R. Caron: Stay out of politics

All Franco-American Mainers, including myself, should feel ashamed of the bizarre behavior of Gov. Paul LePage. If I am not mistaken, LePage is the first Franco-American to be elected governor.

When he was elected, he had a famous mural stripped off the wall of a public building and stashed somewhere secret. He has made many statements that were totally off the wall, such as "they can kiss my butt."

The latest statement, about Vaseline, was way beyond anything a professional person would say.

Saying that he is sorry, to save grace while thinking that all would be forgiven, won't work this time. One does not forget the injuries inflicted by bullies.

If LePage wanted what is best for Maine, he would resign, move back to Waterville and stay out of politics.

In that case, every American

In that case, every American born German should be ashamed of his ancestry because of what Hitler did. Or, to put it in a more current light, every black American should be ashamed his heritage because of what obama is doing to our country.

Poor Pirate...

Completely unaware of the fact that Hitler was an Austrian.......

But he didn't do too bad for having been a corporal in the German Army

Where did the "poor Pirate" state that Hitler had been born a German?
"Didn't do too bad?" Really?
