    Can I marry the Lincoln Project?

    • Teresa says:

      My husband walked in on me in my office binging their videos. So satisfying. I love how they use such succinct almost Trump-like words to convey their points. Trump is a liar. Susan Collins is a stooge. I am here for it.

  2. Atti says:

    Oh no. How dare they. This will make her very concerned I tell you, very concerned!

  3. Vava says:

    Good. I hope the Lincoln Project goes after Moscow Mitch, too! Is Jim Jordan up for re-election, too? I’d love to see Ohio can him.

    • Nic919 says:

      They have a Moscow Mitch ad out already. He was one of their first senatorial target. Also Lindsay Graham.

  4. Liz version 700 says:

    Oh dear I hope she isn’t going to write them a vague half hearted concern letter.

  5. Ragna says:

    Clearly my reading comprehension isn’t the best today because I read Umbrella Man as Umbrella Academy and was very confused.

    Also I kind of feel like having to be told not to plant mysterious seeds is up there with being told not to eat sand (as a fully functional adult). You kind of should have figured out as much on your own.

    • Lady D says:

      Insidious actions, sending seeds. Those seeds have arrived in Canada now. I’m boggled that anyone has to be told not to plant them. Has anyone identified them yet? I also am curious as to why they didn’t mass ship them to elementary schools during the spring when they stood a better chance of being planted? Someone sure missed the mayhem boat.

      • Ragna says:

        Well given the shipping delays because of the pandemic, maybe it just got hold up the mail?

        But yeah. Whether for product reviews, mayhem or otherwise, sending organic material around willy nilly is just not it.

        I’d say send glitter but given the environmental impact of that, don’t do that either. Just. Don’t send stuff people aren’t asking to get.

        And that goes for the store ads delivered to my mailbox too.

      • Livvers says:

        Based on some of the pics I’ve seen it’s a mix. There are lots of citrus seeds and pumpkin/squash-type seeds but the image Canada Border Services used looks like hemp. The ones on the Jezebel website look a bit like sweetpeas. I’ve also seen parsnip seeds, basil, sunflowers, cucumber, oats, and various legumes & mustards. Since it’s a brushing scam the senders obviously weren’t concerned about what seeds they were sending so much as the ‘verified purchase’ reviews they could generate.

      • JanetDR says:

        Every photo I have seen so far looks like citrus seeds. So I’m picturing someone spitting out the seeds from their morning fruit and packaging them up. Ugh!

  6. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I spent one night a few nights ago listening to all their ads. Awesome.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    The only good thing Collins has done in the past few years was her vote against the GOP healthcare bill. Which I’m grateful for. However, she has since been “very concerned“ and then done absolutely nothing to stop or stand up against this administration, which she KNOWS is corrupt and incompetent beyond belief. She voted for Kavanaugh, and continues to defend that vote to this day. Time to go.

    • WigletWatcher says:

      As a Mainer I’m itching to vote her out. She’s hugely popular and knows it. She’s barely here anymore. Constituents make appointments to see her only to be told She’s returned to her D.C. office. She hides there.

      Margaret chase Smith was an amazing trail blazer. Olympia Snowe was a great republican senator. She was fully bipartisan and kept an open door to concerned voters. She served along Collins, but once she left Collins became weak and turned into a puppet.

    Best Instagram I follow is thelincolnproject.

  9. Eugh says:

    Before we go overboard on our love of the Lincoln Project, don’t forget it’s founded by George Conway and a bunch of McCain folks. It’ll be back to your normally scheduled partisan tricks right after

    • KellyRyan says:

      I’ve called them out on their registration as Republicans and ask what will be your platform after the election. I’m registered as in independent, (NPP) in California. I want and expect everyone running for office nationally in my state and county to earn my vote.

    • MaryContrary says:

      If they can help get Trump out and Biden in, and help the Republicans lose the Senate, I’m happy. Plus, they drive Trump crazy-so that is all kinds of awesome.

    • I am Mimi says:

      We’ve always had a two-party system–trump is not going to change that. The Lincoln Project are never-trumpers, not Dems. I’m okay with them going back to their old tricks, AFTER we get rid of trump.

  10. goofpuff says:

    Umbrella man is a white supremcist trying to incite violence? Shocking. And then people still dumb saying ‘but the other protests’. What do you think is happening there? This is the same shit the white power people pulled during the civil rights era, trying to get cops to kill peaceful protestors. Why are we thinking its any different now????

  11. Hildog says:

    Well that is…troubling?

  12. JillyBean says:

    We’re getting seeds here in Canada and it’s all over the news to not plant them… seriously- we could send out lupin and dandelion seeds to the world and put the place up!🤣🤣🤣

  13. Miatagal says:

    We are voting her out here in Maine hopefully. She’s a Trump stooge for sure!

  14. JanaTHING says:

    It is way past time for this two faced bitch to go…
