Here's Sen. Collins talking about the latest nonsense from the McCain campaign:
"This kind of campaign [robo]call does not reflect the kind of leader that [McCain] is."The idea seems to be that the ugly tactics Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has resorted to are beneath him.
And yet he's resorted to them just the same.
Look: It's interesting (and convenient) for Collins to try to put some daylight between herself and the McCain campaign less than three weeks before Election Day--just as her own race seems to tighten.
But at what point does Sen. Collins conclude that McCain and Gov. Sarah "great choice" Palin (R-AK) are part of the problem rather than the solution?
I mean, if "partisan rancor" is the single biggest problem in Washington today, why does Susan Collins continue to work to elect a Republican ticket that's waged one of the most bitter, negative and resentment-filled campaigns in recent memory?
