In the Maine northwoods, there’s an expression used by locals to describe a moose’s low intelligence who are so dumb they don’t know enough to get out of their own way. The words are “dung-ey” and “gommy” — perfect descriptions for the dumb animal and Maine’s senator Susan Collins.
Predictable but disgusting. Dung-ey, gommy Susan Collins will be voting to confirm Ketanji. Count on this dung-ey woman to vote on the wrong side of America. Always. Make bet on it.
Someone on the Telegram “Maine Audit Channel” noted: “Susan Collins and the Globalist elites want to end our way of life as we know it.”
Naw… Susan Collins is too dumb to understand the impact of her votes. Dumb as a Maine moose. To suggest that Collins and Maine’s other senator Angus King, “Independent” (no relation) are clever or calculating is a bridge too far. Neither of them possess dazzling intellect.
Another Mainer on Telegram reminded readers:
“In 2020, Susan Collins opposed Donald Trump’s third nominee to The Bench, Amy Coney Barrett.”
My home and my vote is in Florida. I have a second home in Maine, and the political contrast between the two states is hard to exaggerate. I get to see up close the disparity between sensible DeSantis policies that protect Floridians’ rights versus Maine’s democrat governor who is a lockdown, vax pushing, business ruining, masked piece of work whose policies hurt Mainers across the board. But the wealthy Democrat population centers in the state’s coastal and southern areas love her policies because she’s one of them and her policies consistently favor them. The rest of Maine, at least those who pay attention, are primarily conservative MAGA supporters and are damned and ignored.
It’s pathetic and sad. Maine’s representatives in the state’s capital of Augusta or in the nation’s capitol in DC are no help whatsoever. Hard-working, low income Mainers in the less populated northern areas outside the population centers of Portland / Lewiston never win. They rarely if ever get a break. Their votes and their voices are outnumbered time and again.
Quoting from another Mainer on Telegram who knows of dung-ey Collins:
“…I blame the Maine GOP for the mess we are in. First, there is no person running against Golden. Second, When Craft did run, the GOP gave him no support. Lastly, Collins has been in office for 30 years and has not voted in the best interest for Mainers. She sides with Biden and begs for his support. The last election for her 2018 he really had not other person to choose within the Republican party and therefor we had to chose the lesser of two evils. Collins or Gideon.”
This disgusted Mainer on the Telegram Maine Audit Chat channel wrote: “What really concerns me is that last financial package that Susan voted for. It has that carbon tax included in it. What I am afraid of is that now we are in a fuel crisis, I am expecting that they will start charging us with the carbon tax based on the mileage that we drive. They will use the excuse that the carbon tax will lower the gasoline usage.”

And yet… and yet… this dung-ey RINO Collins announced she will vote to confirm child porno enabler Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
So predictable… Shaking my head.
Oh, and don’t forget this…

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Wednesday she plans to vote to confirm Judge Ketanji
Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court, making her the first Republican to declare
support for Democrat President Joe Biden’s pick.
“I have decided to support the confirmation of Judge Jackson to be a member of the
Supreme Court,” Collins said after her second personal meeting with Jackson, The New
York Times reported Wednesday.
If confirmed, Jackson would be the first Black woman to serve on the top U.S. judicial
Collins, considered a moderate Republican, disclosed her intention to vote in the Senate to
confirm the federal appellate judge in a statement released by her office.
The senator said she reviewed Jackson’s record, watched her testify during her Senate
Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing last week and met her twice in person, and
concluded the judge possesses the “experience, qualifications, and integrity” to serve in
the lifetime post.
Collins lamented what she called a disturbing trend of politicizing the judicial nomination
“No matter where you fall on the ideological spectrum, anyone who has watched several
of the last Supreme Court confirmation hearings would reach the conclusion that the
process is broken,” she said.
“In my view, the role the Constitution clearly assigns to the Senate is to examine the
experience, qualifications, and integrity of the nominee. It is not to assess whether a
nominee reflects the ideology of an individual senator or would rule exactly as an
individual senator would want,” Collins added.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said last week the chamber was “on
track” to confirm Jackson to the lifetime job before its expected break for Easter on AprilSenator Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., the most conservative Democrat in the Senate,
announced last Friday that he would vote to confirm her, signaling that she will have the
votes to overcome widespread Republican opposition.
With a simple majority needed for confirmation and the Senate divided 50-50 between the
parties, Jackson will get the job if Democrats remain united regardless of how the
Her confirmation would not alter the court’s ideological balance — it has a 6-3
conservative majority— but would let Biden freshen its liberal bloc with a 51-year-old jurist
young enough to serve for decades. Biden nominated Jackson last month to the lifetime
post to succeed retiring liberal Justice Stephen Breyer.
During her confirmation hearing, several Republican senators accused Jackson of being
lenient when she served as a trial court judge on sentencing child pornography offenders.
Jackson defended her sentencing record, and American Bar Association witnesses
rejected the allegations that she was “soft on crime.”
