I don’t think some of the people in Maine knew what they were really getting when they did not show up to vote in the gubernatorial election, but they do now. Having a case of buyer’s remorse after the fact does them no good. I think this is just the first of many embarrassments the people of Maine will have to deal with with a loose cannon governor like LePage.
With his “kiss my butt comment,” he essentially told the people of Maine that he does not believe in the value and worth of all individuals, and that he doesn’t want anything to do with promoting diversity. I feel most sorry for his black adopted son. LePage may live in his own version of the Twilight Zone, but his adopted son will run smack dab into the truth once he leaves LePage’s household. It never occurred to LePage to wonder for one moment how what he said about a black organization would make his black adopted son feel. I know that if he were my father, after a statement of this sort, I’d wonder whether I’d ever be good enough in his eyes simply because my skin contains more melanin than his does. If my Bible is correct, there’s a special place in Hades reserved for Governor LePage.
There are a few reasons why LePage, the recently-elected State Bigot for Maine, supports the “Maine Right to Life Committee” and opposes the NAACP. Firstly, there’s money; the MROLC has probably “donated to his campaign” (read: Bribed him) heavily. Secondly, and more important, LePage believes that women, Blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Catholics, and other non-WASPs should not be permitted to vote, own property, nor indeed, roam the streets without their owners’ direct supervision.
He is, in short, a frustrated slave-owner.
I dearly hope that having LePage as governor will get Maine people off their asses (even in deep snow!) and out to protest the four years of idiocy and degradation we can expect. And let’s get these Republicans out of the legislature in 2012. I am not a Democrat, but I truly think we can do better.
