Governor Or Beauty Queen?

The two most powerful people in Maine were guests on The Nite Show With Danny Cashman last night, Modern Philosophers.

I’m talking about newly re-elected Governor, Paul LePage, and newly crowned Miss Maine, Heather Elwell.

I’m sure many of you are wondering why Stephen King doesn’t crack the Maine Power Top Two, but the truth is, he doesn’t spend as much time in Maine anymore.  Since the Governor and the Beauty Queen are here all the time, their residency status boosts them to the top of the charts.

Tonight’s topic for Deep Thought is: If you could interview only one of Maine’s two most powerful people, which one would you choose?

Here are some photos from last night, along with some interesting background information to assist you in your pondering…Miss Maine fluteMiss Maine is a leggy brunette who surprised the audience with a delightful flute solo.  She told us she plays seven musical instruments.

Governore ThreeGovernor LePage overcame adversity (most of it caused by his own words and actions) to receive the highest percentage of the vote in a Maine Gubernatorial Election since 1998.

So what do you think, Modern Philosophers?  Given the photographs and the additional fun facts I’ve provided about Governor LePage and Miss Maine, which one would you want to interview? 

Remember, like elections and beauty pageants, this is totally a popularity contest, so you don’t even need to justify your answer unless you desire to do so.

    Interviewee: JED, do you think maybe you could interview me without staring at my legs?

    Me: Oh sorry, Governor I just can’t help myself.

    But seriously. Miss Maine has my vote.

    Miss Maine would be fun to hang out with, interviewing the Governor would just be pure comedy (not that he would realize it).

    I think you should go undercover to interview Miss Maine. Not the governor, definitely.

    Sorry, Austin, somebody had to play the crass guy role. I waited days for another to step up, but no.
