Former Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter took the stage at the Helium Club in Philadelphia last night. The 81-year old Specter joked that having a second career as a comedian is a natural, given his time in Congress.

"I've been in the Senate for 30 years, so I'm used to comedy. Will Rogers said when Congress passes a law it becomes a joke and Congress tells a joke it becomes a law - and I thought I'd tell some of the stories about some of my colleagues Bill Clinton, Ed Rendell and Herman Cain and Chris Christie and some other people," said Specter.

Here's an example of specter's comedy: he said he didn't vote to impeach Bill Clinton despite the 'body' of evidence.
