Will Specter get a callback?
Which party is supposed to be intolerant of abortion views that are not in line with the party platform? Pro-choice Senator Arlen Specter of PA is really getting the squeeze from anti-choice fundamentalists in his cult party:

Sen. Arlen Specter (news, bio, voting record) must prove to his Republican colleagues that he is the right man to head the Senate Judiciary Committee (news -web sites) in the next Congress, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Sunday.

Specter, R-Pa., will make his case to GOP colleagues this week when Congress returns for a postelection session.

How is he supposed to "prove" it? Should he deliver a baby on the Senate floor? The man's been approving pro-lifers his entire career, and all he said was that the Christian Coalition Republican leadership in the Senate would have a tough time ramming pro-life absolutists through the Senate. In other words, he was telling the truth. And we all know where that gets you in Bushworld.
