Maine Governor Paul LePage Stone Cold Pallin' Around With Terrorists

News

Did you readTalkingPointsMemo's barnburner of a story about Maine Governor Paul LePage, and how he is so stupid that he kept meeting with a group of Sovereign Citizens -- eight times in eight months, Blanche, for one to three hours each? And that the Sovereign Citizens loved talking about their buddy who was in prison for conspiring to execute judges, as any good Sovereign Citizen would do? Because Sovereign Citizens have a startling tendency to try to murder policemen, and judges, and other treasonous "elected" "officials" (as if there is any such thing)? And that LePage asked the state Attorney General to meet with them too, and probably arrest the state's top Democrats for treason? (What was the treason, you ask? Not meeting with the Sovereign Citizens! But probably worse is how they just refuse to stop using paper money.) Then the state lawyers intervened and made him up a real purty Powerpoint probably, explaining that, no, the Sovereign Citizens could not actually arrest the state's top Democrats for treason? Because "not meeting with Sovereign Citizens what want you to meet with them" and "using paper money" are not actually hangable offenses (yet)? And then Maine Governor Paul LePage stopped meeting with the Sovereign Citizens, and spouting their UN and anti-windmill insanity, and otherwise being the Sovereign Citizens' little governor bitch? BUT HE ACTUALLY HAD TO HAVE IT EXPLAINED TO HIM FIRST? It was a fun story. You could read it! And probably should if we went to the trouble of linking it for you twice. Jesus Christ, Maine Governor Paul LePage is a stupid sack of shit.


Oh, the windmill thing? That was where the Sovereign Citizens -- did you know the fellows whose utter nonsense LePage was repeating love to talk about their buddy who is in prison for conspiring to murder judges? Maybe you do, because we just said it in the last paragraph! -- claimed that the windmill that was cutting a hundred grand off the electricity bills for some dumb Maine college was actually powered by a battery or a motor or little windmill gnomes or something. Then LePage repeated that, because he is actually shockingly stupid.

We covered it at the time, because we love fucking idiots. Not fucking them. You know what we mean.

More importantly, Paul LePage is a shockingly stupid Tea Party man, and he is governor of Maine, and he loves Sovereign Citizens and probably terrorism, the end.

It's Sunday, and that means it's time for a break from the ongoing grind of awfulness out there. Let's dive into some cool, funny, thoughtful stuff to fortify ourselves before we get back to the daily madness, shall we?

After watching President Arty McDeals twist in the wind for a month, IRL politician Mitch McConnell finally decided to throw the mook a lifeline. Despite constant screaming about women with duct tape over their mouths, Trump is getting blamed for the shutdown and even his own supporters are starting to turn on him. So Ol' Yertle summoned Mike Pence and Jared Kushner to his chambers for some #RealTalk.

"Tell Donald that he has to offer something so it looks like the Democrats are the ones who won't compromise." He said. (Probably.)

"That's great," squeaked young Jared (allegedly), "Democrats are desperate. We've got them right where we want them." McConnell blinked hard.

"No, Jared," he probably said. "They're not going to take the deal. We'd have more luck getting Mexico to pay for it. The point is to offer something silly so they turn us down, and then we try to convince the public that the shutdown is Democrats' fault."

"I don't get it," said Jared (allegedly), as Mother's boy Pence furrowed his brow and sighed through his nose. (Not allegedly, it's his signature move.)

"I know," Mitch might have said. "Believe me, I know."

Which is how President Teleprompter wound up giving a MAJOR ADDRESS yesterday offering to hold off on deporting some of the Dream Act kids for a hot second if Democrats will just give him $5.7 billion for WALL and let him expel future child arrivals without a hearing. Trump himself rescinded protections for up to a million immigrants brought here as kids as soon as he took office, but he'll let some of those hostages go if Democrats will just give him cash for that WALL that Mexico is "indirectly" paying for. Heck, he'll even let 300,000 people who fled war and natural disasters and put down roots here over decades to stay a little longer, if that's what it takes. He plans to deport them all in three years anyway, or else use them for another round of hostage negotiations. (If we re-elect That Orange Idiot, spit on the ground/sign of the horns/God forbid.)
