Fox News producer Trish Turner rode the Senate subway to the Capitol yesterday with Senator Orrin Hatch.  Across from them was Arlen Specter.  Here's what transcribed, as reported by Turner:

Specter to Hatch: So - you better watch out, Orrin, Toomey's coming to get you next.

Hatch: What's that?

Specter: That Club for Growth is going to be coming for you next just like they did me.

Hatch: Man - they really savaged Bob. But they're after Republicans.

Specter: Well, they got me.

Hatch: It's vicious out there.

Specter thinking, pauses - looks at me, smiling wryly: Well, you've got the big scoop now don't you?

Gulp. Did I ever. As "fly on the wall" moments go, that one was pretty darn decent.
