from $49 billion a year to $72 billion a year, or about 7% increase each year. That’s almost the same rate of increase as Defense spending got in the same period (48%), when we actually had a real war on our hands, and not a political contrivance for excusing federal spending.

And Specter wonders why he can’t get within 20 points of Pat Toomey in a primary race?
