|Connecticut: "Come for the fall|
foliage, stay for the heroin..."
-Governor of Maine Paul LePage
|Now wait, because here comes the shitshow...|
-Words that came out of Maine
Governor Paul LePage's mouth
Why the response offered by the Governor's staff which presumes that everyone who had a problem with LePage's racist remarks will fall for some half-assed misdirection:
|"The Governor is not making comments about race. Race is irrelevant."|
-Peter Steele, LePage's communications director,
apparently using an Old Jedi Mind Trick
|Peter Steele just wants to know|
why you hate children so much?
"What is relevant is the cost to state taxpayers for welfare and the emotional costs for these kids who are born as a result of involvement with drug traffickers. "
-Steele, explaining that
uh...hang on...did he just?
I'm confused, is Peter Steele suggesting that we shouldn't worry about Governor LePage's racism because it's distracting us from the more important issue of caring for hypothetical children that 'young white girls' are having with hilariously named drug dealers? Holy shit, Peter Steele is clearly some kind of spin wizard.
