RUNAWAY METAPHORS  4:27 pm July 13, 2012

Maine Gov. In Trouble Because Apparently Health Care Reform Isn’t As Bad As The Holocaust Or Something

by Josh Fruhlinger

METAPHOR FREEDOMDid you know that the Gestapo, in addition to hauling away political dissidents and Jews and Gypsies to die in camps, also were a law enforcement agency, that enforced the law, of Nazi Germany? That’s all Maine Governor Paul LePage is saying, man. Don’t get all worked up. He’s just saying that, much like the Gestapo enforced the the laws in Nazi Germany that you weren’t allowed to be Jewish, on penalty of death, so too the IRS will be enforcing the laws of America that you aren’t allowed to not have health insurance on penalty of, like, a fine or something. That’s all he meant when said that the IRS was just like the Gestapo. GOD. So whiny, all of you.

Your Comics Curmudgeon is going to use his Jewish Privilege to announce that he honestly doesn’t get offended when people, even people he disagrees with, use Nazi Germany as a metaphor, because if you can’t use Nazi Germany as a metaphor for a dictatorship that arose surprisingly quickly out of democratic institutions, what the hell good is it? Still, it’s always fun to see some jerk repeatedly apologizing for some dumb overblown thing he’s said, without actually apologizing:

The story began on July 7 when LePage — a tea party-leaning Republican — used his official weekly radio address to warn that the Supreme Court ruling upholding the health care law would turn the IRS into “the new Gestapo.”

That prompted criticism from the Anti-Defamation League and an organization representing IRS employees.

Apparently caught off guard by the outrage, LePage offered his first apology to a Maine TV station on July 9.

“It was never intended to offend anyone,” he said on camera. “And if someone’s offended, then they ought to be goddamn mad at the federal government.”

On July 12, LePage was asked again about the July 9 remarks by an alt-weekly. That’s when he expressed regret at offending anyone — but doubled down on the claim that the IRS will kill people like the Gestapo in Nazi Germany did.

“What I’m trying to say is that the Holocaust was a horrific crime against humanity and, frankly, I would never want to see that repeated,” he said. “Maybe the IRS is not quite as bad. Yet.”

You know when a politician is taking the bold stance that the Holocaust is bad and quite frankly it would be for the best if it never happened again, you are dealing with a real leader. Anyway, LePage finally apologized for real after being whisked away to answer to a cabal of Maine Jews (how many of these are there, exactly?). But if wants to court this powerful constituency, he needs to know what they really want, like Angela Merkel, leader of the home of the non-metaphorical Holocaust, does:

Blatant pandering

Aww, yeah, that’s the stuff. See, governor: Leadership. [TPM]

Maine Jews?

It's a good thing he didn't have to answer to the Maine Coons.

C_R_Eature July 13, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Yeah baby, you don't wanna mess with those cats. Dig?

BoatOfVelociraptors July 13, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Right on, man. Big ball of fluff with claws in that stuff.

FlownOver July 13, 2012 at 4:51 pm

True dat. I have scars.

Dashboard Buddha July 13, 2012 at 10:47 pm

I saw what you did there.

lunchbox360 July 13, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Oh,you were talking about cats! For a second I thought you were George Zimmerman.

Ryy July 13, 2012 at 9:57 pm

OK, this is one of the better comments ever

C_R_Eature July 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Yet another asshole doing his level best to make Godwin obsolete.

bumfug July 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm

"Oh, make no mistake mein herr, ve haf vays to make you vell. Hahahahahahahahaha!"

JohnnyQuick July 13, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Remember when Hitler saved Detroit? Libtard.

BoatOfVelociraptors July 13, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Volkswagen would bug out.

CapnRadio July 13, 2012 at 4:32 pm

A spokesman from the LePage administration, a Mr. Godwin, surprisingly opted not to comment.

sewollef July 13, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Er, why is this naked chick bending over next to a car — again? To the right, here.

It's nice and all, but awfully distracting when you're trying to snark… know what I mean?

Callyson July 13, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Had Governor LePage had this ad to distract him, he might have kept out of trouble in the first place. Just sayin'…

starfanglednut July 13, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Geez, I didn't even notice. I was looking at the ice cream. How sad is that?

weejee July 13, 2012 at 4:32 pm

LePage? Isn't he some old hoof(er) who went through the rendering plant? A real sticky schmuck?

flamingpdog July 13, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Pastey white he is.

Billmatic July 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm

it’s always fun to see some jerk repeatedly apologizing for some dumb overblown thing he’s said, without actually apologizing

he forgot to put #deadbabies at the end, though

SorosBot July 13, 2012 at 4:37 pm

But enough about Tosh.

SorosBot July 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm

What I’m trying to say is that the Holocaust was a horrific crime against humanity and, frankly, I would never want to see that repeated. Maybe the tea party-leaning Republicans are not quite as bad. Yet.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 July 14, 2012 at 1:50 am

Isn't it funny that the hardcore rightwing authoritarians abusively refer to anything they don't like as the Holocaust? I mean I know we all break Godwin's law from time to time but I'll defer to Sinclair Lewis: "Fascism in America will begin as anti-fascism" or in this case, pretend fascism. Word.

RadioSlut July 13, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Cut the guy a little lebensraum. Today we are all Slavs to Romneycare.

not that Dewey July 13, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Twenty twenty twenty four hours to go, I wanna be Sudeten.

coolhandnuke July 13, 2012 at 4:34 pm

One way of determining the sociopath in an individual is how they apologize. Most sociopaths lack the empathy and conscience to execute any apology effective/affective.

CapnRadio July 13, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Do we have to circle the correct term or risk losing a point?

weejee July 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm

No, just fill-in the correct circle on the Scantron.

coolhandnuke July 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Just toss a dart at it…I have no point really, other than I watch too much Dexter.

Boredw/Gravitas July 13, 2012 at 4:35 pm

You know who else used Gestapo tactics?

Oh, never mind. The answer to all Republican teabaggery is "Hitler."

C_R_Eature July 13, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Glenn Beck?

RadioSlut July 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Homeland Security?

“It was never intended to offend anyone,” he said on camera. “And if someone’s offended, then they ought to be goddamn mad at the federal government.”

I know everyone suddenly decided after the Scott Walker mess that recalls just weren't an okay thing to do, but here is Exhibit A that they certainly are.

HarryButtle July 13, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Oh, what's the fucking point. Scott Walker also proved that the Koch brothers will simply buy the recall election anyway.

OzoneTom July 13, 2012 at 4:35 pm

So anyone who enforces the law is like the Gestapo?

One more thing for Issa to go after Holder for.

starfanglednut July 13, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Nope, just anyone who enforces a law enacted under a black president.

worrytron July 13, 2012 at 7:50 pm

That's why they called them Brownshirts.

prommie July 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Maybe the IRS isn't as bad as the worst crime in history? Ah, you have to hand it to the GOP, its not the party of insane idiots or anything, these are the words of a Statesman!

CapnRadio July 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I love that movie where William Holden determines that a member of his family is not really a dependent and he stages a breakout from his accountant's office.

Chichikovovich July 14, 2012 at 8:01 am

Oh, yeah! And when it turns out that Peter Graves is really an auditor? Classic.

proudgrampa July 13, 2012 at 4:37 pm

“And if someone’s offended, then they ought to be goddamn mad at the federal government.”

No, you fucking idiot. They ought to be goddamn mad at the goddamn asshole who made the offensive remark. Goddamn it!

kittensdontlie July 14, 2012 at 2:23 pm

I pity the poor Mainers who have had to suffer this fool…Indeed, there are a plentitude of ordinary p—–s(appropriate sex organ redacted) more qualified to govern than that dumb deek.

C_R_Eature July 13, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Wait- did LePage apologize because the Maine Jews threatened to have Angela Merkel circumcise him?
If not I'm confused, because that makes a lot of sense.

Swampgas_Man July 14, 2012 at 10:49 am

This man should be circumcised w/ a rusty cheese-grater.

Maman July 13, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Talk about your money or your life!

Ducksworthy July 13, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Will bombing Iran make up for the GOP's antisemitism?

weejee July 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Goying, goying, gone.

real_dc_native July 13, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Ah… technically people who populate Iraq are considered Semitic. It's not just us Yids. Pretty much all brownish people of the mid-east.

doloras July 13, 2012 at 9:37 pm

No. "Iran" means "Land of the Aryans" (a name adopted in 1935 by the then-Shah who was a big fan of European fascism). The Persians are Indo-Europeans, just like most white folks except for Hungarians, Finns and Basques.

Chichikovovich July 14, 2012 at 8:05 am

Don't forget the Estonians!

Ducksworthy July 14, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Unfortunately, the fact that bombing Iran would mean bombing blue eyed blond Persian girls is not well understood in Rightwingistan.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:23 pm

Iran. I know it's just a one-letter difference, but it makes all the difference. The Persians aren't Semites.

johnnyzhivago July 13, 2012 at 4:42 pm

I'm having my nails done today for the first time just so I can look down on the nail-lady and tell her how stupid she is for probably supporting Obama.

Angry_Marmot July 13, 2012 at 5:22 pm

You pay now!

SayItWithWookies July 13, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Sure, affordable healthcare seems inocuous — nay, even helpful and cost-effective — now, but just wait until all those whose lives have been made better by the ACA are forced to wear yellow stars and live like rats in a crowded ghetto. It's a slippery slope, people!

edgydrifter July 13, 2012 at 4:44 pm

What he meant was the ACA is exactly like kidnapping people, chaining them up in the bowel of a ship and selling them at auction as chattel. He apologizes for any inadvertent confusion his prior remarks may have caused.

SexySmurf July 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm

He looks like he ate Chris Christie.

Boojum July 13, 2012 at 5:17 pm

In Russia, Chris Christie eat you!

OK, in New Jersey also too.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:24 pm

Other way around. LePage is large, but he's not Chris Christie large.

bobbert July 15, 2012 at 1:10 pm

The planet Jupiter is not Chris Christie large.

EITD: Or as full of gas.

OneYieldRegular July 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm

"What I’m trying to say is that the Holocaust was a horrific crime against humanity and, frankly, I would never want to see that repeated."

Okay, then. Thank you for your frankness, Governor.

LetUsBray July 13, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Uh-oh, looks like someone is challenging Neut Gingrich for the title of King of Frankly.

NYNYNYjr July 13, 2012 at 7:34 pm

I mean, I'm just speaking for myself here, and strictly off the record, but I would never want the holocaust to happen again.

sharethegrief July 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm

You can't be Tea Party leaning. Either you're fucking nuts or you're not.

flamingpdog July 13, 2012 at 4:54 pm

He's leaning because that's not just tea in his tea cup.

weejee July 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Is it true LaPage ties his shoes with little nazis?

Nostrildamus July 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm

I doubt he can reach his shoes.

Billmatic July 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm

I'm with this guy I'm tired of paying taxes for the roads I use, the defense system that I take for granted, the communications network i expect and the peace of mind that comes with a stable, successful government. The IRS is a despotic islamofascist hitleresque stalinist fantasy and I would really appreciate it if my neighbors stopped giving the stinkeye because I want to wear my yellow thong in the front yard.

flamingpdog July 13, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Thanx – you just made me have a mental image of Paul LePage in his front yard wearing a yellow thong.

Billmatic July 13, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Yeah well I drive past a crazy old man in a yellow thong blowing bubbles by the bus stop every day so welcome to my hell.

starfanglednut July 13, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Seriously? Cuz that's fuckin hilarious.

Billmatic July 13, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Well I don't drive past him every day but yes that is one of the many public loonies we have in Austin.

coolhandnuke July 13, 2012 at 5:06 pm

According to the IRS tax code 234 stroke 11 dash 6, you can deduct your banana hammock on your IRS 1040EZ–short form or long form.

FlownOver July 13, 2012 at 4:47 pm

So the police arresting drunk drivers are just like the Gestapo, because they're enforcing A LAW. To say nothing of taking away our freedom to risk the lives of all other drivers.

I mean, where can a guy go for some FREEDOM these days?

va_real July 13, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Somalia?

Billmatic July 13, 2012 at 5:12 pm

I think they're going to Canada to get away from socialized medicine. I saw it on the twitters.

In today's America, you may invoke the Gestapo, the SS, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, all day for any purpose, just don't dare say that Tri** is re***ded.

LePage and Sheriff Joe separated at birth….reunited by birthers.

This happened because Hitler took away everyone's guns.

No, it's teh gheyz fault, duh.

neiltheblaze July 13, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Be kind. Just remember. Governor LePage is someone's husband – someone's father – someone's embarrassing Thanksgiving uncle.

LetUsBray July 13, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Today, Governor LePage is embarrassing Thanksgiving uncle to all of us.

widestanceromance July 13, 2012 at 5:09 pm

He's someone to someone else who wishes he was not, but he's really no one to everyone else (or what). My brain hurts.

bobbert July 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

As I recall, he is the father of a young lady who just happened to get a State O' Maine jerb shortly after he was elected.

fuflans July 13, 2012 at 4:56 pm

i thought maine was one of the sane ones.

rickmaci July 13, 2012 at 5:05 pm

You're thinking of New Hampshire.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Wha?!

BTW, it's Vermont, definitely Vermont.

va_real July 13, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Are there any sane ones left? Vermont, maybe?

starfanglednut July 13, 2012 at 6:12 pm

MA, except for the Scott Brown thing.

ImpureScience July 13, 2012 at 6:54 pm

It generally is. LePage was elected in a 3-way with only 38.1% of the vote.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:29 pm

LePage was elected in a 3-way

That's what she said.

docterry6973 July 13, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Gov. LePage might have eaten a little too much paste when he was a tyke.

Lead paste.

Paste from his own glue factory?

Blueb4sunrise July 13, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Is there a Maine Wonketteerand who will make chalk graffiti on the the Gov's mansion , for FREEDOM!!!!?????????????????????????

Sassomatic July 13, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Oh man, he walked that back to admit that the IRS is not *quite* as bad as the Gestapo? In the eyes of the Tea Party, this is an act of treason right up there the John Roberts' turncoat failure to toe the party line on Obamacare.

qwerty42 July 13, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I kinda think that learning everything you know about World War 2 and Nazi Germany from old war movies does not actually teach you anything about either WW2 or the Nazis. The Gestapo were not "mean guys", they were sadistic, brutal thugs. Just seeing the ruins of their former headquarters on Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse gives you the creeps if you have any knowledge of the organization (you can see the cellar — the cellar of Gestapo headquarters — nice thought). When you have no idea what these organizations were, you can toss off "Nazi", "Gestapo", even "NKVD" because the terms have absolutely no meaning to you. Except for what you "learned" in old movies when you were a kid. And you still think that way.
Cripes.
Apologies, before I got into the field I'm in now, I did history. Especially Central and Eastern Europe. Things did not end well.
Perhaps I will join some friends for a drink after work.

Tax hater is a tax cheat and freeloader. He owns two homes; one in Maine, one in Florida; declares them both personal residences and takes exemptions in both states, but lives in Maine; daughter claims, and pays, in-state tuition in Florida.

Mumbletypeg July 13, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Lord that man's neck is thick. Give him a beaver-butt haircut and send him to the Lizard Lick set. They could use a cranky grampster type, the show is seriously lacking in an Uncle Jesse or Granny Hillbilly elder spare for spitting nails.

Oh yeah, that was the 70s. People were still nimble and fit on into their golden years, back then. But when the Museum for Artifacts of Homophobic Heritage opens for business finally I'm sure this lumpy grump will fit right in.

Dr. Nick Riviera July 13, 2012 at 6:35 pm

His neck isn't fat, it's strangulation resistant.

Um, Gov. LePage?… there's a Dr. Mengele on the phone for you, something about health care?….

Is it safe?

Guppy July 13, 2012 at 5:17 pm

“It was never intended to offend anyone,” he said on camera. “And if someone’s offended, then they ought to be goddamn mad at the federal government.”

Attention "journalists:"

The preceding quote is a "statement," a "comment," perhaps even a "response." But this is, in no way, shape, or form, an "apology." This isn't even among the "I'm sorry you're offended" bullshit.

LetUsBray July 13, 2012 at 5:18 pm

What is it with these people comparing EVERYthing they don't like to the Nazis?

"How are your eggs, dear?" "Chewy. Worse than Hitler". "And how did you sleep?" "It was too humid; like the SS."

I can't believe I'm the only one who thinks this is fucking hilarious. Best comment in group. You and I must share a unique sense of humor. Thanks.

There are many Jews in Maine. They both live in Auburn.

Veritas78 July 13, 2012 at 6:43 pm

Right next door to the many blahs, of which there's a whole houseful.

Dashboard Buddha July 13, 2012 at 10:52 pm

You kid, but I once landscaped a Jewish brain surgeon's lawn in Auburn. He was a total douchebag…not because he was Jewish, but because when you reach such a rarefied level of skill, it makes you think that you everything about every trade and then behave accordingly.

Chichikovovich July 14, 2012 at 8:14 am

As I've learned living with a physician, surgeons tend to have a bit of a reputation among other physicians for that kind of thing.

Negropolis July 14, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Well, that and the whole god complex thing, to boot. I'd expect it to be particularly pronounced with a brain surgeon.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:32 pm

And, right next door to the Mexican Mainers.

James Michael Curley July 13, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Why are obese republican governors so oblivious to people needing health care coverage reform?

Because the suckers are signed on to lifetime care merely because they got a few more votes then their opponents.

Picture Nicholson dressing down Christie and LePage as ordinary citizens, "You want Health Care? You can't afford Health Care."

TribecaMike July 13, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Waitress: You want me to hold the tub of lard?

LePage: I want you to hold it between your knees.

Chichikovovich July 14, 2012 at 8:15 am

That's one easy piece of birth control advice. What are the other four?

NYNYNYjr July 13, 2012 at 7:30 pm

The IRS hardly does anything— also, as per the Daily Show explication of the law- the bil stated that the penalty will not be enforced. Apparently it was written that if you don't pay the i-dont-want-healthcare fine, nothing happens.

Dashboard Buddha July 13, 2012 at 10:49 pm

They could take it out of your refund…oh, the humanity!

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:34 pm

Oh god, not the refund!

The IRS: History's greatest monster.

SigDeFlyinMonky July 13, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Well, after all, you can't spell Gestapo without GOP!

Dashboard Buddha July 13, 2012 at 10:53 pm

My friends and I try to comfort each other by saying at least he's not Chris Christie (R- Cruller), but that's starting to wear thin.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:05 pm

used his official weekly radio address

This is crazy. I thought he'd made the comment in passing. He actually prepared this remark and delivered it on his official weekly radio address.

You know, I think I know what's up. The tea party knows that they are a passing fad, that their election was largely a mistake, that re-election was never likely for them, so they are just going to unleash their craziness all at once.

Negropolis July 13, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Someone is looking to be audited, aren't they? I'm glad I'm not president. I'd be so petty. I order them to go through his money with a fine-toothed comb.

Yes you rich pasty fuck the IRS is like the Gestapo because OCCASSIONALLY they ask you to part with a small amount of your illgotten sweet, sweet grifter money for roads and schools and stuff…real final solution-like. I swear to god Americans are the biggest bunch of whiners in the entire world…okay, not all Americans, but these fucks for sure. I remember studying Russian history and being impressed with the resiliance of the Russian people to handle one shitbag government after another and still keep trucking. These fucks cry like a bitch with a skinned knee at the prospect of paying 3% extra of the millions of dollars they make by moving money, not creating anything or actually working..just insider trading. Which is why I'm glad the cold war never went hot…I have absolutely no illusions that with a nation of these fucks Russia would have kicked our lilly-livered asses…unless black people saved us. Pasty whining fucks…and I feel better.

New IRS billboard "Despite what you've heard, we're not the Gestapo. That's the FBI, They try harder."

Obamacare isn't as bad as hitting yourself with a hammer.

Also.

Yes, because comparing systemic murder of a religious group [Holocaust] to a systemic health care program is right on target.
