Centrism Watch

This is pretty funny.

In their quest to canonize Sen. Collins as a "moderate" the reporters of this ABCNews.com piece reach all the way back to a single vote in 2003--against banning "partial birth" abortion--to justify the characterization.

Of course, Collins voted for the nomination of Samuel Alito. And he cast the deciding vote to uphold the ban, which the Court had previously struck down.

But the article's authors didn't see fit to include that minor detail.

To be fair, the ABC piece does encourage Allen to expound on four key issues of the campaign, and at some length too.
