President LePage?

“The effort to draft Gov. Paul LePage for the White House began in Cochise County, Arizona.” That’s what the history books will say if one anonymous, self-described “hardcore Conservative” from that border county gets his wish.

See the blog post here.

These are the kinds of things that cross your email stream when you have a Google alert for the governor’s name. I’m gonna let it slide that the blogger referred to Waterville as “Watertown.”

EDIT: The blogger mentioned above first heard about LePage from a viral email praising the governor, which has been found to contain a mixture of truth and fiction by fact-checking website
