Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation's Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as "workplace violence". She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

It sounds like a too-funny-to-be-true witticism. Except it is true.

The very existence of the fat lesbian socialist cow Napalitano is “workplace violence”

Is she up for reelection this year?

She has it right, of course.

This PC crap is truly overbearing.

Absolutely galling. I didn’t know shouting terrorist catch-phrases was a common part of workplace violence. Live and learn.

Obviously trying to shame islamists hasn’t worked, so maybe the new plan is to pretend terrorism is acceptable and see how that works out?

I've cleaned my computer screen and it STILL says Susan Collins. Maybe I have to get new glasses.

Political correctness will be the death of America. Look at Napolitano’s mutterings about home grown terrorists, what BS.

As a patriotic American, I am ashamed of this President and his entire Administration.

Thank you for your service.

Surprise, Surprise RINO Collins doesn't come up for reelection until 2014.

Incumbents are really running scared when they start their campaign 3 years in advance.

Don’t get too worked up about her changing spots...she is also working with that asshat dem senator McKaskill from Missouri on a piece of excrement “nonpartisan” legislation: “Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) participated in a news conference today to announce the the Bipartisan Jobs Creation Plan. The plan will extend payroll tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of the year, while imposing a tax surcharge on millionaires and ending tax breaks for big oil.

Crazy Claire is scared.

She will cosponsor any legislation that sounds good to the voters.

If the Republicans come up any one who half way decent, she is toast.

I believe that in the last remaining months of the Obozo Administration, this bunch will hold absolutely nothing back. They know their time is almost up, and they’ll spit in the face of anything that even remotely resembles American patriotism, honor and justice. Their seething anti-Americanism will be shown in its full glory for everyone to see.

Not to be too upfront, but if you think Islamist can be shamed, you need to do a tad more research on the mentality of Mad Moe and his hordes of psychotic madman
