Michael Heath Running For Governor
Rapture!! It's rare that one gets to watch a train-wreck of such epic idiocy unfold, and I'm thrilled that Heath is giving us the gift of his remaining self-respect to demolish.
For those of you who have never heard of Michael Heath, he's Maine's two-bit answer to Tony Perkins. Or, rather, he was until the Maine Christian Civic League gave him the heave-ho last year.
When your own theocratic pack of reactionary fundamentalists thinks you've become too irritating and polarizing to keep around, I think we can all agree it's a great omen for your gubernatorial prospects. I join everyone in wishing Heath all the luck he deserves trying to scrape together the signatures and cash he'll need to get on the ballot, where (if he makes it) he will be able to siphon the idiot vote away from whichever Republican (including one I would actually vote for) gets that party's nomination.
