You gotta say this about Sen. Arlen Specter: The guy's got gumption. That can be a good thing -- when he's bravely battling cancer, to be sure, and sometimes even politically, like a couple of decades ago when he helped save the nation from Justice Robert Bork.
And then there's Specter's jihad against the National Football League -- which is just getting surreal. It's amazing -- and sad, in my opinion -- how closely Specter's agenda matches his largest campaign contributors, Comcast, which is locked in a long feud with the cable giant over the NFL Network, and Comcast's lobbyists. Now that Specter is dropping the Spygate issue, he's going to investigate the league...for something:
Sen. Arlen Specter said he won't bother to ask Congress to pursue the NFL's "Spygate" scandal and plans to look into another sports-related issue: public financing of stadiums.
