The self-aggrandizing hypocrisy of Olympia Snowe
As you may have heard, Republican Senator Olympia Snowe is retiring.
Sen. Snowe: "frustrating... that atmosphere of polarization and 'my way or the highway' ideologies has become pervasive" in politics.
-- Steve Brusk (@stevebruskCNN)
But what is the self-righteous, process-paralyzing, power-wielding, Republican-leaning "centrism" of Snowe, Collins, Nelson, Lieberman, Landrieu et al. if not a "my way or the highway" ideology and general approach to politics?
Besides, as Zandar reminds us:
Weep not for the Snowe Queen, because when it counted, she was a GOP whackaloon through and through.
