Current events have made a horse's ass of Maine Senator Susan Collins. A short time after she went flitting around pundits belittling pandemic preparedness as a ridiculous stimulus, we find ourselves amidst a global swine flu pandemic.
This video serves up a little crow for her to eat:
The GOP has deteriorated to the point that I wonder how anyone would want to be associated with it. From Susan Collins to Bobby Jindal to Karl Rove to Dick Cheney to Newt Gingrich to Sarah Palin to Rush Limbaugh and the incomparable Michele Bachmann the GOP is one joke after another.
Perhaps it is clarifying moments like these which give Sen. Arlen Specter the rationale for switching parties?
There is more to governance, especially now, than whining about paying taxes and immigrant bashing.
