Maine’s functionally illiterate idiot Gov. Paul LePage flapped his face hole again, and that never works out well for him.
Earlier this month, he was sorry not sorry OK maybe a little sorry but not really for saying “guys by the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty […] come from CT and NY, they come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home.” Oh, and, “incidentally” (what a big word for a half-wit governor) those guys from the Big City “impregnate a young white girl before they leave,” a crime for which the governor threatened, “We’re gonna make ’em very severe penalties.”
The governor thunked on it good, and he came up with some very severe penalties indeed:
“I think the death penalty should be appropriate for people who kill Mainers,” LePage said. “We should give them an injection of the stuff they sell.” […]
“What we ought to do is bring the guillotine back,” he said, interrupting the hosts. “We could have public executions and we could even have which hole it falls in.”
Great plan, governor. Very pro-lifey too. (LePage is of course also “pro-life,” for fetuses only, but we repeat ourselves.) We didn’t listen to his radio interview on WVOM, because we don’t hate ourselves nearly enough for that, so sadly, we cannot confirm whether he thinks we should inject drug traffickers with The Drugs before or after we chop off their heads in the public square. Or whether we will let them choose for themselves. Or whether D-Money et al. should be put to death simply for selling drugs, or only in cases when they money-shot a nice white lady with baby batter before heading down south to the Big Apple. Perhaps it’s yes, all of the above.
Maine, your governor is bad, and you should feel bad. Because he has already offered to fuck off and die in a fire if enough of you send him letters asking him to please fuck off and die in a fire, so you might want to get on that, double quick. Before he really embarrasses your entire state. You know, more.
