    ...LePage is also in the pocket of corporate/industrial interests which allows him the money to run and to keep the party loyalist machine Republicans with him. However there must be some erosion in the 37% who elected him for even I suspect there have to be some upright GOP citizens and officials. But they are ever so quiet. Hopefully their pencil marks on the 2014 ballot will be louder!

    Of interest is LePage actually suffered some defections on his right today.

      even if he says crazy things, they are still right wingers and believe in his agenda, so they won't abandon him in significant numbers.

      And many of them agree with the crazy things he says.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
