Hey Ken -
Not sure if you've seen this. We have a new governor here in Maine. He's far from being polished, not your typical political blow hard....to date.
He's been passing up invitations from the NAACP because he considers them a special interest group. He is not attending any Martin Luther King memorials Monday, but is attending the funeral of a Maine State trooper.
From a local news station:
"When a reporter from another television station asked LePage if his non-participation is more than one instance, and rather a pattern, he replied, "Tell 'em to kiss my butt. If they want to play the race card, come to dinner and my son will talk to them."
LePage's adopted son is black.
Gotta love it!
PS: Maine is the 2nd whitest state, Vermont being #1.
