Angus King, Attention Whore

It looks like Maine just elected a Senator even more annoying than Olympia Snowe.  The state’s former governor, Angus King, was elected to the seat as independent.  During the campaign, he consistently claimed that he wasn’t sure if he would caucus with the Democrats or Republicans if he was elected.

Of course, King’s background and policy positions seem to be a dead giveaway.  He made a small fortune in the wind energy industry. (For the record, I don’t care how he made his money. It’s a just an insight into his worldview).  He supports Obamacare.  He’s pro-choice.  He opposes drilling in ANWR.  To be fair, he does support the Keystone Pipeline but only if there are strict environmental controls; in other words, he opposes the Keystone Pipeline.  Oh, and the Democrats made ad buys against his Republican opponent.

Now that he’s been elected, he still claims he doesn’t know which side he’ll caucus with., but he thinks he’ll make up his mind next week.  As expected, the corrupt media is hanging on to King’s every word.  The gossip website, Politico, is even running stories on how Harry Reid is still lobbying King to side with the Democrats.  Everyone knows which way King will swing, but he sure is getting a lot of attention over his “indecision.”  If this is any clue as to how King will govern, expect him to remain “undecided” on every key vote until he ultimately sides with the left.  He’ll be Lincoln Chafee, only smarter.
