One of the more interesting recent political stories is by Colin Woodard in the September issue of Down East magazine. Woodard may not have intended to do it, but he has added to a growing belief that a major reshaping of Maine's political matrix is taking place.
The first part of his article is pretty much a rehash of the proposition that the Maine GOP has veered so far to the right that it has become little more than an arm of the Tea Party. Nothing new in that. It's what Democrats -- and many in the mainstream media -- would like voters to think.
