Profiles in Discouragement

I had a few sharp words with The Lobbyist this morning, about Olympia Snowe, whom she said is good on The Lobbyist's issues, stands up for abortion rights, and some other things. "Then why is she a Republican?" I wondered. Olympia goose-stepped to Karl Rove's orders for eight years voting consistently for some of the worst shit ever based in legislation, worst appointees ever to befoul their offices. And she still identifies with the gang that includes the Tea Party, which, despite claims to the contrary is owned and operated by the GOP. So it doesn't really matter if her heart's in the right place on a few small things.

These days even the Democrats are the moral equivalent of Klansmen or Stasi. What a commited Republican has for a conscience I can't imagine.

Don't let Olympia give you a Snowe job.
