Susan Collins

…is, to me, one of the most irritating people in public life. I’m listening to the 911 hearing stuff on the Hill. Like Algore, she talks to us like a kindergarten teacher, and she sounds a little slow herself. I really think of her as one of the dimmer bulbs in the Senate (which is really saying something, considering all the competition), and it’s a little frightening to have her playing a significant role in this activity.
