Collins is lying again. Anyone that voted for a republican voted to strip away Rights from women. All Republicans are evil

Her husband, the lobbyist, and her will cackle and smile all the way back their mansion.

Can i use the c word? That's what she is.

When you see young women... mostly poor young women of color, dying in back alley abortion clinics... make sure you remember Susan Collins.

Now be fair.

Some might die in emergency rooms with their organs rotting out of them.

Collins will not even vote to protect voting rights so it is clear she hates democracy along with her hate of anyone not rich or republican.
 
2021-12-02 12:09:56 PM  
Not that it means anything in the grand schemes of things -- and I say this kind of thing around here from time to time -- but people like Susan Collins remind me that I am not as crappy a person as I'm pathologically inclined to believe so much of the time.  Not by a really long shot.

So - I know this is really selfish - for this, I am grateful to god-awful sh*tbags like Susan Collins.

If you don't mention it, it didn't actually happen.

I would think that considering his track record in college he would have a different position on this topic....

/ or he is a hypocrite

Just charge him with perjury and throw him in jail for contempt of congress. Have him transferred to a black site and die of natural causes then replace him with a New Justice.
 
2021-12-02 2:22:53 PM  
I'm sure she's personally in favor of abortion rights, she's just not willing to do a god damn thing to protect them and she cares way more about holding onto power and helping rich people.
 
2021-12-02 2:23:18 PM  
She was so shook she concerned.
 
2021-12-02 2:24:12 PM  
Too bad we didn't abort Collins last reelection,
or the one before that,
or the one before that ,
Or, the one before that.

Obligatory concern comment.

Anyway, I'm at a furry convention right now, so I'll be scarce over the next couple of days. Lemme know if you guys want anything while I'm out!

Old Yankee conservative?  Yes.  Paul LePage was something of an anomaly, but get even 10 miles away from the Southern coast and the state turns into Republican country pretty quickly.

Her Democratic opponent wasn't great and decided to hold back on spending $15 million dollars in campaign contributions so they'd have a war chest on hand after they won, which they didn't...

You really think that will stick?
"Yeah, I was in favor to Roe v Wade, but I heard both sides of the argument and decided that more restrictions needed to be placed on abortion". Lawyer-types can dress up the language better than I can.
Regardless, a perjury charge would be impossible to prove.
 
2021-12-02 2:31:17 PM  
It seems fitting that the reversal of women's health rights dies by a vote from Susan farking Collins. It's probably the most ironically fitting death of this whole farking debate. A modern day Phyllis Schlafly, if you will. Congrats Sue. Big props. You farking coont.

I hope people see what electing these people means for society in the long run. They won't, but I can hope.
 
2021-12-02 2:31:29 PM  
We all knew he was gonna.

And she chose to blissfully believe his bullshiat anyway.

And YET: Maine voters re-elected her anyway. You get exactly what you deserve.

True, but both times a 3rd party split the vote so he never actually had a majority.

Also, anything north of Augusta should be labeled, "He be dragons" on any map. It is a conservative wasteland outside of any major city/town.

I love my state, but really hate half of the people in it.

"I did not see his questioning or hear any of the arguments. I hope to later tonight play them so I have first hand knowledge...but so can't comment about what I didn't see."

So ask her again tomorrow. And if she punts again, ask her the next day - or, even better, have the clip ready to play on your phone (after asking if she has a few minutes to chat for some puff piece).

She'd punt again, of course, because no Republican ever sees a Republican's bad press; but if there's one thing the GOP already knows and Dems should learn, it's how to beat a politician or candidate into the ground through sheer force of repetitive questioning (and filling in their own blanks about what that answer might be, along with pointing out cowardice or a failure to be informed*).

// it at least forces the news to start all their SCOTUS/Collins coverage with the incessant question - "Susan Collins continues to duck questions over her having been so easily misled by then-SCOTUS candidate Brett Kavanaugh's support for Roe v Wade. Is it simply that she doesn't care but is afraid to say so? Was she herself lying to us in 2018? What else might she not care about being lied to about?"
* in the GOP's case, this would be "infromed"

Here is Maine. You have congressional district 1. It has the cool parts of the state, like Portland and the coast. It is wicked expensive, and people from CD2 refer to it a Northern Massachusetts. Most of the Tax base is there as well.

CD2 is where the blue collar workers call home. You can get a house for alot less than on the coast, and most people in CD2 are GOPers, or at least alot of them are. It's like the south, but colder.
 
2021-12-02 2:46:21 PM  
Yeah, get farked, Collins.

Your life is a continued waste of resources.

I think this calls for at least a furrowed brow.
 
2021-12-02 2:51:25 PM  
I'm sure she'll write an editorial for The Washington Post or New York Times about how concerned she is about all this.  That'll make it all OK.
 
2021-12-02 2:52:45 PM  
Say what you like about her, at the end of the day, she knows her place.

Bravely bold Ms. Collins
Rode forth from Caribou.
She was not afraid to lie,
Oh brave Ms. Collins.
She was not at all afraid
To ride the fence each day.

Brave, brave, brave, brave Ms. Collins.
She was not in the least bit scared
To be forced to swing Repub
Or to have to compromise
And her promises broken.
To have America split
And her place in history set
As her principles are backed by nothing

Brave Ms. Collins.
Her vote for sale
And her furrowed brow
And her spine is gone
And her lips are pursed
And her arms are crossed
And her fake concern
And her caucus

"That's, that's enough music for now lads, there's dirty work afoot."

Brave Ms. Collins ran away.
("No!")
Bravely ran away away.
("I didn't!")
When danger reared it's ugly head,
She bravely turned her tail and fled.
("I never!")
Yes, brave Ms. Collins turned about
And gallantly she chickened out.
("You're lying!")
Swiftly taking to her feet,
She beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the brave, Ms. Collins!
