National GOP Attempting to Bite Nose to Spite Face

From yesterday's NY Times on the Chafee - Laffey race:

Still, Mr. Chafee appeared heartened, if slightly bemused, at the image of Washington Republicans riding to his rescue. He said he thought that was because he had taken care in how he positioned himself as a red senator from a blue state.

“I’ve taken an extra step in my rhetoric not to go over the line, so to speak,” he said. “I have walked a fine line in how I vote and not taking it too far to alienate some people who could be helpful. [i.e., liberal Democrats, get it? wink - wink]”

If this doesn't capture the essence of just who this guy really is; if it doesn't tell you where Chafee is coming from, nothing will.
