Apparently, when Sen. Susan Collins dies, it will be okay for all of us to lambaste her for not showing up to vote the day of her death! Hell, if someone in her family dies, she’ll be voting in the Senate! We now have permission to condemn her family too for being so selfish & self-centered for attending Suzie-Q’s funeral and not watching C-SPAN2 all day to find out how a particular bill went down!
May she rest in peace someday knowing full well what her voting record for the past seven years has done to our country and it’s people…
*patting crocodile tears from my eyes*
Here’s what the Maine GOP said in a statement:
“October 2, 2007
“Congressman Tom Allen missed each of the three votes the House of Representatives held yesterday, bringing his missed votes total to 132. He also missed three days of votes for a fundraising [sic] trip to California two weeks ago. Over the last three weeks the House has only held votes on ten days — Congressman Allen has missed four of those days completely, for a total of 22 votes.
“Maine Republican Party Chairman Mark Ellis said, “Congressman Allen really seems to have lost interest in showing up to work. At the very least, he should tell his constituents why he is choosing to leave them unrepresented in Congress less than a year after he was reelected. For these and the many other days that Tom has skipped votes, Mainers deserve to know the answer to the question: Where was Tom?”
Ooopsie. The Maine GOP, Suzie Collins, and Lance Dutson are all starting to look exactly how we thought they looked like: REICH WING JERKS!
Lance Dutson, Suzie-Q’s blogger, was quickly embarrassed about this ooopsie…
(Suzie-Q’s paid blogger and mouthpiece (for diverting her voting record away from Mainers by focusing on Moveon.org, DailyKos, FireDogLake, and other powerhouse liberal groups that are helping the democrats outraise the republicans) is embarrassed)
Interesting, huh? Suzie-Q is spending her campaign going after liberals for being “foul-mouthed fem bloggers” rather than talk about her atrocious reich wing jackboot licking voting record over the past seven years. She also wants everyone to believe that since she’s showing up to vote and hasn’t missed a vote, she’s the new Margaret Chase Smith, you know, the beloved republican Senator of Maine that Suzie-Q couldn’t hold a candle to even after Chase’s death! Makes you wonder what Suzie was doing the day Margaret died? She had better have been voting somewhere for crying out loud! Anyways….WHEN SUZIE SHOWS UP TO VOTE INDIVIDUALS LOSE THEIR RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY. When Tom Allen votes, our rights stay intact and when he goes to a funeral and misses a couple of votes, Maine’s “Margaret Chase Smith” becomes the Angel of Death! Wow. Scary.
Long story short: WHEN SUZIE SHOWS UP TO VOTE IN THE SENATE, AMERICANS WEEP LIKE THOSE WHO MOURN AT A FUNERAL!
WHEN TOM ALLEN GOES TO A FUNERAL AND DOESN’T VOTE BECAUSE OF IT, OUR COUNTRY & OUR RIGHTS ARE STILL IN GOOD HANDS!
