Who's the Maverick NOW???

The airwaves and tubes (internet tubes, that is!) are all a-buzz and a-twittering today about Sen Olympia Snowe. She voted yes in the Finance Commitee yesterday, moving the debate on health care onto the floor! The only Republican to do so!

Eloquently, she said:

"Is this bill all that I want? Far from it. Is it all that it could be? No,” Snowe said. “But when history calls, history calls. And I happen to think the consequences of inaction dictate the urgency of Congress to take every opportunity to demonstrate its capacity to solve the monumental issues of our time.

Then, she got all Maverick-y, went all rogue and cast an AYE! vote.

Now, as we all know, our Sarah thinks SHE is the maverick! She is the one who goes rogue! I don't know exactly what she has done to be maverick-y and rogu-y, but she keeps saying it so .. it must be true, right??

But, as I said, today, it's all about Sen Olympia Snowe. Palin is overshadowed by someone who has actually done something! Someone whose vote mattered! Someone who knows what the hell she is talking about!

So I can't shake this image I have of Sarah today: She is in her beautiful house, on the shores of Lake Lucille, AK ... the beautiful house that Todd and his 'buddies' built a few years ago, coincidently, around the same time a new rec center was being built by these 'buddies' in Wasilla.

I imagine Sarah,pacing around in a rage, all maverick-y like, raging at the unfairness of it all!

I see her as the cheerleader who just lost the 'attention' of the cutest boy in High School, because he asked the smart girl to be his date to the prom....... after Sarah the Cheerleader spent a year doing 'it' with him to get his attention!!

She is the displaced Queen of the Mavericks! Someone has out-rogued her!

The talking heads on Tee-Vee are talking about Snowe, and narry a word about Sarah!

Yesterday, Sarah published a NOTE on her official FB page, with birthday wishes to Margaret Thatcher .. inviting comparisons that surely exist only in the vacuum of Sarah's mind. She sees herself as another Iron Lady? Margaret Thatcher ??? Really?

Sarah: I lived in England during the Thatcher years. I knew Margaret Thatcher; and you, Sarah, are no Margaret Thatcher.

But, that NOTE didn't get noticed, not even as joke material, because Sen Snowe was grabbing all the headlines. Rightfully so.

So, I'm wondering ... what nonsense Note will Sarah publish tomorrow, or soon ... to get back in the limelight!
