Say it Ain’t Snowe

I guess the death of the moderate Republican truly comes in the night on little cat’s feet.

Maine Senator (and the person for whom I cast my first ever vote) Olympia Snowe unexpectedly announced today that she will not be seeking reelection.  I presume navigating between the Scylia and Charbdis of her state’s increasingly leftward tilt and her party’s increasingly rightward bent proved too daunting.  I hope this does not forebode a similar decision by Susan Collins in 2014.
