  •  My God. Is Collins pulling... (12+ / 0-)

    ...a "Lieberman"?

    Lieberman - [uh-TRAH-sittee] - noun - To withhold one's vote when one's vote is seen as the deciding vote in order to attract the attention of the entire fucking Congress and the entire fucking country and the White fucking House and every fucking news media outlet in the whole fucking country. Also associated with holding numerous press conferences where the person "pulling a Lieberman" equivocates, acts coy and behaves as though what they are doing is in the best interests of the entire country and their own constituents in particular when in fact they are slowing down the activities of Congress in order to benefit themselves and only themselves.

    Ex.: "Senator Collins really pulled a Lieberman today."
