Sen. Susan Collins Displays Willful Ignorance

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) provides us with another compelling example of willful ignorance in the politicians we elect. I am becoming increasingly concerned over the degree to which blantant lying is now typical behavior for many Republican members of Congress and how little accountability there seems for those who repeatedly engage in it.

Rachel Maddow does an excellent job of setting Sen. Collins straight in this clip, but somehow that doesn't seem good enough. There has to be a political price to pay for this sort of thing, doesn't there?

Those of us in the reality-based community are fond of pointing out that one is entitled to one's own opinion but not one's own facts. Aside from calling it out like Maddow did when people are caught doing this, I'm not sure what else we can do.
