Olympia Snowe Must Go Now, No really, NOW

Posted on 12/21/2010 2:06:44 PM PST by hausermann

Her DADT and START votes are now a bridge too far. Health Care flirtations and Financial reform gave me indigestion, as did earmarks, but this is as serious as it gets: aiding and abetting our political opponents in an unprecedented un-Americam un-democratic lame-duck cram-down. Those votes make Oly my personal number one electoral target now for 2012. I cannot take the unreliability any more. I would rather see a (D) there from ME (as with CT) than sweat whether she can be wheedled and coerced to see things Rightly.

Somebody please tell me where should I be place my online marketing/technology efforts and/or money to see Oly Snowe challenged and ousted. If we cannot find a national fundraising place online for her specific removal, I will start one of my own.

I saw this, but not sure there is coalescence or if this fellow (no grudge nor brief) is electable, or just another grassroots rushed mistake waiting to happen: http://www.damboiseforsenate.com/

And this: http://paintmainered.ning.com/group/mainersforsnoweremoval OMG the level of web (and spelling) sophisticado is appalling.... I mean really: Ning?

And Maine Refounders on various sub-sites.

ASIDE: Does nobody with conservative credentials understand the web AT ALL? Feel free to call or write if you need help.

Freedom Works and other places have taken no position I can discern. The time is now in the run-up to 2012.

Let me know if it is time for a new site to pass the hat for a challenger to Snowe.

Snowe Removal by Money Bomb if need be.

Let me help with that list. Hatch, Graham, Burr, Voinovich, Bennett,Brown,Murcowski,Cornyn,Lugar .

I don’t know which ones come up in 2012, but they all need to be removed.

I cant wait to see which committee position McConnell gives to Murcowski.If she gets anything better than the Colonel of the Urinal, McConnell should step down.

Hatch is definately up in 2012. Utah is unhappy with him. I am pretty sure they will field a serious challenger.

IMO, Hatch might as well start trying to sell his Washington house now, as in this market, it takes awhile.

There’s a state that Barack Obama claims to be from, that just elected Obama’s best friend as its new Governor and that has ONE Republican in its state Senate.

We didn’t actually need her DREAM Act vote, which is probably why she went our way. I am interested in making that lady sweat for her career the way she always keeps us on pins and needles about which way her wind will blow. We are not at risk of losing the Senate by 1 nose in 2012, and so as a result, I say let’s either give the Dems a proper D and be done with it, saw Maine off into the Atlantic as we would with California, OR let’s field a real, legitimate candidate.

My question remains who is it? Where do I send bucks or sign up to fix their web presence so they don’t look like a former DADT protectee online?

The thing is I’m not so sure such a RINO is the best you’ll get for Maine. Massachusetts, of course. DADT, probably. But Maine went pretty much red in ‘10. Is there nobody better than Snowe to run up there for ‘12?

Up in 2012:

Jon Kyl of Arizona (will he bail or will he stay?)
Richard Lugar of Indiana (fossil, DADT and START flipper; time to go, you, Dick)
Olympia Snowe of Maine (what this thread is all about)
Scott Brown of Massachusetts (what to say about this guy...should we roll dice and try winning there again? Maybe we will get lucky and Zero will fly in with Bubba and rally with the Dem candidate)
Roger Wicker of Mississippi (I carry no brief...anybody want to dish on Wicker for me?)
John Ensign of Nevada (this guy is a lying bribing cheat embarrassment to all real Republicans [yeah I said “real” Mr. Medved, I am a Purginator], he may as well have done a Tappy McWidestance maneuver when sucking on his DADT vote)
Bob Corker of Tennessee (Bob, wtf with the START, man? Thought you were smarter than that.... They say Hank Williams would like a crack at it, Bob, but I’m not so sure about celebrities anymore, so straighten up man.)
Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas (Kay is fine by me, excepting her age and some easily forgiven hiccups in her Perry challenge.)
Orrin Hatch of Utah (Orrin has a fine history on the Judiciary, but he may be getting a tad old, but certainly not as old as Byrd was, and he is nowhere as vulnerable as uber-squish Bennett. I expect he will ride out his life as Byrd did. Better places to monkey-wrench than UT.)
John Barrasso of Wyoming (Dr. John is my bud, him and Dr. NO! of Oklahoma, who himself is not up in 2012, but to whom I wanted to give a shout out because he rules.)

“It’s Maine. A RINO is the best you’ll get.”

Really. Why is that? My 86 year old father was born and raised in Maine but left after WWII to move the Okla. and marry my mother and raise a family. He is very conservative.

What happened to make Maine liberal? It isn’t a very populous state.

I really am curious. I haven’t been there myself since 1969. So, my memory of the people is very dated.

Our Party “leaders” will keep pandering to these RINOs just because they claim to be moderates.
Snowe, Collins and Brown probably vote with the Rats 75% of the time on major issues so I don't know why we keep them around?

KBH though has a decent voting record, but it is so apparent that she hates her own voting record, would much rather vote like her ME sisters than forces in TX compel her to do. I wonder if she will even run again. Democrat John Sharp is after her.

ME was part of MA until 1821. It has a spillover from popular MA liberals moving “north” or “down east” as they say. People there like Hillary Clinton and the “It Takes a Village” concept.

Yes, that is my question as well.

I am Left Coast, but I seethe to buy an online blowtorch to make Snowe melt politically like the Wicked Witch of the East would. If that buys Maine a (D) I could not care less, it could not get worse, in exact analogy with CT. My State has fallen into the Pacific and the Right can’t get a fingerhold here for love or money right now. I want my money to work maximally. Eliminating the political threat of Snowe sounds like a very worthwhile venture to me.

Who is with me?

Let’s do this, just help me identify how. I am a web programmer and online marketing genius who would work long hours for minwage or even gratis to see her succumb to the votes of our Maine brethren.

No, no no!

Look at Pennsylvania. We voted for RINO Specter in 2004 because of that kind of philosophy. And we paid for it for 6 years.

But in 2010, Specter’s gone. Lost to a conservative.

Maine can dump Snowe (and Collins too) and be better off for it, no matter what.

Doesn’t seem as if there’s much RINO about their new guv. Wonder if he’d have any candidates in mind or would be afraid to rock the boat—and not have Snowe fall overboard.

Here, read this on potential RINO-ism in the Maine Statehouse coming up:

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/254283/lepage-backs-snowe-2012-robert-costa

This one says Pete “the Carpenter” Harring, a TEA party fellow of some repute, was made part of LePage’s transition team, much to the consternation of some Lefty site I have read.

http://www.sunjournal.com/state/story/951353

I have no idea about either Andrew Ian Dodge, presumably a Brit in a Yankee Court, nor Scott D’Amboise, whose site I refer to in the original thread.

If anybody would like to comment on their reliability and electability, I am all eyes.

“ME was part of MA until 1821. It has a spillover from popular MA liberals moving “north” or “down east” as they say. People there like Hillary Clinton and the “It Takes a Village” concept.”

Yes, Maine was split for MA, but that was a very long time ago. Maine was a backwoods place and mainly rural. Those types tend to be conservative. If they have gone liberal, it had to have occurred in the later part of the 20th Century. What caused them to change? Are the Republicans in Maine just the remnants of Lincoln? Are they the post Theodore R. Republicans? There has to be a better explaination as to why these, primary rural people vote for such liberal Republicans.

Can someone speak better on this, I’m really curious?

I hasten to point out that LePage has familial loyalty to Snowe, which is commendable, but costly for all of us. I have no data on whether Snowe conduited funds over to LePage to ensure extra loyalty.

Theory: Like the Minnesocoldans, Maine is made of small Northern European populations (Brits and Scots and Irish) without much ethnic or social diversity (just like Swedes and Norwegians and Poles in MN). These, while possessed of a strong work ethic, are susceptible to socialist ideas especially in those harsher environments where much is done together, for “the community.” I daresay a culture of unionism may be also prevalent, as would be expected of British descendants. It is misplaced collectivism (my phrase, I claim it), and after having been immersed in it since childhood, it becomes a norm and habit of thought that is hard to defeat. It takes a conscious effort to shake off the bonds of this form of intellectual laziness and notice that helping a neighbor raise a barn is not at all the same thing as passing the collections hat back to Washington full of your hard-earned so people you will never meet nor likely care about will benefit when the funds are not being largely squandered entropically.

I’m from NH and my impression it that they are fairly libertarian, but because of some deep pockets of rural poverty they get themselves in trouble with, for example, a somewhat socialistic and disastrously designed healthcare program.

That is disappointing about his support for Snowe, but I think it’d be pretty unusual for the guv to oppose a same-party sitting senator in the primary. And he at least takes himself out of saying she deserves reelection by focusing on her husband’s personal help instead.

Yep, what you say is true. The two guys I mention above may be red herrings, or kooks. Unknown.

Here is the hope: A credible threat from the Right will lock-step Snowe for the remainder (until the next lame-duck when she will go all Spector-Bennett on us for sure), and it will also cause Collins to get religion if she values her job as well.

There are some who say she may simply go the way of Dodd and bail in the face of a mounted early threat. Here’s hoping.

Agreed completely. The one that really amazes me, though is Susan Collins. Every time I see her I think she should be behind a high school cafeteria steam table, dishing out lousy mashed potatoes and joking with the students. She should definitely NOT be in the Senate. She has the IQ of a mud pie. But then again . . .
