The science law is settled!

Susan Collins is an idiot.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Susan Collins, a key vote on President Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, said Sunday she would oppose any nominee she believed would overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

The White House is focusing on five to seven potential candidates to fill the vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on the court. The Maine senator said she would only back a judge who would show respect for settled law such as the 45-year-old Roe decision, which has long been anathema to conservatives.

“I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law,” Collins said.

Oh, absolutely. Which is why Dred Scott, Plessy, and a whole slew of others are actually still in effect. Right, genius?

Such a judge, she said, “would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda.”

Yeah, that would surely be a dangerous thing all right. Why, next thing you know, such an “activist” judge might be creating rights never mentioned in the Constitution at all, just making stuff up to suit the passions of the day. Y’know, like…Roe V Wade.

As with Arizona and McCain, the people of Maine who keep sending this nimrod back to Congress again and again have one hell of a lot to answer for. Bill’s response is the only reasonable one.

  1. I no longer live in Maine, but Collins is a chip off the Snow block, so-to-speak. Snow showed they way by being the Waffle Queen. If you are on the fence, you can negotiate a sweet deal for your vote. . This wretched soul returns year on year, because there is no one else to vote for. Whatever Dimocrat runs opposite her is a progressive’s wet dream. Better her, than the donkey scum alternative.
    As always, follow the money…
