Someone contacted me through an anonymous third-party proxy and offered me $200 for this domain name. So funny -
1) If I sold this domain, I’m sure I could think of another domain name to use, so I’m not sure what the benefit is to the buyer.
2) $200? God, with all the welfare my liberal ass is pulling down you’d better make a bigger offer than that. As we know from asmainegoes.com welfare moms make $54,000 a year just for breathing. Those figures, according to AMG, came from ex-state senator Lois Snowe-Mello so you know they’re accurate.
3) You can just e-mail me your next offer. There better be 5 digits!

Welcome to the only website in the world created for the purpose of making fun of another website. I read As Maine Goes daily and really enjoy it. It is a conservative message board. If you wrote characters for a book based on people that post at As Maine Goes, the critics would rip you apart for your stereotypical depiction of the chest-thumping, bible-toting, “real” american i’m-a-redneck-and-proud-of-it types that share their wisdom on a daily basis. But it is real. These people exist.
Now, I’m sure most of them are nice enough in person. We would probably enjoy each other’s company in non-political setting like a BBQ or a baseball game. I say probably because, being a liberal, I’ve never actually experienced either of those two things. Are they like a Regatta? Those are fun. Anyways, my point is that we’re probably very similar in a non-political sense. I also don’t doubt that they truly want what is best for their country and their children.
None of that makes them any less batshit crazy.
So I’m building a “Cast” section that will document the posters I think are most interesting. I also want to keep tabs on the latest and greatest examples of nuttiness in the Hall of Fame as I have time. That is all for now.
