Democrats who support term limits apparently think they will only apply to Republicans


and

Don't factor how the forced removal of Democratic icons will open up more opportunities for big money to win seats.



Term limits for Ted Kennedy? really?

The reason we are in this situation now is that there are firmly entrenched people who are running the entire show. They are bought and paid off, for now and eternity. If the American people can't get rid of these assholes, then let time do it. Let the clock run out on them.

I don't care about women, and I don't care that the FBI didn't do a complete investigation. I believe the men. Blah blah blah

again for the senate, I want to help the Democratic Party of Maine as much as I can to get a Democrat in each of those seats.

Her speech was orchestrated to excuse Kavanaugh's vicious attacks on the "Clintons" and provide cover for him.

She knew the FBI report was not the product of a real investigation but a cover-up yet as soon as it came out she refused to tell it like it was.

Collins has such contempt for us and for our institutions, our government.

Her games-plying on this issue has been tantamount to torturing people who are already hurting and crying out for fairness.

She is like someone who tortures starving people by dangling food in front of them and then, as they reach for it, pulling it away and laughing. Her laughter echos that of Brett Kavanaugh.

Susan Collins and Brett Kavanaugh are cases where it is very important for Democracy to prevail that there be consequence for the the dishonesty, the evil.
