I never count my fetuses before they are viable

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sen. Arlen Specter, a Republican defender of abortion rights, made progress on Tuesday in his embattled bid to head the committee that reviews judicial nominations, party aides said.

Specter emerged from a closed-door meeting with Senate Republican leaders with a smile but no prediction on whether he will become Judiciary Committee chairman -- though a handful of Republican lawmakers have publicly voiced support in recent days and have said they expect him to get it.

"I never count any chickens before they hatch," Specter, 74, of Pennsylvania, said after the meeting in the office of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican.

It's funny, ya know... hearing such an expression from such a baby-killing RINO as Specter. Get it? Counting chickens before they hatch? Babies before they get my drift.

Yes, the looming specter of Specter is upon us, my fellow Pro-Life bloggers...

And for you activist-minded conservatives:

Stop Specter NOW!

Not Specter
