The Susan Collins Hypocrisy Watch
Tell Susan Collins to choose: her constituents or George Bush? Up to now, it’s been all George…
In a carefully thought-out bit of political showmanship, Collins publicly took Allen to task for this practice, making it appear that he had paparazzi tailing her and that there was something shady about this practice.
This comes from someone who supported the Patriot Act with the attitude, “If you’re not doing anything wrong, it shouldn’t bother you.”
What’s wrong with holding a U.S. Senator on the campaign trail accountable for what she says? We believe this falls firmly under the rights giving us a public government and freedom of the press.
What’s next? Will Collins next ask the press to leave her alone at public functions such as parades?
Sen. Susan Collins: what she applies to you as a citizen should never be applied to her personally, dontcha know. Hypocrisy much? Sounds to me like she’s taking one too many pages from the Joe Lieberman whine book. Still waiting for the answers to all those pesky ethical questions, Sen. Collins. And we’ll keep on asking them, too, until we get them.
