Jason Linkins over at HuffPo has an interesting piece on how independent Susan Collins is not, of late, and particularly on important issues. As I reported two years ago, she's pretty strongly co-dependent. She voted with GW Bush 77 percent of the time overall, and 88 percent of the time on his economic policies. Now she wants to know what his dad thinks about nuclear weapons.
Snowe doesn't get off too easy there, either - these are experienced senators who suddenly need more time to think? Really? What vitally important issues have they and their staffs been thinking about, if not tax cuts and nuclear weapons?
