quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.

Arlen Specter is the man who voted in favor of Bill Clinton during impeachment, voted against Robert Bork for the Supreme Court, voted against school choice for the District of Columbia, endorses an absolutist interpretation of abortion rights. He is bright and he is tough and he belongs elsewhere.

— William F. Buckley, Jr.

Relaxing Arlen quotations

I just love all the music. My grandma was a church organist for 40 years, and she got me into jazz music and great songwriters, Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, all those folks. I can't do it, but I have a profound respect for it.


There's other ways to protect yourself and your family, Arlen.

Wisdom. Prudence. Humility. It's not brave to fight a battle you can't win.

Senator Arlen Specter hasn't really switched parties;

he's simply realized he cannot win the Pennsylvania Republican primary election.

The U.S. Senate already has one Arlen Specter too many.

Johnny Mercer was my father's best friend and became mine as well.

And Harold Arlen, whom I would call Uncle Harry, and Harry Warren: those were ones who I really became close to.


I only noticed this after I had finished the film 'The Bad Batch,' and watched it again a few months later... Arlen, main character, is kind of like a shark because she keeps on moving forward. I do feel that in modern society that still is the best way to survive.

Majestic doesn't appeal to us. We [Americans] like the Grand Canyon better with Clarence and Arlene parked in front of it, smiling.

Matter of fact, the way we got a path, a great friend, Arlen Specter, I convinced him to switch parties. Not a joke. Not a joke. He was the deciding vote.

Against the advice of my wife, I endorsed Arlen Specter. I should have listened to my wife.

Alan Alda and his wife Arlene are two of the most life-affirming people I've ever met. He espoused equal rights for women while producing, writing, acting in and directing M*A*S*H; he used to commute between the set and home because he didn't want to disrupt his kids' schooling.


Some will remember an image of a fire or story or rescue.

Some will carry memories of a face and a voice gone forever. And I will carry this. It is the police shield of a man named George Howard who died at the World Trade Center trying to save others. It was given to me by his mom, Arlene, as a proud memorial to her son. It is my reminder of lives that ended and a task that does not end.

Arlene and I have to get a divorce. She thinks I'm a pervert because I drank our water bed.

I had two cups of coffee, put Eric's jeans in the washer, read a romance for awhile, and studied my brand-new Word of the Day calendar, a Christmas gift from Arlene. My first word of the New Year was 'exsanguinate.' This was probably not a good omen.

Just because one of Arlene's husbands was a murderer is no reason for me to be ugly
