It was, I'm assuming, a very difficult choice to make, but Maine Senator-elect Angus King has come to an incredibly important decision…
After months of speculation and sidestepping the question, King announced Wednesday morning what many observers had already predicted: He will caucus with the Democratic party when he officially assumes his seat in the Senate.
"The outcome of last week's election in some ways makes this decision relatively easy," King said. "In a situation where one party has the clear majority and effectiveness is an important criteria, affiliating with the majority makes more sense."
Also, there's this weird sour milk smell in the Republican caucus room. It's hard to tell where it's coming from, but it might be Jon Kyl.
