One moderate Republican apparently wasn’t enough.
Conservative host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday he isn’t sorry to see Arlen Specter leave the GOP â€” and that many Republicans wish the Pennsylvania senator would take a few others with him when he goes.

“â€¦..It’s ultimately good. You’re weeding out people who aren’t really Republicans,” he said.
Well, I’m sure Olympia Snowe is on his list now too.
Nevermind that moderate Republicans represent true Republican ideals instead of the far right strain that Limbaugh subscribes to and has pushed the past 30 years.
