The great state to our south. Its recent gubernatorial election has pretty much trashed its reputation, even among Floridians. Here is a quote from Washington Monthly.
There's just something remarkable about the scope of Maine Gov. Paul LePage's (R) buffoonery. Part of it has to do with expectations -- Florida's Rick Scott (R) is every bit as ridiculous, but it's Florida, so expectations are lower. Maine, however, as states go, appears to be quite sane.
Always remember: in a two party system not to vote is voting for the guys that win. You wanted them, you got them.
you should hear my 91 year old mother on the subject of her state's new governor. She always did make more sense than the rest of the family.
