Maine Governor Paul LePage has found himself in hot water for some racially charged comments he made at a townhall meeting on Wednesday night:
“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home,” LePage told a large crowd. “Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”
He later clarified, after lots of outrage, that he meant “Maine women” not “white women.” Well, that just fixes everything.
Team Blackness also discussed babies, an Alabama chief justice’s attempt to block judges from granting same-sex marriage licenses, and Satan.

I was very happy to give him the benefit of the doubt but then he said “impregnate young white girls”.
What’s with racists and sexual anxiety towards black people?
Now I understand..
Bristol Palin’s abstinence lecture tour wound through Maine at some point.
It’s the natural problem with trying to talk in code all the time; sometimes you slip up and say what you really mean.
Does this mean I could now be impregnated by a drug trafficker “from away”?

Might be assuming a bit much
What do you ecpect from the political party where the katest trending hashtag is #DonaldTrumpWantsToBangHisDaughter,”
I am typing challenged today.
@OzarkHillbilly: Hopefully, it’s not because you’re typing under water.
How’s things in Mizzou?
@Felonius Monk: Just ducky. Guess what I found out today? Under a bill introduced a Republican misogynist from Sleazball MO
Ah feels so proud….
I looked at that and it sounds a bit better when you hear the justification. The idea that lobbyists shouldn’t be allowed to trade sex for favors any more than they’re allowed to trade money for favors seems reasonable. The guy submitting this claims he wants to include it under the existing gifts reporting so they don’t have to create a whole separate reporting system, which is at least plausible.
@OzarkHillbilly: What. The. FCUK.
On the other hand it does imply that there’s value in the world’s oldest profession. Just not a “dollar valuation.”
IOW, lobbyists don’t have to keep separate ledgers of which pols they’re buying and which they’re b#nging? Somehow this sounds far too kind to the pols.
Maybe he’s just afraid that all those “young white girls” ain’t coming back after going … well, you know.
I think that would lead to so.e excellent campaign reporting.
The NRA spent 30 million on the senators re-election campaign, AND had two of its lobbyists banging the senator’s staff!
How about reporting on the sexual practices employed and the satisfaction levels achieved? Surely, that must be of public interest!
Maine women. White women. Yeah, it’s an easy mistake to make. The m and the w are both articulated with the lips, and n and t are both dentals. Plus both words are monosyllables. And…aw, forget it.
Who applies for a job that involves retroediting a guy like that. It’s hard work and long hours, and you’re constantly on call.
Ah, Roy Moore, one of my least favorite human beings. He is Exhibit A in demonstrating just how horrible the voters of Alabama are and just how ignorant they are when it comes to something like separation of Church and State.
