Maine Minutiae:Gov. LePage to NAACP: 'Kiss my butt'; NAACP Cries Raaaaacist!

 The whole country is abuzz about the latest Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, as well it should be. Governor Christie is standing up to powerful political forces such as teachers' unions and is basically telling them to fuck off, to the delight of Conservatives, and it's driving the Liberals crazy, again much to the delight of Conservatives.

He Ain't Skeered
Here in Maine, we just elected a new Conservative Governor named Paul LePage. The good Gov is already pissing off the local Liberals with his actions and the guy has been in office less than two weeks! Go, Gov, go! Some Liberal women's group, The Squawking Hens Club or something, has its collective panties in a wad because Governor LePage has yet to name a woman to commissioner's position (I think that means a cabinet level job). There are fifteen such jobs and the first seven have been filled by men, which causes the women's group to squawk like a bunch of old hens. Nevermind the fact that the Governor has several women on his staff as advisors. The Squawking Hens' Club is already calling the Gov a misogynist. He told them in a polite way to kiss his ass, or go lay another egg or something like that. I like this guy! That's not, however, the reason for this post.

Now Governor LePage is a raaaaacist (!) There are always five "a's" in raaaaacist, by the way. He has done gone and made the NAACP mad! In less than two weeks after being sworn in, LePage has pissed off the Squawking Hens Club and the race baiters! How great is that? During a recent event in Sanford, Maine, the Governor said of the NAACP, "They are a special interest. End of story...and I'm not going to be held hostage by special interests. And if they want, they can look at my family picture. My son happens to be black, so they can do whatever they'd like about it," said LePage. LePage has an adopted son who is from Jamaica." LePage - 1  Liberal Colored People - 0. Governor LePage was asked a question about this matter. "When LePage was asked if his non-participation is more than one instance, and rather a pattern, he replied, "Tell 'em to kiss my butt. If they want to play the race card, come to dinner and my son will talk to them." This guy is great! During the recent campaign, LePage said that President Obama can go to hell. This, too, tweaked the Liberals pansy feelings.

The reason the Governor would be attending the NAACP event for MLK Day on Monday? He is attending the funeral of a Maine State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty. It must be a white cop, thus the raaaaacist canard. One more a private citizen LePage has given the Welcome Address to the NAACP on four occasions, most recently in 2008. I'm with the Governor on this one. The NAACP can kiss my ass.
