The self-aggrandizing hypocrisy of Olympia Snowe

As you may have heard, Republican Senator Olympia Snowe is retiring.

Via twitter: 

Sen. Snowe: "frustrating... that atmosphere of polarization and 'my way or the highway' ideologies has become pervasive" in politics. 

-- Steve Brusk (@stevebruskCNN)

But what is the self-righteous, process-paralyzing, power-wielding, Republican-leaning "centrism" of Snowe, Collins, Nelson, Lieberman, Landrieu et al. if not a "my way or the highway" ideology and general approach to politics?

Besides, as Zandar reminds us:

Weep not for the Snowe Queen, because when it counted, she was a GOP whackaloon through and through.

Indeed she was (even if she's much more acceptable than the crazy Tea Party types currently in favor in her state). And now the good people of Maine can get back to their senses and send a Democrat to replace her in Washington. Preferably one who isn't of her ideological ilk.
