How nice for Maine that we have our very own Rush Limbaugh with Gov. Paul LePage. It really was a bit boring to have a governor who was well-spoken and civil and reasonable for the past eight years.

Now we can get noticed by all kinds of national news outlets and commentators who will put our quiet little state right up there at the top of the news.

While we’re reveling in the notoriety, we might not even notice the loss of rules that protect our resources, or a safety net for the poor and unemployed. And who knows what else is coming?

Mr. “kiss my butt” is just getting started.
