Susan Collins Voting Against SCOTUS Confirmation in the Name of Values

The only thing nastier than Susan Collins’ monstrous visage is her true democracy system of values and principles.

But please, imagine: she is barely hanging on to her Senate seat. She is not doing this for any other reason than that it is what the boomers in her state want her to do. She has an election this year.

The rest of the “principles and values” Republicans all already folded.

Fox News:

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, took a veiled shot at her party’s leadership in the Senate on Sunday when she announced that she would be voting against the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

“Prior to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, I stated that, should a vacancy on the Supreme Court arise, the Senate should follow the precedent set four years ago and not vote on a nominee prior to the presidential election.,” Collins said in a statement.

She added: “Because this vote is occurring prior to the election, I will vote against the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.”

“When the Senate considers nominees to the United States Supreme Court, it is particularly important that we act fairly and consistently, using the same set of rules, no matter which political party is in power,” she said. “What I have concentrated on is being fair and consistent, and I do not think it is fair nor consistent to have a Senate confirmation vote prior to the election.”

Imagine thinking that the Democrats, when and if they are ever in power again, are going to honor niceness like this. It’s delusional.

But again: what people are saying is that she is doing this because the people in her state actually want her to do this, and she would lose reelection if she didn’t do this. That is the big-brained take from some of the biggest brains on Twitter.

Dinesh D’Souza is the de facto biggest brain on Twitter, because every single other person that is even moderately right-wing has already been banned.

But yeah, the news is also saying that.

She’s getting hit hard, including by gay celebrities from the 1960s.

I guess that it is better that she win the election. She does vote Republican sometimes.

Frankly, I’m exhausted by the entire Republican Senate, I’m even more exhausted by grannies, but she’s the last Senate Republican from New England, and apparently, the only way she can stay in office is by doing liberal acts.

Apparently: this doesn’t even matter and the votes are already there to confirm Amy Two-Names, and that’s happening now.
