May 9, 2016 By Jack Jodell (in association with gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the superb blog known as FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right-hand column).
Happy Monday, everybody! I hope and trust each of you had an enjoyable Mother’s Day yesterday. Today our podcaster extraordinaire BURR DEMING gives us insight into the fallacies of conservative Republican thought, using arch-conservative Maine governor Paul LePage as a good example. He cites past generations of conservatives’ opposition to federally-mandated seat belts in automobiles as one example of how thoroughly off-base these conservatives are, and also includes a liberal (excuse the pun) number of examples evidenced by this wacko Tea Party-darling of a governor.
In Burr’s own words, “Maine’s naloxone controversy is a portend. The governor’s veto is completely consistent with the emerging Republican ethic.
The Party of Abraham Lincoln sleeps in the Republican past.
The Party of Paul LePage is the vital Republican future.”
