The University of Southern Maine student who said Tuesday that letting Gov. LePage or Rep. Larry Lockman speak is (as paraphrased by the reporter) “concerning because it makes people think that their views are the norm” obviously didn’t notice that LePage won the election. Hello?! He received more votes than any other candidate; therefore, his views are the norm. (And, no, I didn’t vote for him.)

The paraphrased student (Iris SanGiovanni) obviously has no confidence in the judgment of her peers among the student body. Otherwise, she wouldn’t feel the need to control the information they receive from other than her own hand-picked sources.

It must be exhilarating to consider oneself the very pinnacle of correct information. Perhaps instead of having another silly election, she would deign to inspire us all by simply declaring herself Fearless Leader.
