Right Wing Extremist on LePage Transition Team

In a posting that will shock nobody who actually took five minutes to think about what a LePage governorship would mean, I'd like to point to an excellent expose of LePage transition member Pete Harring.

"LePage, a conservative Republican, has been taken heat for appointing Pete Harring to his transition advisory team. Harring, also known as Pete The Carpenter, is a leader of the Tea Party groups the Maine Refounders and Paint Maine Red, and is known for posting on Paint Maine Red that "liberals are like slinkys and that's because they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs."

How surprising that LePage would appoint, basically, a professional troll to his transition team, a man whose sole raison d'etre is pissing off liberals. What exactly are Harring's qualifications? Well, beyond "pissing off liberals," not a one.

Folks, it's going to be a LONG four years.
