Was the NAACP playing the race card? Maybe. But, who’s campaign whined early on that some vague anti-French Yankee campaigners were “pickin’ on him?” Maybe ShaNaNa could perform at the next Republican National Convention. Sarah Palin and Paul LePage would enjoy dancing together to “Charlie Brown.”
But, back to last week’s embarrassment.
I’m assuming the governor is going to tell members of the tea party, the Maine Heritage Foundation, the Maine Chamber of Commerce, and various other conservative, libertarian and pro-business groups, to kiss his butt if they don’t applaud everything he says and complain because their invitations to gatherings are rejected.
LePage is living proof that being a businessman is no guarantee of the ability to govern.
The need to reach out to constituents is lost on managers used to firing those who speak an uncomfortable truth. It’s too bad Maine voters don’t enjoy the right of recall.
A mulligan would be a great idea right now. LePage needs to be returned to Marden’s as defective merchandise.
Before I’m accused of economic bigotry — my father was a businessman; some of my best friends are businessmen. I was a businessman, so I guess I can’t be prejudiced.
