All politics is local

We're currently in Maine and a lovely state it is.

All the more reason to hope that Mainers succeed in replacing some of their more crackpot politicians this November. Here, from Norman Ornstein, is a National Journal summary of some items from Maine Republicans:

...the Maine Republican Party adopted a platform that called for the abolition of the Federal Reserve, called global warming a myth, and demanded an investigation of "collusion between government and industry" in perpetrating that myth. It also called for resistance to "efforts to create a one world government."

You'd think that might be over the top for a lot of people.

Here's Democratic Senate candidate Shenna Bellows speaking at Netroots Nation; she'd be an upgrade indeed.
