Breaking Free: My Life with Dissociative Identity Disorder

Breaking Free

This book is the touching story of Arlen Specter, a United States Senator who suffered from Multiple Personality Disorder. Though Arlen was a Republican, you would have never known it from his voting record. You see, Arlen's other personality was a liberal Democrat. And while getting through the day could be hard for the average person suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder, imagine how hard it is for a person in the spotlight like Arlen.

It is true that all of the odds were against the guy, yet he overcame. Time and time again, Arlen's Republican personality tried to fight it's way to the surface, but Mr. Specter bravely beat him back into the furthest recesses of his dark and tortured brain. As the years went by, Arlen became stronger, and less and less was seen of his Republican counterpart.

This is an encouraging story of how you too can beat the odds and torture an entire population into a head scratching bewildered stupor.  Perhaps you are suffering from MPD, and you don't like the personality that has surfaced. If so, then lean on the strength of Arlen, stand up and proudly proclaim "I have no idea who the heck I am, but vote for me anyway".

You will laugh with Arlen as he tries to outlaw switching parties mid stream, and then does so himself. You will be proud of him as he reaches across the isle to work with himself. When the people wanted Democrats, he said "I'm your guy". When they wanted Republicans, he said "I'm that guy too". And when they demanded bu partisainship, who better to fulfill the demand than Mr. Demorepublicrat himself? 

Will Republicans forgive Arlen for switching and vote for him in 2010? Will Democrats find his switch to be enough to forgive him for switching the last time? Will Arlen go for the trifecta and switch one more time to become the first ever Demorepublicratican? Will Spector write a sequel called "Breaking Free of The Stuff That I Broke Free For In The First Place"? All of these questians and more are answered in this classic. 



Hot off the press.

  • Watered Down Travel Ban

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

  • Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
