I Heart Olympia Snowe!

Who says liberals can't like Republicans? If I lived in Maine, I'd be proud to vote for Olympia Snowe as my Senator. Whenever I hear of some bill I really like in the senate, I almost always hear Olympia Snowe's name attached to it. Net neutrality? Yep. Olympia's on the case. Repealing the global gag rule? Snowe is there. She became a personal hero of mine when I heard she supported the historic McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill. Sure, she has her missteps, like voting for the Patriot Act, but all-in-all, she is the kind of senator a progressive independent can really get behind. And as a bonus, she has a really kickass name.

Go, Olympia! Keep showing those conservo-fascist fundie turdballs that they don't own all of the Grand Old Party just yet.
