So,...Mike Michaud is Gay.


Up here in Maine, we've been governed by temper tantrum and bullying since January of 2011. Our quality of life, education and environment have suffered while our "business friendly" teabagger chief executive, who entered office with a whopping 38% of the vote, has failed miserably in creating any significant number of quality jobs. While doing this, he has managed to make Maine a laughing stock nationally nearly every time he's opened his mouth. He has publicly expressed the same contempt for 47% of Maine people that his boy Willard Romney holds.

His wife claims Florida as her main residence.

I haven't always agreed with all of Mike's votes, but he has ALWAYS represented us with honor and integrity. I believe that he will do his utmost to make Maine be, again,the wonderful place that my wife and I decided to make our home when we were on our honeymoon.

A few days ago, before I knew he was gay, I supported Mike Michaud for Governor of Maine with enthusiasm and passion.

Today, knowing that he is gay, I support Mike Michaud for Governor of Maine with enthusiasm and passion.

He continues to show the cowards who try to smear him with push polls and whispering campaigns just EXACTLY what a real man is.

I am more proud of Mike Michaud today than I have ever been...and that's saying something!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!
