The governor of Maine (a state I'd always considered kinda staid and definitely sane) is a nutjob of epic proportions. But at least he's unbagged a cat whose condition was deducible from the start. Said he:
“Sometimes I wonder that our Constitution is not only broken, but we need a Donald Trump to show some authoritarian power in our country and bring back the rule of law,” LePage said in the interview. “We’ve had eight years of a president — he’s an autocrat — he just does it on his own, he ignores Congress, and every single day we’re slipping into anarchy.”So the problem today's Republican party has had with Barack Obama is not that he's acted like an autocrat (a common if ridiculous claim) but that he's the wrong autocrat. Not their autocrat.
And if you think, well, Gov. LePage (isn't that glue?) is just speaking for himself, what is it about Donald Trump's "message" that his flock are cheering on? It sure as hell isn't because he's a constitutionalist.
