(This is Maine-specific, but I thought it might interest people since the subject has come up on DU in recent weeks.)

1. The Republicans used that line to sew discord and make one
group jealous or envious of another. Standard operating
proceedure.

Thank you finding the information which refutes another
"big lie". "Big Lie" being a lie repeated over and over
and over until the public believs it.

2. I'm just glad that they were called on that lie in the media. Granted it's just one small newspaper
but if _every_ state had one or two newspapers that would cover it, it would make a huge difference!

3. I'm willing to bet it's like that across the country.
Of course, facts don't really matter to the Ayn Rand tea bagger types.

4. They find facts to be nuisances.
