Maine Governor Compares Democratic Budget Plan to Anal Rape

In what is not exactly a politically correct statement, by his own admission, Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) characterized Democratic Lawmakers as raping Mainers. Regarding getting funding, he claims Sen. Troy Jackson, specifically, has been a pain in the butt.

“Sen. Jackson claims to be for the people, but he’s the first one to give it to the people without providing Vaseline.” Hardly gentlemanly of Jackson, as anybody would admit, but the governor kind of cursed to himself after making the comment and said, “That comment is not politically correct, but we’ve got to understand who this man is. This man is a bad person. He doesn’t only have no brains, he has a black heart.” And I think anybody would agree that being anally raped by a brainless person with a black heart would be an especially difficult position to be in, especially lacking Vaseline.


The remarks were caught exclusively by WMTW News 8, and the bland-voiced interviewer finished it up by saying that his comment was probably going to offend some people – being squeamish, apparently, about the prospect of anal rape — to which the governor exclaimed, “Good! It ought to because I’ve been taking it for two years.” Apparently, his time as governor has come with its fair share of pain and misery from bipartisan knife-fighting, to choose a more polite metaphor.

Jackson, for his part, told WMTW News “Stamping his feet and making these type of comments doesn’t do anything to help the people of the State of Maine and I’m 44 years old and I understand that that’s not the way that you do things if you’re going to be an elected official.” It was useful for him to clarify that he was 44 years old to assure us that he has the authority to judge anal rape metaphors as inappropriate for political discussion; somebody of lesser years might have lacked such insight.

But LePage is full of them. He suggested the unemployed people “get off the couch and get a job,” – which might not have otherwise occurred to them; he characterized the IRS as “the new Gestapo,” – though they aren’t exactly new; and he said he wanted to undo Maine’s child labor laws – which would at least show the young ingrates the value of a buck. And so LePage is a card, to put it nicely, and anybody who has attained the ripe old age of 44 can see that.
