Collins to MPBN: No Comment

Gerald flags a report from MBPN on Sen. Collins' role in the Iraq war contracting mess.

There's little new in the piece, but this is striking:

For the duration of the election cycle, MPBN is asking candidates to personally respond to remarks directly voiced by their opponents. Sen. Collins did not do so for this story.
Given a prime opportunity to explain her decision to forego oversight of Iraq contracting by a major media outlet, the junior senator instead chooses silence.

After trotting out four different talking points to justify her inaction, this approach is perhaps the most telling.

It speaks volumes.
