Susan Collins and Jack Reed - Hot Mic

While I sympathize with people caught on a hot mic, having what one believed to be private comments becoming public, I am enjoying that the remarks made by Republican Sen. Susan Collins and Democrat Sen. Jack Reed were revealed.

From the Washington Post:

In a more salacious part of what was recorded, Collins then addressed a radio interview in which Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.) suggested that if Collins were a man, he’d have challenged her to a duel for opposing the Senate Republicans’ Obamacare overhaul bill.

“Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asks.

“I know,” Reed replies. “Trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ‘Cause you could beat the s— out of him.”

“Well, he’s huge,” Collins replies. “And he — I don’t mean to be unkind, but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable.”

“Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this Playboy bunny?” she continues, referring to an infamous photo of Farenthold, below.

Listen to the audio:

Collins was extremely unkind. Reed was unkind, too.

I'm glad they were exposed.
