Maine’s out of control, nearly impeached, radical teabagger Governor Paul LePage has made yet another completely asinine, off the wall insane, incongruous-with-reality statement about crime and punishment in his state.
In a radio interview on WVOM-FM, LePage voiced his dismay about legislative proposals that would increase prison terms for drug traffickers – saying they are not harsh enough.
I think the death penalty should be appropriate for people who kill Mainers. We should give them an injection of the stuff they sell.
Because, clearly LePage has never in his life seen the U.S. Constitution, specifically the text of the Eighth Amendment. In the same interview in which he bashed the ACLU, in a paradoxical turn he exhibits exactly why the ACLU is needed.
What we ought to do is bring the guillotine back. We could have public executions and we could even have ‘which hole it falls in.’
Yes, he was implying it would be like a Skee-ball contest of sorts. That’s good old-fashioned family fun. There isn’t anything quite like taking the Misses and little Suzy out to the public execution. . . What. The. Hell. Governor.
This is the latest in the “OMG, WTF did that governor just say” series brought to us this time by the state of Maine. Please stay tuned for future segments which will include Kansas, Florida, New Jersey and Kentucky – oh heck, Donald Trump is currently a front-running candidate for President of the United States – anything is possible at this point!
Earlier this month, LePage made the following statement which landed him in some hot water:
“With the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty — these types of guys — they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home,” LePage said at a town hall event. He added, “Half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave.”
Good grief, Maine. You’re so much better than this. Impeach this bastard and please, please, stay away from the Tea Party. They’re no good for you.
