If liberal activists believe their fury means Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, will think again before toeing the GOP line next time, the indications are they are wrong.

“Bribery does not work on Senator Collins. Extortion does not work on Senator Collins,” Annie Clark, a Collins spokeswoman, told the Washington Examiner in response to questions about her dramatic decision to to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh last Friday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“And anybody who thinks these tactics would work on Sen. Collins obviously doesn’t know her. Sen. Collins made up her mind based on the merits of the nomination. Threats or other attempts to bully her did not play a factor in her decision-making whatsoever.”

The defiant comments by her staff suggest that anti-Kavanaugh rage, before and after her dramatic vote last Friday, could have rebounded. A top Republican strategist in the Senate said it would make her more determined to be re-elected in 2020 because “her will to win is among the fiercest in the chamber”.

    Women CAN lie just as well as men; sometimes BETTER. Not ALL women are TRUSTWORTHY. I certainly wouldn’t take a chance sleeping under the same roof as Lizzy Borden; would you? She was never convicted and they had PHYSICAL proof that a CRIME had actually been committed; which is a thousand times MORE than we got from Ford who had NOTHING to offer but a obviously fabricated story. Senator Collins did what they ALL should have done — she made up her mind according to the evidence ; and there WASN’T any! Keep your chin up, Senator! You did us PROUD!

    Senator Collins you are truly great for sticking by your decision. You have stood strong when others caved. They should take lessons from you about thinking for yourself and not be bullied. God bless you, your family and all who are with you.
