    No, it's because she's actually DONE A FREAKING JOB FOR LONGER THAN 3 YEARS. She knows something about the world. She's a credible person.

    Is stupidity actually rewarded in the Republican party these days?

    He probably should quit though, that's the point.

    Aren't as intelligent to pretend they're something they're not? That doesn't make them intelligent. It makes them phonies.

    it's the mainstay of both parties these days. We haven't had anything intelligent come out of government in a long long time.

    Snowe is the only person I listed whose conservative credentials can even be called into question, so of course, that's where y'all are going to focus.

    How about Tancredo? He's about sixty MILLION times more credible than Palin. So is Fred Thompson, for that matter. Oline Walker has been an outstanding governor.

    How about John Huntsman? He would be better than Palin.

    That's how elections are won, after all.

    Snowe is a hawk and a fiscal conservative. Is that insufficient for you?

    Snowe voted for gun control and against tax cuts. She also supports the Stealfromus bill.

    Conservative my butt!

    I don't know many republicans that support Olympia Snowe. She's been elected in a very liberal state. A state that isn't liberal because it's avante guard. Maine is liberal because it's uneducated north of Portland.

    There is a reason why the Republican party used to be known as the "big tent." There was a place for people along a range of conservative interests.

    What issues do you now believe should be held up as the litmus test for "real" (tm) REpublicans?

    Abortion? Gay Rights?

    A woman who is a hawkish fiscal conservative IS in fact conservative. It could be argued that her positions on abortion and gay marriage are in fact libertarian (keeping government out of the people's personal lives).

    Do you remember when conservative meant "supporter of small government and u.S. interests around the world"?

    I'm focusing on Snowe because she's my senator, and she sucks.

    She voted against the tax cuts of 2003 because they were fiscally irresponsible. I wish more had, we wouldn't be in this situation of terrible overwelming federal debt.

    Cutting taxes in the middle of a war is perhaps the most irresponsible act I can think of.
