Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

Republican Governor Paul LePage:
“Now, to add insult to injury, The University of Maine, Presque Isle – anybody here been up there to see that damn windmill in the back yard? Guess what, if it’s not blowing wind outside and they have somebody visiting the campus, they have a little electric motor that turns the blades. I’m serious. They have an electric motor so that they can show people wind power works. Unbelievable."
“If there’s no wind, the turbine won’t spin,” helpfully explained University of Maine at Presque Isle’s director of community and media relations Rachel Rice in response to LePage's idiotic lies. No word yet if LePage considers reality-based rebuttal a matter of adding insult to injury.
