Candidate Paul LePage Video: Read Letter on Back?

While walking by the side of the road today here in Maine, I encountered the following campaign sign for Paul LePage, a Republican candidate for Governor.

A bewilderingly unclear campaign sign might be better for Paul LePage than a crystal clear one: LePage, after all, has been bizarrely calling for the insertion of creationism into the public school curriculum. Odder still is his declaration that yes, even after the disaster of the BP Deepwater Horizon spill, he’d support opening up the waters off Maine (big economic engines: tourism and fisheries) to drilling for oil. Given those stances, a little obfuscation might be just the thing to gain votes.

    Those are posters that the campaign was handing out. Someone stapled two of them together to make a sign!! Now thats dedicated support. In a grassroots campaign every penny counts.

      Uh, CT, it’s also a very poor piece of communication that creates an impression of a confused campaign. Looks like the Paul LePage campaign can’t quite get its act together.

      If they were posters, they were polyvinyl outdoor posters. And they don’t make sense as posters, either: the back would go up on a wall.

    THIS STATE OF MAINE & OUR COUNTRY IS SUFFERING THE FALLOUT OF A MORAL DECAY WIDESPREAD. NOW MATTER HOW YOU SLICE IT, IT HAS HURT OUR CHILDREN, OUR PEOPLE AND OUR COUNTRY PRESENT & FUTURE. OUR SCHOOLS ARE A DISGRACE, AND NOT BECAUSE THEY DON’T GET ENOUGH MONEY. MONEY WILL NOT REPAIR THE PROBLEMS OF THE SCHOOLS. IF PAUL LEPAGE IS FOR THE TEACHING OF CREATIONISM IN OUR SCHOOLS, AND DOES NOT BELIEVE IN ABORTION, THEN HE’S ON THE RIGHT PATH. WHAT HONOR OR PRIDE IS DIRIVED FROM BEING TOLD YOU CAME FROM MONKEYS? WHAT VALUE DOES A CHILD FIND IN HIMSELF, AFTER HEARING THAT? DOES THAT CHILD WALK AWAY FEELING, THAT HE IS AN IMPORTANT PERSON THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOCIETY, AND HAS A PURPOSE? NO, OF COURSE HE DOESN’T. WHEN A CHILD IS TAUGHT THAT HE OR SHE HAS A DIVINE PURPOSE IN THIER LIVES, THEY THEN FEEL A DIRECTION IN LIFE, AND REALIZE THEY HAVE A RESPONIBILITY TO MAKE THIER LIVES COUNT. ADDITIONALLY, OUR SCHOOLS SHOULD BE TEACHING AMERICAN HISTORY, SO OUR CHILDREN WILL LEARN FOR OUR COUNTRIES MISTAKES & SUCCESSES. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, IF PAUL LEPAGE IS FOR TRADITIONAL FAMILY VALUES & MARRIAGE, AGAIN HE IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE. THESE VALUES ARE CRITICAL TO THE FUTURE OF OUR PEOPLE AND EXISTANCE. UNTIL PEOPLE IN THIS CONFUSED COUNTRY REALIZE THIS, OUR COUNTY WILL FLOUDER. MEANWHILE OUR ENEMIES PLAN THIER NEXT MOVE, AND WE ARE SO FOOLISH WE ARE NOT SEEING IT, AS IT HAPPENS. WE ARE DEBATING THE MEANING OF “IS”.
    *****BEST OF LUCK PAUL LEPAGE! SPEAK WITH CONFIDENCE, AUTHORITY & TRUTH, AND YOU WON’T LET US DOWN!
