Democrat candidate's war on women in Maine

The Democratic candidate for governor of Maine, Michael Michaud, is promoting a vile and insulting rap song directed at Republican Senator Susan Collins. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

A video promoted by Maine Democratic gubernatorial candidate Michael Michaud features the rap song “King of Maine,” which calls for Maine’s prominent Republican Sen. Susan Collins to give everyone “brain,” a term known to mean oral sex.

The song is by Maine rapper Spose, and the controversial rhyme directly targets Maine’s senior senator in a quite inappropriate way, according to the Maine Wire.

“I’m the King of Maine, I’ve got Susan Collins giving everyone brain,” raps Spose, who often refers to himself as the King of Maine.

The lewd comment can be heard slightly before the 2:00 minute mark of the video, which is called “On the Road with Mike Michaud.”

Both Michaud and his campaign director Tweeted out the video, thereby endorsing and distributing it.

Richard Baehr notes:

Michaud, a Democratic Congressman from Maine's second district (northern Maine) is ahead by a few points in a very close race with incumbent Republican Governor LePage. Michaud came out as gay in the last year or two, which is relevant, given the new story out today. Susan Collins is very popular in the state. She will get re-elected with 60% or more of the vote this year, as Olympia Snowe did every time she ran. The state is 55-60% Democratic in most years, and the Michaud-LePage race is close due to third party independent Eliot Cutler, who almost won in 2010, and is pulling 15% or more of the vote this year. This attack on Collins could damage Michaud and aid Cutler, which helps LePage.

Unbelievably, a report from a Maine resident tells us, “The sad fact is that the local news media is trying to turn it around and make the Republican Party look bad  for attacking Michaud regarding the video." 

In other words, blaming  Michaud for hanging out with this jerk is really homophobia, and guilt by association. 

I remember when Mitt Romney was criticized for referring to “binders full of women” in his efforts to recruit females for appointive office. That was somehow beyond the pale of appropriateness. But a Democrat can promote a vile video attacking a woman, and any criticism by Republicans is insensitive.

Beam me up, Scotty, there’s no intelligent life on this planet.
