  •  Snowe always did her real job. (1+ / 0-)

    Her real job was to be the patrician face that made the old style Republicans feel comfortable with the Party despite the extremes that were occurring under the Religious Right.

    She was a beard for all the racists and sexists  and homophobes in her party, enabling all of it.

    Plus, she loved being courted and wooed by the Democrats for her vote, in the same way that wealthy people who give to charities expect to be wined and dined and treated like aging princesses. And she loved, in the dramatic end, disappointing them once more. A well practiced economic royalist.

    She was Reagan in pearls.
