Snowe is awful, but as conservatives, our bigger problems are the moderates from red states, wasting a shot to get good people in there. Maine is Maine and Mass is Mass, but having Cornyn from Texas, Graham from SC, McCain from Arizona, McConnell from Kentucky, Burr from NC, etc...THOSE are what kills us.
I agree, and challenging moderates across the board will force other moderates to vote conservative or be thrown out. For two years Orrin Hatch voted in lockstep with Mike Lee. Why? Because his buddy Bob Bennett was thrown out of office. Lindsay Graham has been all tough and conservative lately because he needs to shore himself up. Saxby Chambliss came out for tax increases. Next thing you know, he had potential primary challenges and he’s now retiring. Charlie Summers decided to challenge Olympia Snowe and she retired. Mitch McConnell is all of a sudden standing up to Obama and standing with conservatives (instead of with Obama and against conservatives as he did two years ago).
Every moderate in every state needs to be challenged, to scare the hell out of the rest of them. Because we ARE taking note of your votes. In the mean time, the democrats will have a harder time getting “bipartisan” cover for their bills.
