Comments for: Will Maine politics, LePage, change with retreat of two longtime political personalities?

Posted Nov. 28, 2012, at 1:37 p.m.

Less than 48 hours after the polls closed on Nov. 6, Mainers knew that two of the state’s most polarizing political figures for more than two decades, Rep. John Martin, D-Eagle Lake, and Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster, would be stepping back from the fray, at least for now. …

    I’m especially happy with the departure of Webster although he doesn’t appear to be leaving quietly.

    Good riddance to the pair of them. LePage should take a hint and follow suit.

    I am VERY VERY sorry to see Looney Tooney Webster go. He is the gift that just kept on giving to the Democratic Party this year and to progressives last year with all his anti-voter nonsense. That boy truly is delusional. He needs a psychiatric evaluation in a BIG way. Too bad he couldn’t stick around to make sure that no Republican will be elected dog catcher in 2014. But then again, the R’s still have LeBUFFOON to fill that role. It’ll be a cold day in you-know-where before that goofball ultra-maroon gets re-elected. And of course we have PILLS Limbaugh, Bill O’LIElly, and FAKE NOISE and all the TeaGoofies who together will make sure the TeaPublican Party remains the pathetic JOKE that it is.

    All these comments about Webster and LePage, yet Martin was the most corrupt of them all. The bias here is laughable. What do you have on LePage, words, wow and a mural.

      Agreed… Martin by far is the one who really needed to go and now what the BDN has not covered for years about him is starting to come out…too little too late and sad day for news media in the state who refuse to actually do a story when one of their Dem friends is in power…

      Not just words – hurtful words – ridiculous words – words that make Maine a national laughingstock – words that kept him from becoming a productive governor. For that, regardless of party, all Maine citizens suffer.

  • It’s not just what one does, it’s how they do it. Show respect, get respect. Show disrespect, be shown the door. That’s how it should work.

    LePage knows his days are numbered, whether he adopts a more laid back approach or not. He’s shown all his cards. The boy has cried wolf.
