Olympia Snowe announced her retirement yesterday. I basically can't stand politics. It deeply bothers me that our country, which was founded on such profound and open minded principles, has become this two-sided mud flinging, debased, rooster fight. Our thinking has not advanced. We have lost sight of our objective(s). That said, Olympia has been a truly great politician. Perhaps she is not really 'retiring' and has other plans? Only time will tell.
