The media lovefest for liberal Republicans has begun. An earlier version of this story ran under the headline: “Palin who? Meet the real GOP mavericks.” And then they regale us with all the stories of the usual Republicans who vote to bankrupt the whole country in order to win these kinds of headlines. “Mavericks” like Olympia Snowe and Lindsey Graham voted to rubberstamp every harebrained idea of the Bush administration, from the prescription drug benefit to exporting the Great Society to the Middle East, and now they are doing the same for every cockamamie Obama administration scheme.
These media lickspittles and bipartisan bloviators are supposed to be mavericks? Give me a friggin’ break.
