Hypocrisy We Can Believe In

By every indication, Sen. Collins is going to continue to hold Democratic and Republican administrations to different standards--on a whole range of issues.

That said, she seems to have a pretty good point here. The fact that she's been indifferent, historically, to GOP-related contracting abuses and Geneva Convention violations doesn't mean she's wrong this time around.

UPDATE: From WaPo:

Collins also revealed on Wednesday that some of Harding's employees worked at a prison where detainee abuse occurred in 2003, contradicting earlier White House statements that Harding's staffers were assigned to another location.
This looks worse and worse for the White House.
