Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTOBER 10, 2018 COMMENTARY A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. Late Night Laughs Collins just guaranteed a blue wave WASHINGTON Sen. Susan Grassley Collins, R-Maine, may be so dubbed because she more than mimicked Senate Judiciary Chair man Sen. Chuck Grass ley, R-Iowa. In what will be Collins long-lamented disingenuous speech announcing her support for Judge Bret Kavana ughs elevation to the U.S. Supreme Court, she surpassed Grassley in ignoring the lies, outra geous temper and blatant biases displayed by the judge in his hearing. Further, she bought into the contorted Grassley argument that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was credible but mistaken about her sexual assault attacker. Instead, Collins offered a litany of controver sial cases in which Kavanaugh dissented, but ex plained them away, claiming his decisions were based upon narrow elements. She accepted the word of Kavanaugh, whose veracity was under mined by his testimony, that he would not over turn Roe. V. Wade. Collins has done this before, expressed values. Collins is not up for reelection until 2020 in Maine, an increasingly blue state whose other senator, Angus King, is an Independent who caucuses with Democrats. Apparently, Collins concluded that a vote against Kavanaugh would cause her to be primaried. Since the Republi can Party has essentially become a Trump Re publican Party, incumbents who fail the Trump orthodoxy have faced the prospect of primary challenges that oust them. Oddly enough, this put Collins in a no-win situation. Her Kavana ugh vote will ensure her nomination for reelec tion while simultaneously ensuring her defeat in the general election. She would have been bet ter served to have held true to her stated beliefs, voted against Kavanaugh, and then run as an In dependent in 2020. Sen. Lisa Murkowski already faced such a situation in Alaska when, after losing the Re publican primary, she ran and won as an Inde pendent. This allowed her to stand by her prin ciples, buck Trump and the Republicans, and vote against Kavanaugh courage was Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., who after reviewing the FBI report said she would be voting no on Kavanaugh. She has long been considered one of the red-state Democrats who would give her vote to the GOP. She is in a tough her 12 points behind her Republican challenger. But Heitkamp said she listened to the voices in her head from all the women shes heard over the years describe what happened to them. She be lieves them just as she believes Ford. She spoke when she cited his lack of judicial temperament and his partisan bias, together with the number of times he lied and/or shaded the truth in his pur suit of power the very elements Collins conve niently ignored. Even, retired Justice John Paul Stevens, ap pointed to the Court by Republican President Gerald Ford, told a group of retirees in Florida that the hearings changed his mind about Kava naugh, that the bias he displayed doesnt belong on the Court. Collins did not listen. It is of note that nine of the 11 Republican sen ators on the Senate Judiciary Committee come percent of the population. Indeed, seven states are so small that they have two senators and only one representative. This constitutional aberration offers the only breakwater to a blue wave, but this will be overcome by a voter rebellion over the Kavanaugh appointment an appointment fu eled by Sen. Collins, whose speech placed her at the forefront of the disingenuous politicians who are turning the Supreme Court into an arm of Trump Republicanism.
