Good Riddance

Lincoln Chaffee may bolt:

Two days after losing a bid for a second term, Sen. Lincoln Chafee said he was unsure whether he would remain a Republican.

Remain? But let's be honest, quitting after you've lost is about as lame as it gets.

Chafee said he waged a lonely campaign to bring the party to the middle. He described attending weekly lunches with fellow GOP senators and standing up to argue his point of view, often alone.

"There were times walking into my caucus room where it wasn't fun," he said, adding that he stayed with the GOP largely because it helped him bring federal dollars home to Rhode Island.

So, he only stayed a Republican for legal graft? Like I said, good riddance.

Reading of his loss was easily the best news of the day. I got a nice little glow from it.
