Former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter (D) on Wednesday compared Mitt Romney to an actress in pornographic films because he had shifted position so often throughout his political career.

“The Republican Party has moved so far to the right, you can’t recognize Mitt Romney,” Specter told MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. “What Mitt Romney will appear in October?”

“Mitt Romney has changed positions more often than a pornographic movie queen,” he added.

Specter, who before he switched parties in 2009 had supported Rick Santorum’s Senate bid, also believes that also believes that his former colleague and current presidential candidate is now too extreme.

“If you think women have no place in the workforce, if you’re against contraception, if you think John Kennedy’s speech in Houston separating church and state was wrong, you are too far out of the mainstream to be president,” he explained.

Specter’s latest book, Life Among Cannibals, contends that extremists — like the tea partiers that forced him out of the Senate — are destroying the political system.
