try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

Specter's been his own man for decades, leaning more and more towards moderate-liberal. I always had to remind myself that he was a Republican!

He seems to be more independent than Democrat, though, so sure, he's doing it for expediency. But like you said, he's not a Republican pretending he's not, he's an independent making a choice. And that's okay with me. I really do like him, anyway, BECAUSE he has that independent streak. He's almost in the same league with my hero Lincoln Chafee, although I think Chafee is ideologically more of a Democrat than Specter. I think he didn't become one because of a lot of reasons, one being that his late father (an old-school GOP guy whom I also love) would roll over in his grave.
