Former Sen. Arlen Specter’s new memoir, “Life Among Cannibals,” recounts his party switch, votes for President Obama’s stimulus package and the health care plan.
But it’s not just about politics.
For example, in one steamy passage on page 156, he recalls riding on Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) campaign bus in 2008 with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
“She was a total charmer, very friendly,” Specter writes. “The few things she said were intelligent.” He doesn’t mention what they were, maybe because he was distracted.
“We were sitting virtually knee to knee in the cramped bus,” he writes. ”She radiated sensuality. Her skirt rode above her knees — not exactly short, but close.”
Sheesh. It’s one thing to think it. To say it to the Washington Post is a little demented, don’t you think?
