Maine Gov. LePage losing the support of some GOP Senators
Eight GOP Senators published an op-ed asking him to tone it down. Interesting read.

"Were these isolated incidents, we would bite our collective tongues, because we are all human and make mistakes," the piece reads. "But, unfortunately, they are not isolated but frequent. Therefore, we feel we must speak out."

"We are not the enemy of labor and labor is certainly not an enemy to us."

2. This sends a great message to the People of Maine....
...and to the People of America. We should welcome any Republicans ready to renounce what their party has become.

4. Thank God, there just might be some rational Republicans left
in this country. I was beginning to believe they
had all lost their minds.

9. Great post by Agio in the Comments section

"Maine GOP is upset with LePage for breaking the fundamental rule of GOP politics: you must *pretend* to be a friend to the working man as you're figuring out the best way to steal his lunch, break his fingers, and send him to the poorhouse."

10. LePage is the product of voter apathy and
the failure to allow un-enrolled voters to participate in the primaries up heyuh. Open primaries, for both parties, would drastically change the political landscape in November...YMMV
