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

Did 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. Read more on Maine Gov.

New Hampshire House Majority Leader Will Keep Resigning Until He Gets It Right

Maine New Hampshire House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt is super sorry he is such a lying shitweasel, and also so very lazy and slothful and piggish (all three). And in Maine New Hampshire, apparently, making up 11 weeks worth of detailed entries for the law internship you only actually spent one hour on is enough to get you dragged screaming from your lofty perch in the Maine New Hampshire leadership! At least when the law internship is with J. Brandon Giuda, a fellow Republican who, weirdly, does not resemble the crusty old coot we imagined when picturing the kind of Mainer New Hampshirite who would force a fellow GOPpy to resign from the House over pathologically lying his way through a little paperwork. Anyway, Giuda saw a Facebook picture of Bettencourt graduating from law school, and he had himself a righteous holy snit. FACEBOOOOOK!!!! He demanded Bettencourt resign from the House for “personal reasons,” and then fink on himself to the law school; instead of placing blame on himself and his “personal problems,” though, Bettencourt blamed the resignation on his upcoming wedding. Giuda was not nearly satisfied with such a weaselly resignation, one that sought to hide how “dishonorable” he was, and made Bettencourt resign again.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage To Unemployed Shiftless Slobs: Get Off The Couch

Maine Gov. Paul LePage looks like Chris Christie, sounds like Harvey Fierstein, and speaks the words fed him by Grover Norquist, and that is a winning combination if we have ever seen/heard one! He is ready to “starve the beast,” and he has some Tough Talk for all you unemployed Cadillac queens who are sucking the state of Maine dry. Hey, Mainers, stop “picking up the tab” for these losers’ “free lunch”! But is Maine Gov. Paul LePage a compassionate man? Indeed, he is! “I am compassionate and committed to our children, our elderly, and our disabled,” he told the Maine Republican Convention, “but to all able-bodied people out there, get off the couch and get yourself a job!” [WILD APPLAUSE] Maine Gov. Paul LePage, it seems, is running for Vice President! That is so exciting for him! Read more on Maine Gov. Paul LePage To Unemployed Shiftless Slobs: Get Off The Couch…

Olympia Snowe Waited By The Phone For Years For Obama’s Call

Very grumpy Maine senator and recent quitter Olympia Snowe is not gone yet, sadly. First she must say that the reason why she is quitting politics is because President Obama made her feel rejected and ignored. In an interview with ABC, she scolds the President for being aloof, which he, duh, is, and which everyone else has long gotten over, and say that in her centuries-long reign in legislative land, Obama is the president who spoke with her the least. ABC News claims that “If there were ever a Republican for President Obama to work with, it was Maine Senator Olympia Snowe,” but uh, it turns out that Obama tried a zillion times to get the woman to listen to him, and her response was to act like some kind of perfect moderate Queen of America!

Big Election Wins For Libs Obama Had Nothing To Do With Still About Obama

OMG CRAZED LIBTARD GODZILLA ATE WINGNUTS FOR LUNCH (and then had horrible indigestion). Scenes from the massacre yesterday: Kochsucker thug John Kasich’s Ohio union-busting law was demolished; in Mississippi, the criminally insane anti-abortion “personhood” amendment was shredded, a new GOP-sponsored Maine law banning Election Day registration went up in flames, Republicans got hammered in Kentucky, and even in crazy old teatard Arizona it was the Arizona equivalent of ten thousand free state-sponsored abortions because “God hates browns” law-sponsor nutter state Senator Russell Pearce got a big recall face punch. What fun! Although really, GODZILLA is just thousands upon thousands of ordinary angry voters who are sick of insane conservative lawmakers. But this story cannot possibly really be about them, can it? Read more on Big Election Wins For Libs Obama Had Nothing To Do With Still About Obama…

Maine GOP Warns Voter Registration Is Evil Homosexual Plot

The loony hillbillies of the Maine GOP have had a hard time convincing residents to back them in their opposition to a statewide referendum measure that would permit Election Day voter registration, so their latest strategy has them running ads ominously informing the citizenry IN SCREAMING ALL CAPS that anyone who supports the measure, known as “Question 1,” is in fact a flaming member of Team Homo, because voting rights are super gay. Real heterosexuals hate democracy. Read more on Maine GOP Warns Voter Registration Is Evil Homosexual Plot…

U.S. Labor Dept. Wants Money It Gave Maine For Mural Torn Down By Teabagger Gov. Paul LePage

Remember that “labor-themed mural” in the Maine Department of Labor headquarters that wingnut teabagger Paul LePage ordered removed, because his administration hates Maine’s working families? The U.S. Department of Labor says Gov. Paul LePage violated the terms of a federal grant when he removed a labor-themed mural from a state office building last month. Now the federal government, which paid most of the mural’s $60,000 cost, wants its money back. Read more on U.S. Labor Dept. Wants Money It Gave Maine For Mural Torn Down By Teabagger Gov.

Maine Governor Broke Law By Removing and Hiding Labor Mural

Teabagger-piglet Paul LePage, who somehow became governor of Maine this year despite winning just 38% of the vote, has been aggressively trying to destroy the public worker unions as per his instructions from the Tea Party (Koch Industries). Just to make sure everyone knew he was going to be an incredible jackass in this attack on the people of Maine, LePage decided the labor history mural in the state’s Department of Labor building was, well, labor oriented. And everybody (Koch Industries) knows that’s a very bad thing, for American workers to be fairly compensated for their labor. So portly wingnut Paul LePage had this 36-foot-long mural ripped out, and then he hid it in an “undisclosed location,” and now it turns out he illegally violated the terms of the contract with the mural’s artist.

Maine’s New Teabagger Governor Axes Labor Mural From Dept. of Labor

Still don’t believe it’s a full-on war against workers? It is: “Gov. Paul LePage has ordered the removal of a 36-foot mural depicting Maine’s labor history from the lobby of the Department of Labor. Worker advocates described the move as a ‘mean-spirited’ provocation amid the administration’s high-tension standoff with unions.” LePage is the new GOP/Tea Party governor who squeaked into office with 38% of the vote. And, like Scott Walker and another dozen Kochsuckers waging class war against American Workers from the statehouses, LePage is trying to break up what’s left of the unions and push everybody down to poverty just like his corporate backers want. No rights for workers, and to hell with anyone who complains — unless by “anyone” you mean “a billionaire industrialist who writes nice fat checks, for liberty libertarians.” Read more on Maine’s New Teabagger Governor Axes Labor Mural From Dept. of Labor…

Olympia Snowe Could Decide Outcome of Huge Gay Senate Showdown

Today the Senate will vote on whether to begin talking about the possibility of maybe repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Don’t get too excited, because nobody expects this cataclysmic measure to actually pass. And why should it? The Senate is not an appropriate place to be having these sorts of discussions. But thankfully Lady Gaga got herself a new hairdo and then held a rally in Maine, in hopes of talkin’ turkey with Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins — two Republicans who might possibly be “persuaded” to help the Democrats defeat the anticipated Republican filibuster. (Lady Gaga wore the turkey on her naked body, and then Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins took turns nibbling.)

Tea Party ‘Movment’ Ready To Mov America Forward

The teabaggers are putting the “red” back in “lobster” here at the Maine Lobsterback Festival! Sadly, they are taking the “e” out of “Movement,” because the letter E is brought to you by Socialism. Thanks to Wonkette operative “Ablington,” who says, “I am half hoping that the guy at Kinko’s who made their banner did this on purpose, but the Maine Tea Party is just probably that stupid.” Read more on Tea Party ‘Movment’ Ready To Mov America Forward…

‘Impromptu Barry Ice Cream Contest’ Inspires Racist Fantasy Flavors

The iOwnTheWorld.com jokey blog asked its readership to come up with some ice cream flavors in honor of Barack Obama, who recently enjoyed some socialist revolutionary ice cream at a Black Panther Party-run free dessert shoppe in Maine. And now they have some winners: ”Baracky Road w/ Marxmallows,” followed by the uppity-sounding “Chocolate Chip on His Shoulder” and a pool of “runner-ups” that includes “dumb raisin” and Grandpa Cracker’s very special “Reggie’s Fudge” (who’s Reggie?). The winner gets a free guest blog post where they can make more cool summertime treats/racisms and generate comments about inventions like “watermelon oreo slush,” which sounds terrible on more than one level.

Traitor Republicans Help Democrats Almost Pass Financial Regulation

The cloture vote, it has happened! It passed with 60 votes and those 60 votes included Former Teabagger Hero/New Ted Kennedy Scott Brown. And that means the Senate will vote “for reals” on the Financial Regulation legislation, today. Is Scott Brown turning out to be kind of awesome? Compared to alleged Democrats like Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman and especially Russ Feingold (who joined 37 Republicans today in voting No), Scott Brown is looking like somebody who might regularly support middle-of-the-road Nobama stuff. And are Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins even legally Republicans, being from Communist Maine? Read more on Traitor Republicans Help Democrats Almost Pass Financial Regulation…

Insane Maine GOP Conventioneers Also Search, Vandalize Classroom

Earlier this week we learned that the Maine GOP, during its state convention, replaced its standard platform with a hilarious four-page teabagger e-mail that one local reporter could only describe as “a mix of right-wing fringe policies, libertarian buzzwords and outright conspiracy theories.” It turns out, though, that this was only the second most comical thing that the teabaggers did during the convention. Some folks, while caucusing in a rented classroom at the nearby middle school, got it in their heads that the classroom’s teacher was a commie liberal indoctrinating the children with commie liberalism, and so they just dug through all of his stuff and trashed the place.

Maine GOP Platform Hijacked By Teabaggers In Comical Fashion

Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins must be looking forward to their next primary seasons with such enthusiasm! “An overwhelming majority of delegates to the Maine Republican convention tonight voted to scrap the the proposed party platform and replace it with a document created by a group of Tea Party activists.” This document is called The Bible. No, it is called something else, but it is basically a copy-paste of The Bible: “The official platform for the Republican Party of Maine is now a mix of right-wing fringe policies, libertarian buzzwords and outright conspiracy theories.” Read more on Maine GOP Platform Hijacked By Teabaggers In Comical Fashion…

Stop Those Gay Teachers In Maine From Making The Gay Kids Come Out!

The latest anti-gay ad in Maine, produced by a paranoid schizophrenic on meth, features random documents with bureaucratic titles and pulled phrases flying around the screen at warp speed, to Warn us. The gay teachers in Maine are all going to come out and then force the gay children — you know, the quiet little boys who play with dolls in the sandbox at recess — to come out with them.

Maine Is Also Gay Now

Whoa hey gay marriage in Maine now too! While both chambers of the Maine legislature had passed the bill, no one knew if Gov. John Baldacci would sign it because, you know, gays, culture war, wedge issues, etc. But then this morning he did sign it! He explained: “In the past, I opposed gay marriage while supporting the idea of civil unions. I have come to believe that this is a question of fairness and of equal protection under the law, and that a civil union is not equal to civil marriage.” And that’s about all there is to say.

U.S. Nazi Trust-Fund Millionaire Was Building Dirty Radioactive Anti-Obama Bomb, But His Wife Shot Him Dead, First

Whoa hey how’d the Entire News Media miss this one? Especially considering the main things we all jabber about, these days, are stock prices and whatever Jon Stewart said about Jim Cramer …. Anyway, get out your duct tape because a certified American Nazi was building a “dirty bomb” which he apparently planned to explode at Obama’s Inauguration. All the radioactive and bomb-making shit was in his house — you know, the one with the Nazi Flag, in Maine — and his plans were moving along just fine until his wife shot the motherfucker dead, the end?
