    Party of family values, right here folks:

    This is on top of his comments earlier this week that 90% of the crime in his state is committed by minorities. And who was Donald Trump hanging out with just recently? Why, Paul LePage, of course. Racists gotta racist.

    Meh, that's par for the course for the Gov of Maine. This guy's the crazy, delusional, racist uncle of New England governors.

    Odd, he's been embarrassing Mainers for almost 6 years now.

    So has America come to a consensus yet on what the problems are and how to fix them?

    I saw this one in the comments section. I guess it must refer to another of his priceless comments.

    Yes, he claimed that black men from out of state were impregnating white women in Maine after selling off the drugs they'd brought in.

    It does. It was something about how black kids are coming up from NY to sell drugs and knock up the Maine women folk.

    Though the governor is an idiot for leaving a voice mail like that, his speech on the black pushers coming into the state and poisoning the residents is not wrong.

    No where does he say anything like all blacks are bad - that's just lib-speak to deflect from the truth of the issues with out of state gangs and drug dealers moving into Maine.

    Where else is Maine supposed to get it's drugs?

    But really, the guy dared him to record the call and go public with it. He's out of control, and should resign for the sake of his health ... if not the health of others.

    Yup. Somehow, it's always the liberals who are wrong no matter what the issue is.

    An idiot for leaving the message, not for saying it. Got it.

    He's an alt-right racist in the image of Trump.

    Did somebody jump on the alt right bandwagon. I heard alt right goes well with synergy.

    Racial synergy, yes.

    So now LePage has no-pologized
    http://www.wmur.com/news/lepage-iss...awmaker-in-obscenityladen-voice-mail/41397042
    and the local paper has also apologized on behalf of Maine for foisting LePage on the nation.
    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/maine-newspaper-apologizes-for-giving-america-paul-lepage

    And Trump is normalizing this kind of behavior. Speaking of who jumped on the alt-right bandwagon, that would be Drumpf. The rest of us aren't jumping on, many of us have known about them since at least the days of GamerGate. We're now calling them out rather than ignoring them because they have taken over one of the two major parties in this country.

    And yes, a lot of Americans are going to check out the alt-right now, and I see they are squealing with glee over it. But I guarantee you more Americans will be horrified by what they see at Breitbart, Stormfront, American Renaissance, etc. than will be attracted to it.

    You built this, republics

    So do you choose to ignore the fact that only 14.1% of drug related arrests in Maine are of blacks?

    Fairly certain they have their own meth labs. Lots of back woods with no paved roads. Gotta fend for yourself.

    I think he's an idiot for both. If you want to talk about serial killers you don't preface it with "almost all of them are white" do you? The entire point he was making is to pin it African Americans and Hispanics, nothing more, nothing less. It was incredibly racist.

    I seriously wonder if LePage has a neurological issue like a tumour or a stroke. Most people in Maine that I have met are fairly level-headed - I can't imagine them electing somebody who behaved like this during a campaign. I do not know this guy, but if he's had a personality change it might be a medical issue. If not, he's seriously nuts.

    He has behaved like this all along.

    This is what blind hatred of an incumbent president or political party leads to. Reasonable people voting for unreasonable people. In saner times there is no way someone like him would get near the governor's mansion or someone like Trump near the White House. We do not live in sane times.
