Ed Mazza on Maine Governor Paul LePage:
The Washington Post delivered the opposite of an endorsement on Tuesday evening, urging Maine Gov. Paul LePage to resign.
The newspaper’s editorial called the Republican politician “completely unhinged” and cited a “three-ring circus of unhinged racism and ravings.”
LePage has consistently targeted minorities with false ― and at times bizarre ― allegations, including a claim that he had a binder full of mug shots showing that 90 percent of drug dealers arrested in the state were black or Hispanic.
Joseph de Maistre (and various translations):
- Every nation gets the government it deserves
- Every country has the government it deserves
- In a democracy people get the leaders they deserve
I suspect that in the U.S. we don’t get what we pay for. We get who we pay for.
