Arlen Specter and Laura Ingraham

(Transcript/ Jeff Poor, NewsBusters)

LAURA INGRAHAM: Is it nice to be wined and dined at the White House? And, you're treated pretty well when you're a Republican bucking other Republicans, right Senator?

SEN. ARLEN SPECTER: Now let's get off it Laura. I'm not drinking any wine at the White House and I don't dine at the White House. If the president wants to talk to me - I talk to him and I make my own independent judgment. Don't give me the wine and dine baloney young lady.

Specter didn't like that. He appears to have taken Ingraham's comments as an insult.

I don't know why. It's a legitimate question. Being wined and dined is nice. Of course, Specter was courted. He's not kidding anyone.

Ingraham didn't insult Specter. She stated the obvious.

And nothing can change the fact that Specter voted with the Dems for pork and entitlements and socialist programs.

How cavalier of Senator Specter to use the phrase "young lady" for THE OBVIOUS.

The problem with Arlen is he thinks highway and road work are private sector jobs, they are NOT....they are high wage union jobs that are not at all anything close to small buisiness private sector jobs.
