Arlen Specter and "The Magic Bullet"
Washington D.C and the cable T.V. news-models are abuzz about the defection of Senator Arlen Specter from the Republicans to The Democratic Party. Potentially, this move may give the Dems the sixty votes they need in the Senate to push legislation through unobstructed.
Senator Arlen Specter
What some people may not know, is that Specter is The author of "The Magic Bullet Theory". After the assassination of President Kennedy, Specter was council for the Warren Commission, widely recognized as the instrument of cover-up in the conspiracy to Kill Kennedy. In order for Lee Harvey Oswald to be framed as "The Lone Gunman", Specter devised the theory that one undamaged bullet went through Kennedy, changed directions, exited and entered Governor John Connally, causing multiple wounds in each man. This theory rejects the obvious scenario that there were multiple shooters in a trianglulated fire pattern. Classic military-style ambush.
Trajectory of Magic Bullet
The bullet they claim that did all the damage mysteriously ended up on a hospital gurney in pristine, undamaged condition. Governor Connally years later died with more lead in his leg than is missing from the bullet!
Specter is reported to have coerced a witness to the Kennedy assassination, Jean Hill:
He kept trying to get me to change my story, particularly regarding the number of shots. He said I had been told how many shots there were and I figured he was talking about what the Secret Service told me right after the assassination. His inflection and attitude was that I knew what I was supposed to be saying, why wouldn't I just say it. I asked him, 'Look, do you want the truth or just what you want me to say?' He said he wanted the truth, so I said, 'The truth is that I heard between four and six shots.' I told him, 'I'm not going to lie for you.' So he starts talking off the record. He told me about my life, my family, and even mentioned that my marriage was in trouble. I said, 'What's the point of interviewing me if you already know everything about me?' He got angrier and finally told me, 'Look, we can even make you look as crazy as Marguerite Oswald [Lee Oswald's mother] and everybody knows how crazy she is. We could have you put in a mental institution if you don't cooperate with us.' I knew he was trying to intimidate me.... SOURCE

So perhaps the old conspirator has had a new lease on life, he just beat cancer. Perhaps, like conservative Barry Goldwater, he had a death-bed conversion away from Republican ideals. I have my doubts.
Call me cynical, but after Kennedy, his brother Bobby, Martin Luther King, Watergate, Iran-Contra, the savings and loan scandal of the eighties, nonexistent Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, torture, NSA spying on Americans and the current second Republican Great Depression, I just don't trust the Bastards...
