Senator Collins responds to Trump’s misdeeds with yet another finger wag

I woke up this morning to steady rain and big drips.

NPR’s Weekend Edition was leading with latest Trump purge, firing Inspector General at State Department.

It’s contradiction in US government. Inspectors general are expected to be independent and professional, but such attributes not tolerable to Trump.

Nor are scientists.

Weekend Edition carried news that Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine, is “concerned” at the latest firing.

I instantly thought of classic Gene McCarthy line.

“A moderate Republican is a person who, if you are drowning 30 feet offshore, will throw you a 20 foot length of rope, and claim that they have gone more than halfway.”
