Hmm. It appears that Sen. Collins has folded like a folding chair on Wall Street reform.
Think this had anything to do with it?
The fun starts at 2:02. The look on the face of Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) is, at times, priceless.
For the record, I don't think Sen. Collins is schizophrenic. I just think she's a hypocrite.
UPDATE: The junior senator will, of course, want credit here for being a moderate bipartisan centrist filibuster maverick. Or something.
And stenographers in the Maine media will probably give it to her. (If they even notice.)
But caving into the clear will of the people, in the face of public humiliation, doesn't exactly make you a non-ideological team player.
This isn't about moderation. It's about facing reality.
