Maine Governor Paul LePage Stone Cold Pallin' Around With Terrorists
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.
