"The Women From Maine" in which Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins play moderate Republican witches who try to make the world a better and more fiscally responsible place. Harry Reid will co-star as their befuddled landlord who thinks his tenants are unemployed actresses trying to break into the Portland theater business. Arlen Specter will play Squeaky, their impish helper.

Re: [PumaResponders] 1476 NYT/Collins: How to Stock a Cabinet
If anyone wants to defend Gregg for refusing the Commerce Sec job, here's some ammunition from IBD (though the IBD story does not take comments).
Why A Commerce Job Goes Unfilled
By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY
The decision to remove the 2010 Census from the Commerce Department and give it to White House political operatives was a strong vote of no confidence in Gregg.
It wasn't the only signal. On the day Gregg quit, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs declared the Colombia free-trade agreement was dead, too. "I think the concerns that (President Obama) and others have are still valid around that trade agreement," Semana, a Colombian publication, quoted Gibbs as saying.
