Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) on Thursday went after a Democratic state senator by using a vulgar metaphor involving lubricant.
LePage told reporters that state Sen. Troy Jackson claims to be for the people, but hes the first one to give it to the people without providing Vaseline.
LePage then walked away, later returning to explain his comment.
“That comment is not politically correct,” he said. “But we gotta understand who this man is. This man is a bad person. He doesn’t only have no brains; he has a black heart.”

Then you got Snowe and the other ditz...
Thanks for the reply.
and here i thought this was another senator raging about the IRS
Irony? Seems like in the 1940s, we kids used a little bottle of LePage’s glue, which would do the opposite of Vaseline.
I know it’s not pertinent to the subject, but when you get old thoughts like that just pop into the head.
Governor LaPage has a good chance to be re-elected.
It may very well be a three way race again. Independent Lloyd Cutler is almost certain to run and of course the Democrats will run a candidate as well.
So the Rats are trying to make this into some kind of scandal??? They say far worse about our folks (i.e. Sarah Palin) every day.
Looks like a toup to me.
“someone with a brain come down here and do some good work.
How confidently arrogant of you to suggest that liberals for one have a brain and then to suggest they do good work with it.
Unfortunately, the commies who infest the state have had the long knives out for him from the beginning.
His first term, the governorship and the legislature became Republican for the first time in about 40 years.
Since then, the legislature's flipped back into the commies' hands.
One brief flash of light, now back to entitlement dystopia, what a tragedy.
Or from Full Metal Jacket: “...and not even have the common courtesy to give him a reach around.”
Did LePage have a fued with Easy E, as well?
Are you from Maine? Here in MA, Howie Carr gives us periodic updates about LePage on WRKO. LePage seems like a great guy. But Maine seems to be hopeless, like Massachusetts.
Dude, stay away from Velcro Ceilings....
I have had Troy Jackson in my boat for the day. Liked the guy. When he’s not in the Senate he is sitting on his “skiddah” and cutting trees up in northern Maine. No doubt there has been some pretty colorful language shared by the two men. The hair is real and the guy is more comfortable in Carhartt or Dickies than Brooks Brothers. Politically he and I do not agree but IMO if there have to be Democrats in the legislature I’d take him over most
fair enough thanks, sounds like a honest Dem, we need more of them....
You think he looks funny...you ought to hear him talk.
That comment is not politically correct, but we gotta understand who this man is. This man is a bad person. He doesnt only have no brains; he has a black heart.
You mean like “Baby Huey”?
