Conservatives Protest Snowe's Finance Committee Vote By Sending Her... Rock Salt?

So, just in case you were sprawled under a heavy rock, yesterday, chillaxing, the exciting health care reform news is that Senator Olympia Snowe -- the most important senator ever -- has temporarily lent her nominal support to a rather weak health care reform bill that health care industry lobbyists purchased from Senator Max Baucus.

But Snowe's temporary support allows proponents of the bill to claim they won a tiny sprinkling of bipartisanship sauce, the most precious substance in David Broder's Washington. And, via Wonkette, that has inspired RedState's most prolific anger-blogger, Erick Son-of-Erick, to take action! Not very well thought-out action:

Olympia Snowe has sold out the country. Having been banished to our world after Aslan chased her out of Narnia, Snowe is intent on corrupting this place too.

So we should melt her.

What melts snow?

Ooh! Let me guess! Fresh dog urine? Baby dragons? The Earth's natural process of sublimation?

Rock salt.

I'm going to ship this 5 pound bag of rock salt to her office in Maine. It's only $3.00. You should join me.

Uhm.. .Olympia Snowe is from Maine. Wouldn't this snow-melting gift be perceived as useful, if not perceived as, say, anthrax?

Anyway, if you'd like to really stick it to Olympia Snowe, send her the other crucial ingredients for making ice cream by clicking here, here, and here.
