The Spidey-Senses of Sen. Susan Collins

Susan Collins’ Uses Her Spidey Senses

Sen. Susan Collins shows us once again that she is an independent, principled GOPer.

Haha, I jest!

Collins said that when she met with the president to discuss the need to fill the seat of Kennedy, who announced his retirement last week, she told him that several qualities are important, including judicial temperament, intellect, fidelity to the rule of law and “most important of all, respect for precedent.”

The Maine Republican added that “it would be inappropriate” to ask a judicial nominee how they are going to vote on a future case.

Sen. Collins eluded how you reconcile those things, respect for precedence and not asking about it. I guess it is one of those gut decisions, those things that Republicans just know somehow. Spidey-senses.

So how did that Gorsuch confirmation vote work out for ya, Susie? You know, that respect for precedent (“the most important of all”)?

    Collins of late (well, almost always) reminds me of the adage “Better to keep your mouth shut than open it and remove all doubt as to your status of a gawping fool.”

    And I guarantee you that Hair Furor heard that as “most important of all, respect for president.” He’s completely on board with that.

    i’m sure when she told him what qualities are important he heard ‘respect for PRESIDENT’ between spoonsful of icecream and that was all/enough for him.
